Four Starting Points in the History of the Croatian Standard Language

Darija Gabrić-Bagarić; Institut za hrvatski jezik i jezikoslovlje, Zagreb, Hrvatska
The 17th century is the focal period in the development of the Croatian standard language: that is the time when the Croatian grammar, translations of major works (the lectionary, the ritual, the Bible), and the first large-scale dictionary with the Croatian literary and spoken language entries in the initial column came into being. The emergence of these works are the landmarks in the history of the Croatian literary and standard language, they mark the beginnings of its planned standardisation and the point from which we can start following its development.
