DRAMA WITHIN LANGUAGE OR LINGUISTIC DILEMMAS REGARDING FREU DEN REICH'S BORDERMEN

Author:
Lada Badurina; Pedagoški fakultet, Rijeka
Summary
The language in Freudenreich's drama (folk drama) was often characterized as folk. The search for elements of stokavian dialect demonstrates limitations of such a characterization. This is by no means a negative aspect of Freudenreich's style, but a possibility to understand his language use from a viewpoint closer to modern comprehension of literary language. Furthermore speech analysis of individual characters only occasionally demonstrates a more successful language characterization. This needs to be regarded in the context of the period in which this drama came into existence, and the language undoubtedly played a major role in its success.
