Summary: The project Fundamental Croatian Lexicographic Works is a long-term lexicographic and linguistic, scientific as well as Croatian national commitment. The Dictionary of the Croatian Kajkavian Literary Language and Supplements of the Academy Dictionary are fundamental works of Croatian historical lexicography, which together with the Big Academy Dictionary complete the lexicographic treatment of the entire written Croatian literary heritage from the first monuments to the beginning of the contamporary literary language. They are the basis for different specialized historical dictionaries as well as for linguistic and culturological research. The threelingual dictionary of Burgenland Croats is the first integral list of the Burgenland Croatian lexicon and as such the basis for the codification of Burgenland Croatian Literary Language.

Keywords: lexicography, dictionary, Croatian language, Croatian Kajkavian literary language, Burgeland Croatian language, philology, linguistics, semantics, phraseology, terminology, dialectology

Research goals: Fundamental lexicographic works with the entire historical dimension of existance and functioning of a national language are being compiled only once, later to be supplemented with dictionary data from newly discovered sources or sources which have been neglected, i.e. to the entries which have been listed before, new meanings and new data are added. The goal of the research which has for technical and methodological reasons been planned for the period of five years is for each of the listed fundamental lexicographic works to complete a part of the work which of course remains a long-lasting not only lexicographic but also general cultural Croatian obligation. a) Supplements of the Academy Dictionary. Complete revisory and editorial work on the first and second volume (about 1600 type-written double spaced pages), correct the text after the reviews, write the dictionary text into the computer, proofread and do all other necessary tasks to prepare the text for publication. At the same time the collaborators will work on the next volume (800 type-written double spaced pages). This work consists of the following tasks:Checking the data from a card-file, construction of entries, correction of dictionary texts. b) The Dictionary of the Croatian Kajkavian Literary Language. Complete the second and the main revision of the sixth volume (800 type-written doubl spaced pages), correct the text after the rewievs, write the corrections into the computer, prepare for publication. At the same time collaborators will prepare the text for the seventh and eight volume (1600 type-written double spaced pages), supplement the text with new dictionary data, construct entries, revise the text (the first, second and main revision). c) Burgenland Croatian Dictionary. Finish revisions, write the introduction and do all other necessary jobs to submit the text for publication.
