Abstract

Serbo-Croatian Abstract: U članku se kritički analiziraju teorije koje je njihov autor Josip Silić iznio u knjizi "Funkcionalni stilovi hrvatskoga jezika". Osnovna među njima je teorija da postoje odvojeno jedan od drugoga "jezik kao sustav" i "jezik kao standard". Na nju se nadovezuje teorija da jezik književnih djela "nije vid standardnog jezika", odnosno da književni stil nije jedan od funkcionalnih stilova standardnog jezika. Nakon što je u članku pokazana neodrživost tih teorija, kritički se pomoću brojnih primjera pokazuje da autor knjige preskriptivno pristupa jeziku. Usto se korigira i niz tvrdnji o znanstvenom stilu koje nalazimo u knjizi.

English Abstract: The article critically analyzes the theories presented in the book "Functional Styles of the Croatian Language" by Josip Silić. The basic among them is the theory that there are a separate "language as system" and a separate "language as standard". Another one is the theory that the language of literary works is "not a form of the standard language", that is, the literary style is not one of the functional styles of the standard language. Having demonstrated the untenability of these theories in the article, it is critically shown that the author of the book prescriptively approaches the language. The article also corrects numerous claims about the scientific style in the book.
