Summary
The paper focuses on the syntactic traits of the Croatian language in the editions of the Karletzky Printing House which operated in Rijeka from 1779 until the last decade of the 19th century. Among those that have been attested in several editions, even those of different types, and that are confirmed as a part of the syntactic structure of the Croatian language in the 19th century, or that indicate changes caused by the linguistic development and standardization processes, is the za + infinitive structure. In this paper we analyse the frequency, status and function of this structure in the Karletzky Printing House editions in the Croatian language in the period between 1790 and 1878 and we view it in the context of the currently available facts about its status in Croatian literature and standard language.
