ABSTRACT
When the Resolution on the national language politics programme 2007-2011 was accepted, in Slovene general public some issues came into question about the meaning, existence and use of Slovene language. Despite some bad forecasts the fate of Slovene stilt depends on its speakers and experts that follow its development and if needed also intervene in it. Larger states in the past (for example the Austro-Hungarian Empire) realized that language is not only a means of communication but is also an essence, what we actually exist in. Nowadays we have to be aware of this fact, because the world and languages are globalizing. Slovene has to be maintained in schools, universities, media, at scientific meetings etc. namely not only because of the speech situation, but mostly because of the national awareness and integration. We all like to say, that we are a nation of language or a nation because of the language. What is left, if we lose our language? On the other side we have to be aware that a language is a living organism and is as such developing, growing and should not be obstructed and we should give it a certain freedom, so it would not be limited and intended for itself. More people are learning Slovene all over the world, this information is encouraging and reflects that our Slovene language is interesting, attractive and alive or more alive, and that is why we have to keep it on the right track with the right language planning and especially with the right language politics.
