The paper deals with some actual ideas of Henrich Bartek that concern the questions of language correctness and the borrowing of foreign words. The author confronts the ideas and attitudes of Bartek with the standpoint of the current linguistic critics in Slovakia and he finds out that Bartek´s approach to the questions is constantly reproduced though his texts contain some implicit inspiring questions. These questions are formulated and discussed.
