Some facts about the Serbian language
Serbian is a South Slavic language that is mainly spoken in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and Macedonia by about 9-10 million people. It is official in Serbia, and it is the main language of the Serbs.
The Glagolitic script was initially used to write Serbian since the 11th century. It was later replaced by the Cyrillic script, and the modern Serbian Cyrillic script was designed in 1814 by the Serbian linguist Vuk Karadžić, while the Latin Serbian alphabet was invented by the Croatian linguist Ljudevit Gaj in 1830. Serbian is currently written in the Cyrillic and Latin scripts, both of which are officially recognized, although Cyrillic became the official alphabet of the Serbian government in 2006. Literate Serbs are able to read and write their language in both alphabets, and media organizations often choose to use one or the other.
Until the mid-19th century there was no standard written form of Serbian, although there was a lot of literature. In 1850, a group of Serbian and Croatian writers and linguists decided to create a standard written form based on the widely used Štokavian dialect.
The modern Serbian literary standard developed from this written form, which was the official language of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1918 to 1991. After the disintegration of Yugoslavia in 1991, distinct written and spoken languages began to emerge in the different countries that made up the former Yugoslavia.
