Ideas about Language and Language Issues in Új Szó Daily Newspaper between 1949 and 1999

My study presents the results of mapping views about language and language issues in the Hungarian daily Új szó published in slovakia. I am attempting to answer the question how language and language issues come up in the newspaper, and how the image of these changed between 1949 and 1999. I divided this time period into ten year periods and collected material from every tenth year. From the material collected this way, i followed the process where the attention in articles was gradually refocused from the “reat socialist camp” on local problems and issues of the Hungarians in (Czecho)Slovakia.
