Plant names in Serbo-Croatian

Jump to: navigation, search


Serbo-croatian was the name of a language spoken in former Yugoslavia. It is still used by part of the people. For political reasons, many people now claim that they speak and write different languages, namely Bosnian, Croatian, Serb, and even Montenegrin. We have for example four versions of Wikipedia. This situation is what sociolinguists call a case of Ausbau languages. Apart form the fact that two alphabets are used (Latin and Cyrillic), there are very few differences. As far as plant names are concerned, some local names may be perceived as belonging to one or the other language.
