  Vuk Stefanović Karadžić - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vuk Stefanović Karadžić (Вук Стефановић Караџић) (November 7, 1787 - February 7, 1864) was a Serb linguist and major reformer of the Serbian language.
His first name "Vuk" means "wolf", which he was given because all his brothers and sisters died of Tuberculosis, leaving him the sole survivor.
Although the above quotation is usually attributed to Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, it is in fact an orthographic principle devised by the German grammarian and philologist Johann Christoph Adelung.

 AIM25: School of Slavonic and East European Studies: Karadzic Collection
In 1813 after a brief period of independence, Serbia was reconquered by the Ottoman Empire and Karadzic was one of many refugees to flee to Vienna.
Karadzic's goal became to make the Serb language spoken by peasants under Turkish rule the literary norm in place of the classical style.
In 1832 Karadzic returned to Vienna after his newly published alphabet was banned by Obrenovic as a result of opposition from the Orthodox Church.

 [Projekat Rastko Gracanica] The Battle of Kosovo (Serbian Epic Poems)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
With the appearance of the collections of Serbian folk poems by Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, the brilliance of the poetry in the Kosovo and related cycles of ballads was affirmed by poets and critics as deeply influential as Goethe, Jacob Grimm, Adam Mickiewicz and Alexander Pushkin.
Karadzic was born in 1787 in a village on the east of the Macva Plain which is itself bordered on the west by the Drina.
Karadzic's description of Curcija's death at the hands of men fighting under Nenadovic, another leader of the revolt who had persuaded Karadjordje that Curcija was guilty of treachery and obtained his superior's permission to have him killed, is as gruesome as anything in the bloodiest of heroic songs.

The reform was based on Vuk Stefanovic-Karadzic's faulty premise that the language of all South Slavs, not only that of the Serbs, Croats, Montenegrins and Bosnians but even that of the Macedonians and Bulgarians, belonged to the same linguistic group - Stokavski.
Everything that did not fit within this "norm" was declared incorrect and non-literate; for example, three sounds unique to the Montenegrin language (that are used in spoken language even today) were left out of this standardization.
Karadzic and later Alexandar Belic and the Serbian Academy recognized Njegos as the greatest poet of the South Slavs.

There he was introduced to Slavic scholarship by Bartholomäus Kopitar, a government official and scholar from Slovenia, and was encouraged to collect poems and folk songs and to write a grammar of the popular Serbian language and a dictionary.
Though there was strong opposition to his reform from the church and from writers, the Serbian government in 1868 finally adopted Karadzic's amended alphabet.
After Karadzic was indicted for war crimes in 1995 and forced to resign, he continued to run the Serb-controlled part of Bosnia and Herzegovina from a mountain hideaway outside the Bosnian capital of Sarajevo.
