Abstract

Serbo-Croatian Abstract: Kritičkom analizom tekstova kojima su autori Stjepan Babić, Leopold Auburger, Stjepan Damjanović i Vinko Grubišić, u ovom članku se na osnovi obimne inozemne literature pokazuje da ne postoje čisti jezici i da je purizam suprotan od znanstvenog pristupa jeziku. Nadalje, govori se o načinu kako nastaju nacije i kada se to odvijalo na južnoslavenskom prostoru. Opisuje se teorija policentričnih jezika i odnos između nacionalnih varijanata. Navode se primjeri iz engleskog jezika, njemačkog, nizozemskog, hindustanskog i drugih. Detaljnije se govori o nezavisnosti sociolingvistike od politike, i o sociolingvističkim kriterijima za utvrđivanje da li se radi o jednom jeziku ili o nekoliko jezika.

English Abstract: Critically analyzing texts authored by Stjepan Babić, Leopold Auburger, Stjepan Damjanović and Vinko Grubišić, this article argues, on the basis of extensive linguistic literature, that there are no pure languages and that purism is the opposite of a scientific approach to language. Furthermore, the article discusses the way nations were formed in the South Slavic area. The theory of polycentric languages and the relationship between national variants are described and examples from English, German, Dutch, and Hindustani are cited. The independence of sociolinguistics from politics and the sociolinguistic criteria for determining whether it is a single or several languages are also discussed.
