The author deals with works of Henrich Bartek on Slovak language that were written in Bartek's exile after 1945. Special attention is paid to the analysis of Bartek's work 'Novy pravopis slovensky' (New Slovak Orthography) written in 1954 in response to the publication of the new Slovak Orthography (Pravidla slovenskeho pravopisu) in 1953. The author of this paper evaluates Bartek's linguistic work in a wider cultural and political context of the second third of 20th century.
