Paul Robert Magocsi
The Rusyn language question before 1945

An early version of this essay, with greater emphasis on the period before 1945, was commissioned by a Yale University project on Slavic languages and published under the title, “The Language Question Among the Subcarpathian Rusyns”. The Yale study also appeared under the same title in a booklet with illustrations (Fairview, N.J.: Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center, 1979; reprinted 1987) and in a translation into Vojvodinian Rusyn, “Pitanje jazika medzi podkarpatskima rusinami”, Tvorčosc, X (Novi Sad, 1984), pp. 6-22.
The version that appears hare was originally prepared for an internatiional conference held in Bratislava, January 1995, in conjunction with the announcement of the codification of the Rusyn language in Slovakia. It was first published in the International Journal of the Sociology of Language, No. 120 (Berlin and New York, 1996), pp. 63-84; then in both English and in Slovak (“Rusínska jazyková otázka znova nastolená”) in a volume of proceedings connected with the codification announcement: Paul Robert Magocsi, ed., A New Slavic Language is Born: The Rusyn Literary Language of Slovakia / Zrodil sa nový slovanský jazyk: Rusínsky spisovný jazyk na Slovensku (New York: Columbia University Press / East European Monographs, 1966, pp. 19-47 and 15-40.
