Marko Jesenšek: The Emergence of the Uniform Slovenian Standard Language in the Mid-19th Century
The Slovenian standard language had a dual development. Until the mid-19th century, the Carniolan and the Prekmurje Slovene had a standardized written norm, but a number of regional languages were also spoken. With the Revolutions of 1848 (The Springtime of Nations), the various regional varieties merged into a uniform modern Slovenian language.

Matej Šekli: A Newly Discovered Linguistic Fragment of 12th-century Proto-Slovenian 
A twelfth-century Latin manuscript originating from the Heiligenkreuz Abbey, a Cistercian monastery in the southern part of the Vienna Woods (Wienerwald), contains numerals 1 to 10 written in what was presumably the local Slavic. Genealogically speaking and considering the phonetic characteristics of this language, it is possible to maintain that these entries are an early example of proto-Slovenian.
