    Overview

    Summary
    The main goal of this thesis is to provide an interdisciplinary assessment of "linguistic cleansing" in present-day Croatia. This is compared with similar phenomena in other new Balkan countries. Nationalistic efforts to create a "pure" Croatian identity and state by re-inventing spoken and written language are framed by an analysis of the political motivations and practices underlying linguistic purification as well as critical historical, geographical, and economic contexts of the recent Balkan conflicts and the zealous nationalism which shape the political manipulation of language. Ideological aspects of foreign discourses about the conflicts are also scrutinized. Finally, because the environment, like the language itself, has also been scarred by the war, I also illustrate ecological and architectural devastation.
