Bohorič 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, Bohorič set the rules for the first Slovene alphabet, now called the Bohorič alphabet. It was used up to the 1840s, when it was replaced by Gaj's Latin alphabet.
