The article describes in a chronological overview the lexicographical processing of the entry cikán (‘Gypsy’) and its derivatives which are now perceived as more or less discriminatory and establishes historical and political references. Central attention is directed to the dictionary articles from the Concise dictionary of the Czech language: the author explores the connections between the dictionary articles and the tenor of the excerpted material which is available online as a digitized card index. In this way one can partly determine to what extent one can infer an evidence of a prejudice that has accompanied the presence of the Sinti and Roma on the Bohemian / Czech or Moravian territory for centuries until today.
