Summary/Abstract: “The electronic corpus of 17th- and 18th-century Polish texts (up to 1772)”, which is currently being created at the Institute of Polish Language, Polish Academy of Sciences, is meant to constitute a part of the National Corpus of Polish and as such will be able to be searched by the National Corpus’ search engines. The rules of transliteration and annotation of baroque texts ensure the implementation of two basic objectives: a faithful mapping of the notation and structure of ancient texts and providing the user with convenient methods of finding information in the corpus. The markup will allow the user to, e.g. search for phrases with a graphical form other than the contemporary one, to eliminate undesired results and to obtain information about the context of the searched expression and about its exact location in the text.
