Str. 41 - 69
In older Croatian manuscripts, in literary, linguistic and other works the Croatian language was generally called Illyrian. This tendency existed as far back as the Renaissance and came wholly to the fore in Croatian culture after the Trident council, that is during the period of the Catholic restoration. Bartol Kašić from Pag, the author of the first Croatian grammar, played a key role in the process of the standardization of the Croatian language. In his Grammar he standardized the language of the štokavian basis which superseded the dialects and named it Illyrian. Through an analysis of old Croatian grammars during the 17th, 18th and the beginning of the 19th century one notes that the majority of grammarians followed the example of their predecessors and that within the history of the Croatian language one can follow the continuity of the standardization of the literary language from the first Croatian grammar all the way up to the Illyrian grammar written by Vjekoslav Babukić in 1836.
