Summary/Abstract: In this paper, I focus on theoretical framework in order to explain the term “Slavic micro-language.” Then, I will be taking a closer look at two attempts of language standardisa-tion: the situation with the Bunjevci in Serbia and with the Pomaks in Greece. I assume that an authentic standardisation is only possible in appropriate linguistic, social, and political settings of these minority speakers.
