SPORNÉ OTÁZKY SLOVENSKEJ MORFOLÓGIE: MALÉ PRIPOMENUTIE PO 60 ROKOCH
The issues of the Slovak morphology: Reminded after 60 years
Languages of publication
The discussions in Slovak linguistics of the 1950s were dealing with several fundamental issues of grammar, lexicology and lexicography. These discussions resulted from the actual and intense development within grammatical and lexicographical descriptions of Slovak language that led to publication of the Dictionary of Slovak Language (Slovník slovenského jazyka, 1959 – 1968) and the still unrivalled Morphology of Slovak Language (Morfológia slovenského jazyka, 1966). J. Ružička, as a head of the Department of Standard Language and, later, as a director of the whole Ľudovít Štúr Institute of Linguistics of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, as well as a member of several committees of the International Committee of Slavists was at that time one of the leading figures within research of Slovak grammar. Sixty years after the publication of his study Controversial Issues of Slovak Morphology, this paper touches the core of those times’ discussions and reflects upon today’s issues of Slovak morphology, with regard to – amongst others – Slovak educational practise, into which J. Ružička was trying to introduce results of contemporary linguistic research as a member and chairman of several examination boards, as well as the co-author of several schoolbooks.
