Languages of publication
The paper reflects the versatility with which Prof. PhDr. Jozef Mistrík, DrSc. (1921–2000) worked in the Studia Academica Slovaca centre, especially as the Director of the Summer School of Slovak Language and Culture. He carried out the function for two decades (1972 – 1991). Under his leadership, the SAS shaped from the point of view of its contents as well as methodology, and became a competitive institution, significantly contributing to the national interdisciplinary Slovakistics and its development abroad. Jozef Mistrík was an author of numerous original projects and products, up to now representing the SAS, but at the same time differentiating it from other institutions of similar focus of activity. With the establishment of the SAS Proceedings 40 years ago began the edition series of specific publication of the papers delivered as lectures during the individual summer schools. In his lectures, Jozef Mistrík presented in a particular manner the results of his academic research, especially in the field of stylistics, frequency research and grammatical and lexical structure of Slovak in confrontation with other languages. Thanks to his managerial and promotional skills, the SAS became popular in media, and its events also started being archived in the SAS chronicles, up to the present day still recording every year of the summer school and specifically giving evidence of the program and the participants of this international event.
