Abstract

The management of Standard Slovak was entrusted to the Ľudovít Štúr Linguistic Institute after World War II. It exercised its influence through both formal and informal channels and was motivated by cultural, ethnic, as well as political concerns. The paper discusses how Slovak language planning affected place names, personal names, and legislation (the Law on the State Language) and provides a historical perspective on usage that became the subject of legislation.
