Here at Drops, we’re excited to announce our newest language. It’s spoken in Bosnia Herzegovina, the country with the tenth highest rate of coffee consumption in the world, one of the last remaining primeval forests in Europe, and home to the only tower in the world to keep lunar time--the Sarajevo Sahat Tower. You can now learn thousands of new words in our latest language addition--Bosnian.
Bosnian, known as босански (bosanski) in the language, is one of the three official languages of Bosnia and Herzegovina along with Croatian and Serbian. The Bosnian language is also officially recognized as Serbia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Kosovo. It’s spoken by about 3 million people and is mutually intelligible with Croatian, Serbian, and Montenegrin.
Like Serbian, Bosnian speakers use both the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets, though Latin is more common in everyday use. Bosnian is also known for having a large number of loanwords from Arabic, Turkish, and Persian in comparison to its Serbian and Croatian counterparts.
And if you’re a grammar nerd, like with both Croatian and Serbian, Bosnian would be a good choice. It has several grammatical features that offer grammar lovers the perfect challenge between its seven grammatical cases, verb aspect, and three genders.
