From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Miro Kačić (Pučišća, Brač, July 7, 1946 — Zagreb, February 6, 2001) was a Croatian linguist.

After finishing primary school in Pučišća and gymnasium in Zagreb, he enrolled to Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Zagreb where he graduated Romance studies (French and Italian language). Since 1977 he works a lector of Croatian language in France where he received his Ph.D. at the University of Aix-en-Provance with a thesis Le theorie des ensembles et l'analyse linguistique ("Set theory and linguistic analysis") in which he developed his theories of algebraic linguistics and which has been published, due to the scientific prominence, at the expense of French government. Since 1988 he works at the Faculty of Philosophy in Zadar where he taught general and French syntax, and applied linguistics. In 1992 he relocated to the Department of linguists of the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb. Since 1996 and up until his death he served as a director of the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics and a professor of general linguistics.

His primary interestes were theoretical and algebraic linguistics and topics related to Croatian studies, in which he gave sociolinguistic analysis of the influence of politics in the development of Slavic studies and pointed out the critical role of politically-motivated linguistics in the creation and maintenance of Serbo-Croatian myth.
