Summary/Abstract: The paper presents the project of the Diachronic Corpus of Polish (DCP), which is intended as a cohesive collection of smaller corpora, arising in various scientific centers and covering various time ranges. This corpus will include texts covering the years 1380-1939 and will complement the National Corpus of Polish. The aim of the project is creating a balanced corpus presenting the history of the development of the Polish language and constituting a data basis for language researchers and a point of comparison for the historical corpora of European and world languages. The different parts of the corpus consist of 24 million words in total, while the target NPDC will constitute a repository of 40 million words.
