Abstract: Prežihov Voranc (18931950), born as Lovro Kuhar in Kotje na Koroškem (Slovenia), was a self-taught writer, an author of novels, stories, short stories, sketch stories and travelogues. The short story Samorastniki (The Self-Sown) was published in the 1940 collection with the same title and includes eight short stories. The collection is entitled as the last short story The Self-Sown (Samorastniki), which is also the subject of this analysis. Prežih's style is based on the Slovene standard language, while the Carinthian dialect features are visible in dialect lexis, set expressions and metaphors. The novel Samorastniki intertwines language and style, which is visible in the choice of stylistic and linguistic devices (also dialect lexis) and in the established semantic fields.
