Words are the sounds or the skeleton of ideas. They give the sensation and the color to the thoughts of societies. In our study, our aim is to provide an analysis of impact of ideology in daily Bosnian language in Yugoslavia under the impact of communist ideology. In order to reflect and impose something to somewhere, it is very well known that language which goes beyond being letters, words, expressions, sounds of symbols plays a crucial role. It is actually the name of a construction including the reflections of ideas, thoughts, life styles, public affairs formally or informally, sounds of a society etc. So as to make an inevitable part of life in mind, communist ideology was inserted through the daily use of its patterns consciously and/or sub-consciously. Continuous repetition of certain words in movies, books, newspapers, advertisements even in cartoons of the the period, they were made a way of thinking style. This study searches that impact in language from the foundation of Yugoslavia till today.
