The Evolution of Slovenian

Slovenian is a South Slavic language in the Indo-Germanic language family. Slovenian is spoken as a native language by approximately 2 million people, most of whom live in Slovenia. However, there are also minorities in Northeast Italy, Western Hungary and Croatia, as well as in Carinthia.

Slovenian originated from Proto-Slavic, which developed before the 9th Century. From this Proto-Slavic, Old Slavic came into being in the 9th Century and was almost exclusively used as a written language, and which was the basis for the Church Slavonic developed as of the 11th Century.

From the 13th Century, Slovenia fell under the the rule of the House of Habsburg, finally joining the multinational state of Austria-Hungary in 1867. Through the House of Habsburg’s dominance, Slovenian became the dominant language and German became the language of administration and science. In the early 1900s, a national movement arose which sought to remove the German elements from Slovenian by creating Slovenian equivalents for German words. In 1918, Slovenia became part of the Kingdom of Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia, and it was endeavoured to create a common written language. In order to preserve the Slovenian language, a language academy was founded.

Today, Slovenian is an independent language comprising 7 dialects spoken by various ethnic minorities in Italy, Carinthia and Hungary.
