Description The book presents a summary of author's selected studies and analysis in the field of South Slavonic studies, but above all on questions related to Serbo-Croatian and the languages in which it transformed after 1990 (Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Montenegrin). The chapters are mainly sociolinguistically focused. The author tried to make organic sequence of the chapters, so the book started with general overview of South Slavonic languages, their classification, grammar, but also the graphical systems used in the South Slavonic area. In the next chapters the author pays attention mainly to the problematic elements in the history and the present relations between the particular "Serbo-Croatian" nations and their languages. Sociolinguistic issues are intertwined with language didactics, university philology studies, translatology, constitution and relevant legal norms and, last but not least, politics. The last, eighth chapter is devoted to the book Language and Nationalism, which precisely reveals the mechanisms of politicizing language and linguistic research.
