Bosnian is a Slavic language that is used predominantly by the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina, including some parts of Serbia (regions which were a part of the former Yugoslavia). This language consists of both Latin and Cyrillic alphabets. The origin of this language dates back to the 10th & 11th Century A.D.
In earlier times, Bosnian was largely written in the Cyrillic script. However, the elite people of Bosnia normally preferred to write in foreign languages such as Arabic, Turkish or Persian and hence the development of this language was stunted due to lack of popular literature. When Bosnia was a part of the erstwhile Yugoslavia, this language was merged with Serbian and Croatian and was called as a Serbo-Croatian language.
The following phrases serve as a ready reckoner for providing insight into the Bosnian language:
|How are you?||---||Kako ste?|
|I'm fine, thank you||---||Ja sam dobro, hvala|
|What is your name?||---||Kako se zovete?|
|My name is ...||---||Zovem se …..|
|Good morning||---||Dobro Jutro|
|Good evening||---||Dobro vece|
|Good day||---||Dobar dan|
|I don’t understand||---||Ne razumijem|
|At the end||---||Na Kraju|
|Over There||---||Preko Puta|
|On to the Right||---||Na Desno|
|On to the Left||---||Na lijevo|
