Often, in public and professional circles, the Slovene language is treated as a priceless commodity that needs to be respected, nurtured and protected. Unfortunately, the result of such care is more often than not a misunderstanding of the diversity of linguistic types, as well

The resulting article discusses the existing outlook on the publicly spoken language in the realms of media and science in Slovenia. Most importantly, we offer a simple solution – speech (speaking) and speech research with a target goal: to develop high quality public discourse.
