Established in 2004, the Institute for Linguistic Studies focuses on the Littoral, Karst (including cross-border areas) and Istrian spaces as a region that is not only linguistically complex but also a historically, ethnically, and nationally important place of contact between Central Europe and the Mediterranean. As a result of this dynamic space, the institute is concerned with the variations on Slovenian language given these various influences.

The institute takes into account the latest linguistic findings, incorporating various aspects of Slovenian language studies, especially in the field of multilingualism, dialectology, the public use of Slovenian language, and teaching Slovenian language in schools throughout the Primorska region.

The institute has conducted among others the following research projects: Slovene Linguistic Impacts on the Italian Dialect of Trieste (2008 to 2011); Dialectal Atlas of Slovene Istria and Karst (concluded in 2009); and The Idea of Nation in the Slovenian Reformation of the 16th Century and its European Context (concluded in 2007).
