In this treatise we will discuss the linguistic activities in Croatia in the second half of nineteenth century. The subject of study will be the lexicographical work of the Zagreb philological school, with special reference to the work of most prominent employee of the School, Bogoslav Šulek, whose contribution for the Croatian linguistic culture in Croatian-German-Italian dictionary of scientific terminology and German-Croatian dictionary is of great importance. Bogoslav Šulek, native Slovak, had distinguished most of his predecessors as advocate of linguistic purism. At the time, when, mostly like today, foreign words had mostly come to the place that belonged to the Croatian words, journalist, historian and linguist Šulek had offered interesting and quality linguistic solutions. He had been substituting loanwords seeking solutions in Croatian dialects from which he drew material for his dictionaries, as well as borrowing them from Slavic languages such as Slovak, Czech, Slovenian and Russian and creating neologisms. Until these days, on the field of architecture, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, botany, biology, mechanics, philosophy, history, physics and other technical sciences have remained numerous terms in the Croatian language that he shaped.
