Log 6

Read about sociolinguistics and Serbocroatian from Bugarski’s book. Very good stuff, and it’s especially interesting to look at the similarity between that time’s and today’s atitude toward the “degradation” of language, especially as words of foreign origin are blamed in both cases. It’s also a strange feeling, reading about the then perceived possible future of Serbocroatian (the book’s written in the 80s), and knowing what will happen in the 90s.

Had a very special night.
