The paper deals with Ivo Pranjković’s contribution to the cultivation of standard Croatian. The focus of the analysis is on his criticism of the destabilizing influences on the standard language, exerted on the one hand by the Serbian language policy, and on the other by the more recent domestic radical attempts to reform the codification of standard Croatian. It is emphasized that Pranjković’s major contribution to the language cultivation is his insistence on the rational approach based on the study of contemporary language use.
