Vuk Karadžić

Vuk Karadžić, around 1850 Vuk Stefanović Karadžić (, ; 7 November 17877 February 1864) was a philologist and linguist who was the major reformer of the Serbian language. He deserves, perhaps, for his collections of songs, fairy tales, and riddles, to be called the father of the study of Serbian folklore. He was also the author of the first Serbian dictionary in the new reformed language. In addition, he translated the New Testament into the reformed form of the Serbian spelling and language.

Karadžić held the view that all South Slavs that speak the Shtokavian dialect were Serbs or of Serbian origin and considered all of them to speak the Serbian language. This view is today a matter of dispute among scientists.

He was well known abroad and familiar to Jacob Grimm, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and historian Leopold von Ranke. Karadžić was the primary source for Ranke's ''Die serbische Revolution'' ("The Serbian Revolution"), written in 1829. Provided by Wikipedia
