Abstract

Serbo-Croatian Abstract: Analiza knjige Dalibora Brozovića "Prvo lice jednine" pokazuje da se u toj knjizi odstupilo od osnovnog pravila znanstvenog pisanja, a to je da se navode dokazi za tvrdnje. Uskrativši čitatelju mogućnost da čuje dokaze ili protudokaze, očekuje se od njega da tvrdnjama vjeruje. Jedna od glavnih tema u knjizi je pravopis. Koristeći emocionalno nabijeni diskurs, autor zahtijeva povinjavanje društva izmjenama koje Pravopis Babić-Finka-Moguš donosi u svakom novom izdanju. Kritički uvid u "Prvo lice jednine" razotkriva niz kontradikcija u tvrdnjama Dalibora Brozovića kako o pravopisu tako i o standardnom jeziku, a ukazuje i na netočne Brozovićeve izjave o jezičnoj situaciji u Njemačkoj.

English Abstract: This critical analysis of Dalibor Brozović's book "The First Person Singular" shows that the book deviated from the basic rule of scientific writing, which is to adduce evidence for the claims. By depriving the reader the opportunity to hear evidence or counter-evidence, the reader is expected to believe the claims. One of the main topics in the book is spelling. Using emotionally charged discourse, the author wants the society to obey the changes that the Babić-Finka-Moguš spelling introduces in every new issue. The critical insight into "The First Person Singular" reveals a number of contradictions in Dalibor Brozović's claims about spelling as well as standard language, and points to Brozović's inaccurate statements about the linguistic situation in Germany.
