Summary
Democratic changes that took place in Czechoslovakia in 1989 and the foundation of the Slovakian Republic have brought about significant changes in the Slovak language as well. The major changes can be observed on the lexical level. The author analyses the lexis of contemporary Slovakian media (newspapers, television and radio) and that of the conversational style of the young (mostly student) population. The corpus thus obtained is then classified according to lexicological, formational and syntactic criteria on the one hand, and different types of influence on the other. The author's conclusion and comparison of numerous examples points to the similarity of such processes in Slovak and Croatian languages.
