The article shows the preliminary stage of a research work – pioneering at that time – on the
city language as well as of the formation of sociolinguistic methods to describe the contemporary
oral Polish; it gives the account of a group of linguists based in Katowice the leading figure of which
was Władysław Lubaś – his intellectual passion and undisputed scholarly authority gave rise to the
Katowice school of socioliguistics.
