The objective of this project is to explore diachronic and synchronic aspects of lexicological issues in Standard Slovene and its dialects in all of their varieties. It is contrastive in nature and examines Slovene neologisms as well as various forms and degrees of adaptation of the words borrowed into Slovene from English, German and Hungarian. It is particularly interested in those words that are formed under the influence of foreign languages and that have become acceptable word-formation patterns in Standard Slovene and its dialects. The project takes into account Slovene lexicological tradition, the history of the language from the 16th century on, and a planned and focused dialectological research that brings new insights into the functioning of language and the complexity of its elements. It also provides more reliable guidelines for creating field-specific terminologies. The project brings new findings about the rules and maintenance of lexical tradition in the naming of reality in various areas of linguistic varieties, and aims at writing lexical and pictorial dictionaries and descriptions of realia. It includes a study of eastern Slovene variety of Slovene in relation to Standard Slovene, analyzing texts by authors from Prekmurje and eastern Styria, and collecting and preparing material for different dictionaries: those concerned with word families, historical ones and synchronic ones. Stylistically, the project focuses on a linguistic study of the polyphony of Slovene literary texts, as, from an inter-textual perspective, these represent a link between various literary and linguistic codes. Of particular interest is the role of dialects and stylistics in relation to Standard Slovene. The project examines the influence of foreign languages from a contrastive perspective, focusing on lexicological issues in written and in spoken discourse, especially in the language of media and slang.
