This paper deals with theoretical articles on language culture and purism, as well as with practical examples of puristic tendencies in the Volumes 21 to 40 of the periodical Jezik. The standard language autonomy postulate was brought up in Prague Linguistic Circle Papers by the members of Prague school. Bohuslav Havránek is one of the members especially noted for his work in this field. The Prague Linguistic Circle Papers were advocated in Croatian linguistics in great part by Ljudevit Jonke, who is prominent for bringing up the principle of elastic stability of standard language, and Ivan Esih, known for his 10 principles on language purism. Language culture and purism imply one another because language in itself is of puristic nature, and purism is a part of language culture. Accordingly, Esih and Jonke regard purism an inevitable and pragmatic phenomenon. However, they agree that it has to be implemented carefully and not unreservedly in order for a language to be able to develop freely and to be open for new communication needs. The starting point in the analysis of the periodical's articles is an article by Radoslav Katičić O purizmu (on purism). Its publishing represents a methodological boundary in the contemplation of purism and language culture in Croatian language. Purism is often identified with lexical purism because lexical purism is the most widespread phenomenon and accordingly, most articles in the periodical Jezik deal with this kind of purism. Articles analysing practical examples of purism are divided into three parts: anglicisms, terminology and other examples of purism, including neologisms, loanwords passing into general use or words from close languages, such as Serbian language.
