Serbian – basic information

  • The Serbian language 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. Its standard variety was based on the Shtokavian dialect.
  • As Serbian is one of the four varieties of Serbo-Croatian, which is a pluricentric language, it displays a great deal of similarity to the languages spoken in the countries of the former Yugoslavia: Croatian, 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.
  • Serbian is probably the only European language which uses two different alphabets (Cyrillic and Latin) in almost the same proportion. Cyrillic script is preferred in Serbia whereas the Latin alphabet is favored in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as Montenegro.
  • Serbian is regulated by the Board for Standardization of the Serbian Language

Interesting facts

  • Being a Slavic language, Serbian 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 following pairs of examples illustrate lexical differences between Serbian and Croatian: хиљада (hiljada) vs tisuća (Eng. thousand), фабрика (fabrika) vs tvornica (Eng. factory) and музика (muzika) vs glazba (Eng. music).
  • A distinctive feature of Serbian vocabulary is the fact that the names of the months are derived from Latin (like in Bosnian and unlike in Croatian, which uses names of Slavic origin).
  • Serbian is known for long consonant clusters, which are difficult to pronounce Such words as стврднути (stvrdnuti) (Eng. harden) or смртно (smrtno) (Eng. mortally) can pose a real challenge even to speakers of other Slavic languages.
