The Serbian Language

The Serbian language, a South Slavic language, is spoken primarily in Serbia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and Macedonia. About 10 million people worldwide speak Serbian and it is the official language of Serbia. Due to a lot of migration among the Serbian people, there has historiclaly been a lot of movement in the language.

Starting from the 11th century, Serbian was written using the Glagolitic alphabet. Later, it would be replaced by the Cyrillic alphabet. In 1814, the modern Serbian Cyrillic alphabet was created by a Serbian linguist named Vuk Karadzic. In 1830, the Serbian Latin alphabet was made by a Croatian linguist named Ljudevit Gaj. In 1850, Serbian and Croatian writers and linguists came together in order to create a single written form of Serbian.

Today, the Serbian language is written in both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets. They are both recognized by the country on an official matter; however, the Cyrillic alphabet became the government’s official script in 2006. The Cyrillical alphabet is known as Azbuka while the Latin alphabet is known as Abeceda. Most Serbians, at least those who are literate, are able to read and write in both scripts. Additionally, depending on what media company, a network or company will typically choose one script over another. The Serbian language is what is called a synchronic digraphia, which means that the two different alphabets are used at the same time for any word and interchangeably.

The Serbian language has two primary dialects, Shtoktavian and Torlakian. Shtoktavian, which is the more prestigious language of Serbia, is the dialect that Standard Serbian is based on. It is also the main basis for other languages, such as Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin.

In the Serbian language, there are many Greek, Italian, Greek, Hungarian and Turkish words. Serbian continues to take other words from languages as well. Serbian was once the official language of Montenegro and in 2007, the Montenegro language was made the only official language of Montenegro. However, more than half of the people of Montenegro consider Serbian to be their first language. There are also words in English that have Serbian roots, such as “vampire” and “paprika.”

It can be quite beneficial to learn the Serbian language. The Serbians are known to be very popular in literature. They have written several medieval texts from over a thousand years ago. Around the 1700s, poetry was a more popular form of literature in Serbia.
