The paper considers the SIovak State Language Law (Slovak: Zákon o štátnom jazyku) and examines the feasibility of its implementation in the Croatian context. It argues that, as the Slovak language law is the product of social and linguistic circumstances which are peculiar to Slovakia, its strict implementation in Croatia would produce effects exactly opposite to those intended. It also challenges the common misconception that the Slovak language law's purpose is the promotion of correct language usage; in fact, what the Slovak State Language Law does is regulate the official and public use of languages in the Slovak Republic.
