It has been registered as a research-development project of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The list of sources for the corpus contains classic literature, daily newspapers, specialist periodicals and journals, transcripts of conversations, and a variety of short-lived and internet texts. The resources represent wide diversity with respect to the subject and genre. The spoken part covers both male and female speakers, in various age groups, coming from various regions in Poland. The 1-million subcorpus of NKJP has been manually annotated.
