District Courthouse Klagenfurt | 2007
Je on dober sodnik?/Is he a good judge?
This ›monument‹ is placed in front of the district court in Klagenfurt/Carinthia. Gigant letters (hot type) forming the german word ›Gerichtssprache‹ refer to the history of definition and the distinction between the terms ›Amtssprache‹ (official language, in carinthia german/slovenian) and ›Gerichtssprache‹ (language of the court, only german). To pronunce this german compound noun correct in slovenian language the ›s‹ of ›sprache‹ has a little ›v‹ (caron) on its horizontal surface. (Toledo i Derschei)
