Description The main topic discussed in the paper is the conflict of identities between two languages, Greek and Czech, during the period of National Revival, when the Czech scholars tried to connect the Greek lexicum as much as possible with the Slavonic influences, while the Greek scholarly community tried to purify the language from all the Slavonic elements.
