Słoweńska „abecedna vojna” i pierwsza ukraińska «азбучна війна» w Galicji – próba porównania
MetadataShow full item record
The Slovenian "alphabet war" (1830-1838) began in Carniola and Styria independently after publishing two grammar books that tried to codify the Slovenian language. The author of the first one was P. Dajnko, who invented the dajnćica alphabet. The second grammar book was published by F. Metelko, who developed the metelčica alphabet, based on set of modified Latin and Cyrillic charts. Their opponents (F. Prešeren, M. Čop) did not agree on the imposed spelling and grammar reform that was based only on one dialect. The first Ukrainian "alphabet war" (1833-1837) was about the change of the Cyrillic script to the Polish one based Latin (J. Lozynskyi). The followers of latinization argued that it will join Ukrainian literature to the European one and will help in the daily communication between the Poles and Ukrainians. The antagonists stressed on the long history of the Cyrillic script, the correct representation of Ukrainian sounds and its sacred character. Both polemics were influenced by a Slovene Jernej Kopitar, the censor of Slavonic books in Vienna.
