Summary/Abstract: Mak Dizdar’s poetry is abundant with versatile properties of linguistic expression, at all levels of analysis: phonetic, morphological, syntactic... His word plays never denote aesthetic function only; rather, they always serve a deeper purpose of sound realization and semantic function. His verses consist of suggestive phonetic expressions, thus making the process of translation even more complex. This paper offers a brief look into the translation of Dizdar’s verse by Francis R. Jones.
