Summary/Abstract: Didactic Etymological and Historical Dictionary of Polish Language (DSEHJP) available on-line was developed at the Section of History of Polish Language and Dialectology of the University of Warsaw in the academic year 2017/2018. The dictionary was co-created by students and is connected with teaching content in the field of diachronic linguistics, acquired at various stages of Polish language education. By participating in the project, students of Polish studies gain and deepen their knowledge of lexicography, etymology, historical and comparative linguistics. The article refers to the principles of selecting words and sources for the dictionary, as well as various problems faced by the authors of the project. For example, the issue of writing Proto-Indo-European forms with different ablaut grades or distinguishing words from fixed word combination, and the latter from phraseological units had to be resolved. The project was favourably assessed by students participating in it, as seen in the results of the survey conducted among them.
