The papers published in the Dajnko Proceedings highlight the educational character of Dajnko’s literary and linguistic endeavors. His ambition was to establish an Eastern-Styrian variant of the Slovene literary language. He wished to preserve the national identity along the eastern ethnic border. The new literary language codified in his grammar originates in the dialect, but also contains elements of the Central literary language both on phonological and morphological levels. The Volkmer Proceedings contain the analysis of Volkmer’s vocabulary in Pleteršnik’s dictionary, the presentation of Anton Murko’s editorial modifications of L. Volkmer’s poems, and lexical aspects of Volkmer’s poems. The Murko Symposium, which took place in Hoce, dealt with the Styrian region in the first half of the 19th century from the linguistic, literary, cultural and political perspectives. The papers shed light on Murko’s opposition to Styrian linguistic separatism and on his endeavors to create a uniform Slovene literary language. Murko’s bilingual Slovene-German and German-Slovene dictionary is an important achievement of Slovene lexicography. Both in his grammar and dictionary Murko included dialectal items in addition to the Central literary entries. He took into consideration the Eastern-Slovene literary tradition and deliberately included it into his endeavors for the creation of a uniform literary language. The project also focused on the study of the Prekmurje dialect in the printed materials of the 18th and the 19th centuries (Ivanocy, Košic, Klekl). The relevant findings have been published in a book. The early poems by Stanko Vraz written in Slovene have also been analyzed.
