Summary: The phonological system of the Croatian Church Slavonic, the language of Croato-Glagolitic missals, the genitive/accusative syncretism and the categories of gender and animacy, the lexicon of Croato-Glagolitic psalter and the syntax of subordinate clauses have been analysed. The newly discovered fragments of Croato-Glagolitic breviaries of the 14th and 15th centuries have been described. The results have been published in two books, a master's thesis and seven papers. Two monographs and seven papers have been submitted for publication.

Keywords: Croatian Church Slavonic, Croatoglagolitic codices, missal, breviary, psalter, phonology, morphology, lexicon, sentence syntax, morphosyntax, conjunctions, grammatical categories, accusative, genitive, syncretism, gender, animateness, Passion according to Matthew, Pašman fragments, Samobor fragment

Research goals: The goal of the research is an integral description of the system of the Croatian Church Slavonic and the compilation of a grammar or monographs on individual levels of that system as well as monographs, studies or papers on the language of certain Croato-Glagolitic codices and texts or certain linguistic problems. The aim is also to determine various subsystems within Croatian Church Slavonic and differences between certain texts, codices, and groups of codices (northern and southern group). The results will enrich the knowledge of Croatian Church Slavonic and enable a new perspective of the language of Croato-Glagolitic codices. Some results will be very useful for the compilation of the dictionary of the Croatian Church Slavonic which is being written in the Old Church Slavonic Institute in Zagreb. The results of the research are of interest to Paleoslavists, Croatists, Slavists as well as other linguists for the situation in Croatian Church Slavonic is compared to that in (cannonical) Old Church Slavonic, in contemporary Croatian and its dialects as well as in other Slavic languages.
