The Ukrainian Language in the Concept of Russian Scientist of the XIX Century Pyotr Lavrovskii: Polemical Reflections

Bohdan Sokil

The interpretation of the status of the Ukrainian language in relation to other Slavic languages, in particular Russian, presented in the works of Russian scientists of the 19th century attracts the attention of modern linguists and refers to the most important problems of the history of the Ukrainian language and Ukrainian diachronic sociolinguistics. The author analyzes the scientific activity of the Russian linguist Pyotr Lavrovskii. Particular attention is paid to the views of the linguist on the Ukrainian language, its origin and development. The error of the Russian scientist, who defended the idea of the later emergence of the Ukrainian language and its unity with the Russian language until the 13th century is brought to light. Attention is drawn to the groundlessness of the statements of modern linguists who tried to justify the scientific views of Peter Lavrovsky regarding the origin of the Ukrainian language after the invasion of the Tatars. It is accented that Russian official science did not recognize the independence of the Ukrainian language and its differences from Russian. The myth of the common "cradle" of the origin of the Ukrainian and Russian languages has been dispelled. It is emphasized that national self-awareness is formed since childhood.
