The impact of the Soviet Latinization Ideologies on the Bulgarian Debates of the Interwar Period: the Survey of the magazine «Bălgarska Kniga» (1930). In this article, I briefly discuss the topic of the debate concerning the appropriateness of adopting a Latin-based alphabet for the Bulgarian language, which emerged during the interwar period following the new linguistic and alphabetic policies of the Soviet Union.

This investigation shows that Latinization was seen in an ambivalent way by Bulgarian experts, representing for some a modernization medium, while for others a risk of losing the millenary writing tradition of the country.

Abstract

The impact of the Soviet Latinization Ideologies on the Bulgarian Debates of the Interwar Period: the Survey of the magazine «Bălgarska Kniga» (1930). In this article, I briefly discuss the topic of the debate concerning the appropriateness of adopting a Latin-based alphabet for the Bulgarian language, which emerged during the interwar period following the new linguistic and alphabetic policies of the Soviet Union. To this end, I analyze the post-imperial context that emerged at the end of the First World War, with reference to the literacy ideologies widespread in the broader Eurasian area, and examining the positions of intellectuals and experts that appeared in the survey conducted by the magazine Bălgarska Kniga in 1930. This investigation shows that Latinization was seen in an ambivalent way by Bulgarian experts, representing for some a modernization medium, while for others a risk of losing the millenary writing tradition of the country.
