Sažetak

SMS text messaging has become one of the most dominant means of communication in
Croatia. With respect to their linguistic features SMS text messages have become a
language variety in their own right, exhibiting specific regularities in different aspects of
language use. We investigate the use of tenses in Croatian SMS text messages in
comparison to standard written Croatian. The results show a different distribution or
reshuffling of past tenses, with a reappearance of tenses considered to be obsolete. We
also look into the reasons that triggered off these changes as well as their impact on the
Croatian tense system.
