“I have been sincerely saddened by the news on the death of Professor Milorad Telebak, one of the most famous contemporary Serbian linguists, who dedicated his entire life to the education and language culture of the Serbs.
Determined for Vuk’s language, Professor Telebak defended the Serbian language and script with his knowledge.
The Serbian language was left without an excellent language expert who, in an original and unique way, worked persistently on preserving the correctness and purity of the Serbian language and affirming the language culture of expression.
