Bosnian language

Bosnian, босански (Bosanski) belongs to the North Slavic group of the Indo-European language family. After the disintegration of Yugoslavia, Serbo-Croat, defined as the common language of Serbs, Croats, Bosnians and Montenegrins, was officially divided into three mutually intelligible languages: Bosnian, Croatian y Serbian

These languages are largely based on political rather than linguistic considerations. Although Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian differ in several respects, these differences do not affect their mutual comprehensibility, due to the fact that they share the same phonetic, grammatical and vocabulary system.

Dialects and variants of Bosnian

The dialectal scheme of Bosnian, as well as that of Serbian and Croatian, is quite complex and is shared by all three languages. The main dialectal difference is based on the pronunciation of the initial consonant in the word "what".

Shtokavian, in turn, has three variants, based on three different pronunciations of the current vowels that replaced the common Slavic long vowel [æ], known as 'jat'.

Who speaks Bosnian?

Standard Bosnian, based on Shtokavian, with Ijekavian pronunciation, is the official language of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It's spoken by about 2 million people in Bosnia. It is also spoken in Serbia, Croatia and Montenegro. The normalization of Bosnian is not complete because scholars do not agree on the differences between Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian.
