Terminology as an independent discipline was brought into focus in 1930s. Phonological terms, which are our main target, can be found already in Latin grammars. The paper provides an overview of phonological terms of Czech and Croatian language used in Czech and Croatian grammars of the 19th and 20th century. Czech terminological practice is somewhat better than the Croatian and thanks to that it deals with less problems, what does not mean the problems do not exist. The paper wants to point out the lack of systematization, unnecessary synonymy, ambiguity and imprecision of some terms in Czech and Croatian phonological terminology. In addition, it describes the way the terminology of two languages was developed and the way their development was connected with the socio-political context. In past centuries Czech phonological terminology was not inclined to usage of loan words. Very often they were not even mentioned. Those that would be used usually were not adapted to the Czech language. As the political situation changed, the attitude towards terms also changed. Today the Czech Republic holds a firm position on the international stage and the internationalisms prevail in Czech grammars, except in those concentrated on the lower levels of education. The Croatian language has always aspired to usage of its own terms just as Croatia always aspired to its independence. Long struggle for independence has influenced the Croatian terminology which still favours Croatian terms.
