The Interlingual German-Slovak Parallels in the Law of Succession Terminology of the Trnava Burgher Testaments from the 18th and 19th Centuries. The author focused on the terminology related to German and Slovak testaments from the 18th and 19th centuries, which can be found in the Slovak State archive in Trnava (town in the northern part of the Hungarian Kingdom, more precisely in its part called Upper Hungary which is the present-day Slovakia). The terms’ analysis was descriptive and comparative. The the research analyzes the historical language (gained through archival research), it reflects the legal-historical background and the relation of language and terminology. This research paper is of comparative character and gives evidence of how German language influenced the Slovak language due to interlingual coexistence of these two ethnic groups, dominant in the urban areas of the Upper Hungary region, i.e. the present-day Slovakia.
