Abstract

Serbo-Croatian Abstract: U članku se kritički analizira knjiga Stjepana Babića "Hrvatska jezikoslovna prenja". Pokazuje se da njen autor ima neznanstveni puristički pristup i da zastupa proizvoljni preskriptivizam. Opisuje se zašto je neopravdano tvrditi da je "šport" jezično čistiji od "sporta" i zašto je posve neutemeljeno proganjati posvojni genitiv.

English Abstract: The article critically analyzes Stjepan Babić's book "Croatian Linguistic Polemics". The book is shown to have an unscientific purist approach and to advocate arbitrary prescriptivism. The article also describes why it is unjustified to claim that "šport" is linguistically purer than "sport" and why it is unfounded to persecute the possessive genitive.
