Dokumentiranje i interpretiranje najstarijih razdoblja hrvatskoga jezika

Opis projekta
The oldest Slavic language attestations on Croatian territory date from two periods - the first which saw the disintegration of Common Slavic (9th-11th c.), and the second which saw the beginnings of the Croatian language (12th-13th c.). This Slavic vernacular, which was the direct predecessor of present-day Croatian, coexisted with the liturgical Croatian Church Slavic, whose oldest written texts can be dated to the 11th c. The earliest attestations of the Croatian language are scattered throughout written sources of various nature, from individual words found in Latin and Church Slavic texts, glosses, and notes in the margins of medieval codices to Glagolitic epigraphs. This language has not yet been analyzed in its entirety. The backbone of the project will be formed by a corpus of the earliest attested Croatian lexical data. Such a corpus does not yet exist. This early Croatian corpus will reflect the development of the languages between the 9th and 13th centuries, some of the earliest isoglosses between Croatian and other Slavic languages, as well as some of the earliest Croatian dialectal isoglosses and interaction with western European – especially Romance and Germanic – and eastern European cultural and linguistic entities. The earliest onomastic data of Slavic origin plays an important role in this research. The research will be conducted using the traditional methods and tools of historical linguistics, such as text analysis and interpretation and the comparative method. The research team consists of four researchers and five junior researchers from a number of academic institutions (Zagreb, Zadar, Leiden). The aims of the proposed project are: (1) to create a complete collection of the oldest attestations of the Croatian language; (2) to improve our understanding of the structural changes in early Croatian and the rise of the earliest isoglosses within Croatian; (3) to place the beginnings of the Croatian language in a wider Slavic and non-Slavic context.
