Extending all over Eastern Europe, the Slavic languages have strong similarities to Russian in both vocabulary and grammar. Bosnian uses the Latin alphabet but it still has close links to other Slavic languages which use the Cyrillic alphabet. There is no definite article in Slavic languages, which means that a noun, say, 'book', could mean just 'book', 'a book' or 'the book'. §Learn Bosnian with uTalk
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Bosnia is believed to be named after the River Bosna. This in turn may be named from the Indo-European word 'bosana' meaning 'water' or from the Indo-European root 'bhog' meaning current.
Bosnian borrows names of months - such as Oktobar and April - from Western European languages.
There’s a Bosnian saying: ‘Do not look where the harvest is plentiful but where the people are kind’.
