The study is devoted to work of Juraj Furdik, an influential and exceptional Slovak linguist. The domain of Furdik's interests was above all word-formation, morphology and contact linguistics. His work can be characterised by quality rather than quantity -his bibliography contains no less than 150 entries. However, more important is the fact that Furdik's writings are remarkable for their deep scientific insight. The paper stresses the importance of J. Furdik in the context of Slovak linguistics.
