Learn more about the Bosnian language
Bosnian is a Slavic language mainly spoken in Bosnia and Herzegovina. About 2.2 million people speak it. Bosnian began to emerge as a distinct language after the disintegration of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. It became one of the official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1994, along with Croatian and Serbian.
Bosnian can be written with the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets. It was formerly written with a version of the Cyrillic alphabet known as Bosnian Cyrillic, from the end of the 10th century.
This alphabet was only used in Bosnia. During the Ottoman period, Bosnian was written with a version of the Arabic alphabet.
The first Bosnian dictionary, a Bosnian-Turkish glossary, written by Muhamed Hevaji Uskufi, dates from 1631.
Bosnian is closely related to Croatian, Serbian and Montenegrin, and its speakers understand each other.
