Abstract

Serbo-Croatian Abstract: Jedan tekst koji je napisao Zvonko Pandžić i jedan koji je napisao Tonko Maroević koriste se kao povod da bi se u ovome članku opisalo kako dolazi do nastanka naroda i nacija, i kako se oblikuje nacionalni identitet. Govori se i o tome što je u prošlosti značio pojam "ilirski", a što je značio pojam "hrvatski". Nadalje, pomoću brojnih primjera u svijetu pokazuje se da nacija nije podudarna s jezikom. Na sociolingvističkom planu razmatra se pojam policentričnosti, uloga međusobne razumljivosti i povlače se usporedbe s njemačkim jezikom. Pored toga, propituje se da li stavovi laika u narodu mogu imati status sociolingvističkog kriterija.

English Abstract: A text by Zvonko Pandžić and a text by Tonko Maroević are critically analyzed in this article in order to describe how peoples, nations, and national identities are formed. The article also talks of what the terms "Illyrian" and "Croatian" have meant in the past. Furthermore, it considers the notion of polycentricity, the role of mutual intelligibility, and draws comparisons with the German language. In addition, it is questioned whether views of lay people can have the status of sociolinguistic criterion.
