a Slovene Protestant preacher, teacher and author of the first grammar of Slovene. Bohoric was born in the market town of Reichenburg in the Duchy of Styria (now Brestanica in Slovenia). In 1584, he wrote his most notable work, Articae horulae succisivae (English: Free Winter Hours). The book, written in Latin, was the first grammar of Slovene and the first Slovene normative guide. In this work, Bohoric codified the first Slovene alphabet, now called the Bohori? alphabet. It was used up to the 1840s, when it was replaced by Gaj's Latin alphabet.
