Facts about Serbian language

Serbian is official language of Serbia and one of the official languages of Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is estimated that there are approximately 12 millions speakers of Serbian worldwide.

Serbian is a part of the Western South Slavic group of the Slavic branch of the Indo-European family. While it is acknowledged that there are differences today in nuance, vocabulary and usage, Bosnian and Croatian are mutually intelligible with Serbian, having all been integrated into single language Serbo-Croat during the era of communist Yugoslavia. As Yugoslavia broke up, the language also mirrored the break up with three languages officially formed according to historical, cultural and political lines.
