In our research programm, which represents a continuation of the programme Slovene language, Slovene literature and Teaching Slovene Language and Literature (2009-2012), now with the supplemented title Slovene language and Literature in Danube Region, we will examine the role and significance of Slovene language, literature and culture in the region defined by the EU strategy for Danube Region, that is, in the intercultural region formed by the contact of Slovene language and other Slavic languages (Criatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Ukraine), with German (Germany, Austria), Hungarian (Hungary) and Romanian (Romania) region. We will examine the position of Slovene language in the region (diachronic and synchronic research) and thus demonstrate the significance of national languages, literatures and cultures (in our case, Slovene language as an important regional language) for sustainable development and competitiveness of this part of Europe. Slovene language in the region will be examined in several communication positions. We will discuss the lexikology, dialectology, word formation and phraseology. Linguistic researc will be supplemented by literary history. Main focus will be put on 1) history of language 2) language in contact and conflikt 3)language of different interest groups 4) monolingualism, bilingualism, plurilingualism 5)relation between standard language and actual usage 6) language planning 7)interlinguistic, multicultural and intercultural contacts in the field of literature 8)cultural ecology and ecolinguistics 9) significance of national language and literature in the global world.
Significance for science
Economic growth in the European region has become impossible to achieve without quality sience and research. When compared to researchers from the rest of the world. Slovene resoarchers are distinguished by a very high level of scientific exellence in the field of our natioanl sciences, e.g. Slovene language and literature. It has to be in Slovenia's existential and development interest to support and promote such research, while we, as scholars of Slovene studies, strive to attain the highest degree of exellence in our research, demonstrating that the latter has to be conducted in the national language. The research programme is designed in a way that will examine and evaluate the role and significance of Slovene language and literature in the European Union, with the focus on the Danube region. Our research will provide new perspectives on development of standard written Slovene and raise the awareness of the neeed for careful planning when dealing with issuses of language in nationally mixed areas and active engagement in those areas of foreign countries which contain Slovene population. Research has to affirm the obligation of our national community to contribute to the treasury of world linguistic and literary knowledge with knowledge about our language and literature. A specila emphasis is also put on research of Slovene dialects, with our group focusing on Styrian, Carinthian and East Styrian dialects. We will also examine relations between Central Slovene and East Slovene language norm and conduct research of word-formation , terminological, lexikological and phraseological uses of Slovene language, which will consider contacts with other different, border and foreign language areas. In the field of literary science research, important new results will be obtained through revised chapters of literary history, which will also include non-canonical authors. This will introduce extensive and up to this point largely overlooked corpuses of literature from the first and second half of the 20th century. Research will put special emphasis on presentation of contacts, interculturalism and multiculturalism in Slovene language and literature. The programme will present the model of Slovenia's language policy, which has to comply with the EU's multilingualism policy and promote studying of neighbouring languages, cultures and literatures.
Significance for the country
Slovene language, literature and culture play an important role in establishing Slovene national identity, consciousness and self-affirmation. It is important for the cultural development of Slovenia that the influence of Slovene language in the Danube region is increased. The Public Use of the Slovene Language Act can serve as a useful starting point in promotion of multilingualism and learning of neighbouring languages in our region, while the Resolution on National Programme for Language Policy could offer a useful model for addressing issues. Slovenia must not allow for the European language policy to lead, for the sake of globalization ans easier communication, to conditions similar to those in former Yugoslavia. Slovene language and culture contribute signigicantly to European multiculturalism, representing an important factor in promoting the country, which can achieve recognition in a global word primarily on the account of its language and culture. Slovene literature represents an important element of our cultural heritage, while Slovene language has been extremely exposed during the most important period of formation of Slovene people, since the issues of language at the time also always represented the issue of politics.
