Short Description

"Bulgarian Speech. Journal of Linguistics and Language Culture" is publication of the Department of Slavic Studies, Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” in collaboration with Prof. Maxim Mladenov Foundation. The idea of issuing a popular science journal of language culture, which has been carefully thought over for a long time, is related to the work on developing and enhancing Bulgarian language culture and correct use. With its very title the journal carries on to a certain degree the patriotic work of the eminent Bulgarian linguists St. Mladenov, A. T.-Balan and B. Tsonev. These linguists together with St. Argirov started publishing Bulgarian Speech Journal in 1912, whose task was to “guide towards orderly and correct speech”. Unfortunately the journal was published for one year only. Without being a direct successor of the aforesaid journal, the first issue of Bulgarian Speech Journal came into being in 1995. The journal is governed by the idea that taking care of enhancing language culture cannot be a campaign issue. It needs to have a permanent nature and to become an obligation of educationalists, teachers and professors and any eminent figures in the area of culture and education. In line with the concept and tasks of the journal, the publication is divided into separate headings (or sections), which guide readers and authors through the subject matter of the published research. The journal highlights particularly research on the relation between language and speech for which the following headings/sections have been introduced: Language and Style, Language and Rules, Language Culture and Education, Bulgarian Vocabulary, etc. The idea to present the connection between language and the history and culture of its speakers (users) is reflected in the headings: Language and Society, Ethnic Culture and Speech, From the History of Bulgarian Language, Bulgarian Language and its Dialects. The publications in Prominent Names in Bulgarian Science and Culture focus on the tradition and historiography of Bulgarian linguistics, which provide information on anniversaries of Bulgarian and foreign scholars, who have contributed to the development of Bulgarian linguistics. Anniversary publications dedicated to honored Bulgarian linguists highlight their special contributions to Bulgarian linguistics. Bulgarian Speech Journal reports periodically on scientific events and publishes reviews and annotations of newly published linguistics works. The journal is published three times per year. Since 2010 an editorial board has been established, whose members are esteemed foreign specialists in Bulgarian linguistics. They have a strong interest in the journal and collaborate on its publication.
