The authors consider grammatical terms in the Croatian Kajkavian literary language. Two dictionaries, seven grammars and three orthography manuals (the 18th and 19th centuries) were closely analysed with respect to the following terms – grammar, morphology, syntax, phonetics and phonology, and parts of speech (i. e. nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, exclamations, and conjunctions). All terms were compared to those in two other historical Croatian languages – Čakavian and Štokavian. It was found that the Kajkavian, Čakavian and Štokavian authors of grammars, dictionaries and orthography manuals were aware of the books their predecessors and contemporaries had written and of the grammatical terms they had used. It is implied that their intention was to standardize terminological systems to a certain extent in order to make scholarly and cultural communication easier. Therefore, throughout the process of grammatical term development, no matter whether in Kajkavian, Čakavian or Štokavian, they had the Croatian language as a whole in mind.
