Stur's grammatical work is here evaluated 1) in respect to the earlier grammatical studies, 2) in respect to the contemporary linguistics, 3) as an important link in the chain of the development of the Slovak linguistic research. Even if his work partly continues the earlier Slovak grammatical tradition, its conception surpasses it, as it already exhibits marks of the then pullulating diachronic comparative linguistics. The focus of Stur's work lies in the codification of the standard Slovak language. It is the fundament sustaining the following development of the language.
