Some interesting facts about the Slovenian language

The development of written Slovenian

The current form of Slovenian is written using the Latin alphabet, with a few added letters. The development of written Slovenian began with the Bohorič script. Finally it was Ljudevit Gaj who developed the current script and Stanko Vraz developed the first book written in the Gaj script in 1839.

Bohorič script

Prior to today’s script by Ljudevit Gaj various alphabets were used in Slovenia. It began with the Bohorič script. Adam Bohorič was a Slovenian language expert and his script was used from the 16th to the 19th century. There were only a few differences from today’s Slovenian script.

Metelko script

In 1825 the priest Fran Metelko believed it was time for a different alphabet from the Bohorič script. The script was based on the German system, which is what persuaded Metelko to develop a new script.

The script that Metelko developed was felt to be cumbersome because it used a separate letter for every sound. This meant that there were so many letters that the script was difficult to use in practice. In 1833 the Metelko script was banned by the government.

Dajnko script

The Dajnko alphabet was based on the Metelko script, but much simpler. It was developed in 1824 by the priest Peter Dajnko. Together with four others Dajnko published approximately 50,000 copies of a textbook on the script. Finally this script was also banned, in 1838.

Gaj script

Today’s Slovenian script is based on the work of the Croat Ljudevit Gaj. He reformed the Latin alphabet for Croatian and was inspired by the Czech alphabet. Certain people, including Stanko Vraz, joined forces with Gaj.

They shared the same opinion; they all felt that the Croats and Slovenians hardly differed from each other. So an alphabet was developed which would contribute to bringing the southern Slavic peoples together, and later all Slavic peoples. With this in mind the script was spread throughout the Slovenian crown territories.

Slovenian is one of the oldest written Slavic languages

The oldest written Slovenian documents are the Freisinger manuscripts. The precise date of these religious documents is not known but it is said that they were written in the 9th century.

This makes them one of the oldest written texts among the Slavic languages. The documents were discovered in Freising, in Germany. The texts have now been preserved in the Bavarian State Library in Munich since 1803. They have only been exhibited once in Slovenia, in 2004.
