The verb kisnuti ‘to sit’ as attested in the Serbian craftsmen’s secret languages has parallels in Bulgarian craftsmen’s argot. This word has hitherto been treated in the SANU Dictionary (PCA) as a homonym of kisnuti ‘to become wet, damp; to become sour’. The aim of present paper is to show that the argot word can also be interpreted as a result of semantic development of the standard language word through a dialectal mediation.
