A short history of the Croatian language
Croatian is spoken by 5.5 million people living in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the province of Vojvodina in Serbia. It is a Slavic language and was used during the 6th and 7th centuries, when Slavs came to the Balkans. Bulgarian and Macedonian come from East South Slavic and Slovene, Croatian and Serbian come from the West South Slavic group.
The first written texts appeared in the 11th century and were written using the Glagolitic alphabet, which was the first alphabet used for Slavic languages. Eventually, however, it was replaced by the Latin alphabet.
In the past the language was divided between Chakavlan, Kajikavlan and Shtokavian, but during the 17th century the two rulers of Croatia decided to unify the language and call it Croatian. This did not come about however until the 19th century. Up until 1991 it was known as Serbo-Croat, but since then it has been recognised as a separate language.
Speakers of Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian generally understand each other when they speak. Many of the people also speak a second language. The most popular is English, followed by German and then Italian.
There are various dialects in the Croatian language. The most well- known are the Torlakian dialect, Burgenland Croation and Molise Slavic.
