February 14, 1843; The Day of the Resurrection of the Slovak Language ...

... between 3 and 5 in the afternoon...

Did you know that the 28-year-old Ľudovít Štúr kept his goal of codifying the language of central Slovakia as a standard language a secret? Cultured language spoken in central Slovakia was to replace the then-used language of the West based on the rules of Anton Bernolák, or rather the Czech language.

Just like Roman Kebísek writes in his blog: February 14th 1843 was the first time that Štúr almost conspiratorially shared his thoughts and his intentions with a very tight circle of his friends.
