Summary/Abstract: Over a thousand years of coexistence or living side by side has reciprocally left traces both in Hungarian and the South Slav languages; nevertheless, it has not changed the basic character of these languages. Interaction on the level of grammatical structures is insignificant; it is mostly manifested in the borrowing of words, which can be successfully followed basing our observations on lists of words or dictionaries compiled in earlier times. This study examines how the process of borrowing Hungarian words is reflected in a representative work of the end of the 19th century, the Blagoje Brančić and Đorđe Dera Serbian – Hungarian Dictionary containing some 40,000 words.
