Original scientific paper

Stjepan Babić

 

Summary

In the article the author shows that after the 19th century the Croatian literary language has not been accepting new nouns belonging to the i-inflection (of the type stvar, stvari) if they are not derived by the suffixes -ost, -ad and -ež. In cases when there is a new noun of this category it either changes its gender or gets the suffix -a. Thus for both the native nouns as well as those originating in foreign languages the i-inflection has become unproductive in word formation.
