IMPORTANT MOMENTS DURING THE PROCESS OF LANGUAGE STANDARDIZATION PROCESS
Languages of publication
In the present contribution, we have attemped to explain the relation between the Slovak and Bulgarian standard languages from several aspects: firstly, we discuss their relation to the respective literary tradition, then we try to define their position within the respective dialectal systems. Their relation to the national language is also considered as regards the territorial unity of that language (i. e. generally spoken language and its language tradition). In both cases (i. e. in Slovak as well as in Bulgarian) a common phenomenon is observed: it is a so-called cultural language (supradialectal language) not a single dialect that served as basis for a standard language system.
