This article presents a pioneer study of some elements of Slovak and Bulgarian belonging to various levels in the linguistic structure. Although these are similar in form and meaning in both languages, they differ substantially from the corresponding elements in Czech. The paper claims that some word-formative and lexical elements merit special attention since they show the similarities between Slovak and some Bulgarian dialects, i. e. West Bulgarian and Rupian dialects as the initial study indicates. The paper points to the possibilities for new findings and provides some considerations on the problem of South Slavic elements in the Slovak language as well as the relationships between the Slavic languages in general.
