This time, the authors of Prywatny leksykon współczesnej polszczyzny (in 2010 their files totalled about 13 mln characters) chose from their archive a linguistic phenomenon illustrating the daily concern of town inhabitants with all sorts of material aspects (in the countryside the situation was slightly different, and thus the vocabulary varied). The mass media spoke a language of their own, as did the people, but for obvious reasons both sides maintained mutual relations; this is the reason why the authors cite the language of the street, private conversations and the press of the period. They present examples of a vocabulary concentrated on the household, money, prices, bribes, rationing, dollars and foreign currency tokens.
