A short history of the Serbian language
Serbian belongs to the Southern Slavic branch of the Indo-European family of languages. The three main Slavic language groups – Eastern, Western and Southern – developed from the 6th century onwards, with the spread of the Slavic people from Old Poland throughout Eastern Europe.
Serbian is derived from Old Church Slavic, which was spoken by most Slavic people in the 9th to 11th centuries. After this most of the Slavic languages began to differentiate themselves, although Serbian and Croatian did not establish themselves as separate from each other until much later.
The modern Serbian Cyrillic alphabet was devised in 1814, and the standard written form of the language was established in 1850 by a group of Serbian (and Croatian) writers and linguists. This was based on the Shtokavian dialect.
Serbian, Croatian and Montenegrin are largely mutually intelligible languages; they were treated as a single Serbo-Croatian language within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. After the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991, each of the successor countries focused on re-establishing their individual languages as a way of promoting their national identity. Read more

Did you know…
- As well as the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet (devised in 1814), there is also a Serbian Latin alphabet (devised in 1830). Serbian is one of the only standard European languages to use both, with Serbian speakers able to read both scripts equally well.
- In addition to the standard Shtokavian dialect, other main variants include Ijekavian (spoken in Bosina and Herzegovina, Montenegro, south-west Serbia and Croatia), Ekavian and Torlakian (both spoken mostly in Serbia).

Serbia was granted candidate status for the European Union in 2012.
