In 1931 the Serbian Royal Academy (Srpska kraljevska akademija) established a Committee for the Collection of Eastern Historical and Literary Sources, which employed scholars like Gligorije Elezović and Fahim Barjaktarević who were sent to archives in Istanbul to investigate Ottoman sources related to Serbian history. Elezović was a scholar from Skopje (then South Serbia) with a prolific record of publishing Ottoman documents, and trained in Albanian and Turkish languages. He compiled and published Rečnik kosovo-metohiskog dijalekta (Dictionary of Kosovo-Metohija dialect) in Belgrade in 1932.
