Croatian – basic information

  • Croatian is a member of the South Slavic subgroup, a branch of the Slavic languages. It originated from Old Church Slavonic, which was a liturgical language at the end of the first millennium. Croatian began to evolve as a separate language from the 15th century, and it came to resemble the present standard in the 19th century. Originally, Croatian was written in the Glagolitic script but then was replaced by the Latin alphabet. Currently, the norms of Croatian are regulated by the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics.
  • The Croatian language is in many ways similar to three other languages of the former Yugoslavia, i.e. Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin (speakers of these languages communicate with one another without any major problems). The differences between Serbian and Croatian occur primarily at the level of lexis, while in terms of syntax and style, these languages exhibit relative similarity. Generally, it is assumed that these two languages are closer to each other than the two principal varieties of English: British English and American English. In Croatian there are three major dialects: Shtokavian, Kajkavian and Chakavian.
  • Croatian is an official language of the European Union.

Interesting facts

  • Being a Slavic language, Croatian has very rich morphology. Nouns and adjectives are declined for seven cases and two numbers. There are three grammatical genders, and as many as seven tenses: present, future I, future II, imperfect/aorist, perfect and pluperfect.
  • The Croatian currency is called the kuna. In Croatian, this word means ‘marten’, the skin of which was used as money in the medieval times. The kuna is subdivided into 100 lipa (‘lime tree’).
  • Croatian is known for long consonant clusters, which are difficult to pronounce. Such words as stvrdnuti (Eng. harden) or smrtno (Eng. mortal) can pose a real challenge even to speakers of other Slavic languages.
  • The longest Croatian word is prijestolonasljednikovica, which in English means ‘heiress to the throne’.
