About the Language
Serbo-Croatian, a pluricentric Slavic language with four standard variants which remain close enough to be considered one language, is the primary language of Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro. The variants are frequently called by the ethnic names Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin. It was an official language of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, and later of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia until its dissolution in 1992. There are an estimated 19 million native speakers worldwide.
