We have heard the signal: the language norms and style assessments taught in the mother tongue class may become a thing of the past and the indispensable and up-to-date “Estonian orthographic dictionary” (ÕS) may no longer be available for language editors and teachers. However, the Ministry and EKI are muddying the waters.
