The paper first has a brief review of recent publications concerning the phonetic, phonemic and statistical status of nasal vowels in colloquial Polish. The author then presents an investigation of the, nasal yowels in child language. Two methods of research have been employed: 1. Observation of recorded small talk, spontaneous utterances in the group of 30 children; 2. a repeating test conducted in a group of 7 children. We have only 6% nasal realizations and only several phonemes in spontaneous utterances. In the repeating test were found 55% nasal realisations, 62% for phonem ǫ, 18% for phonem ę. 100% for variants in the pre-fricatiye position. The author thus concludes that the child language has two potential phonemes in its inventory (/ǫ/) and (/ę/). The phenomena in the child language display indications on the one side of the same status as in the adults language and on the other side anticipate the same changes in colloquial Polish, i.e. the disappoaring of nasal vowel phonemes.
