Since the nature of the Serbo-Croatian varieties is seen as having political implications, many researchers of Serbo-Croatian have built theories to support either an ideology of togetherness, which glosses over the differences between the standard varieties, or an idology of separateness, which treats the varieties as completely separate languages. The main ideologies of togetherness are the Illyrian Movement, ‘Serbo-Croatism’, ‘Yugoslavism’, and ‘Naški’; examples of ideologies of separateness, which arose in reaction to these, are Silić’s tridialectal “language as a standard”, Brozović’s Central South Slavic “diasystem”, Babić’s “language level”, and Marojević’s “Serbs all and everywhere”. As sociolinguists, we should beware of letting ideologies guide our research.
