Terminology of the Private Law in the Slovak History

In context with the development of the private law in Slovakia in 20th century the question of its language has been repeatedly opened. The concept of nomenclature of particular institutes changed in history, at most in 1948 - 1991. After all, it caused the terminological heterogeneity in the current Civil Code. The section therefore will be focused on the development of the private law from wider historical perspectives, including the development in pre-modern law.
