This description is based on the policy statements, upcoming releases, proclamations addressed to readers, announcements of the editorial board, the publisher and administration personnel, as well as the reports of the Society for Proper Use of the Polish Language (Towarzystwo Poprawności Języka Polskiego) (from 1934 – the Society for Proper Language Use and Culture Propagation (Towarzystwo Krzewienia Poprawności i Kultury Języka)) published in Poradnik Językowy (The Linguistic Guide) (shortly referred to by its founder as Poradnik (The Guide)). In order to restore the arrangement of sections in Poradnik, annual lists of the journal’s contents were used, as they not only organise its structure but also make it possible to look at it through the eyes of the editor who, when compiling the annual list, had to determine the hierarchy of the sections first and then assign specific texts and names of their authors to them. His selection proved to be an invaluable clue in identifying the authors of the texts (which contain references to texts written by various persons whose names are revealed or hidden under initials) and matching a given text to a specific section*.
1931 was the closing year for the Cracow period of the journal, while 1932 opened the Warsaw period. Until 1931, Roman Zawiliński – the founder of Poradnik – was its publisher and editor responsible for the periodical. Throughout the time when he was the editor-in-chief of Poradnik, Roman Zawiliński felt that he was serving his nation. In 1932, the journal became a body of the Society for Proper Use of the Polish Language, which was founded in Warsaw at the end of 1929. The Society entrusted the function of the journal’s editor to Kazimierz Król. After his resignation, this position was held by Witold Doroszewski.
