THE Slavonic languages form one of the groups of the great family of 
Indo-European languages, to which most of the other European languages 
also belong. 

The Slavonic languages fall into three divisions the eastern, western, 
and southern. To the eastern division belongs Russian (Great Russian 
and Little Russian or Ruthenian) ; to the western division, Polish, 
Bohemian, and Lusatian-Wendish (still spoken in parts of Saxony and 
Prussia); and to the southern division, Slovene, Serbo-Croatian, and 

Slovene is spoken by about one and a half million people in the Austrian 
provinces of Istria, Carniola, and Carinthia ; Serbo-Croatian is spoken 
throughout the Austrian province of Dalmatia, the Hungarian provinces 
of Croatia and Slavonia, the joint Austro-Hungarian territories of 
Bosnia and Hercegovina, in the southern parts of the kingdom of Hungary 
(known as the Banat and Badka), throughout the kingdoms of Serbia 
and Montenegro and in parts of Macedonia ; altogether by about nine 
million people. Bulgarian is spoken throughout Bulgaria and in parts 
of Macedonia by about five millions. 

Of these three languages which form the southern division of the 
Slavonic languages, Slovene and Serbo-Croatian are very similar both in 
vocabulary and structure ; on the other hand, Serbo-Croatian and Bul- 
garian, though they contain a large number of words common to both 
languages, are very dissimilar in grammar. 

The Slav nations employ two different alphabets, the Latin and that 
known as the Cyrillic, so-called because its author is assumed to have 
been the Greek missionary St. Cyril, a native of Salonika, who, with his 
brother St. Methodius, was sent by the Church at Constantinople, in the 
ninth century, to convert the Slavs who inhabited the basin of the Danube. 

After the division of the Churches the Slav nations fell into two 
sections, those who had been converted from and owed allegiance to 
Constantinople, and those who stood in a similar position to Rome. The 
first section included the Russians and the Bulgarians, the second the 
Poles, Bohemians, and the Slovenes. 

The Serbo-Croatian people was divided between the two, that part of 
it which lay more to the east and nearer Constantinople, i.e. roughly 
speaking the kingdoms of Serbia and Montenegro and the eastern parts 
of Bosnia and Hercegovina, became incorporated in the Eastern Orthodox 
Church at Constantinople, while that part of it which lay more to the 
west and nearer Rome, that is, roughly speaking, the western parts of 
Bosnia and Hercegovina, Dalmatia, Croatia, and Slavonia, fell under 
the influence of the Western or Roman Church. It thus happened that 
the Serbo-Croatian people, which was ethnically and linguistically one, 
became, from the point of view ot religion and civilization, divided into 




two halves, which came to be differentiated and known under their old 
tribal names of Serbs or Serbians (Srbi) and Croats or Croatians (Hrvati). 

It thus, further, has come about that their language, now generally 
known as Serbo-Croatian, which is essentially one and the same, is written 
in both alphabets, Latin and Cyrillic, while each of the other of the 
Slavonic languages is only written either in Latin or Cyrillic characters. 

The Serbo-Croatian language, written in Latin characters as taught 
in the schools where Roman Catholics predominate, i.e. in the western 
part cf the Serbo-Croatian territory, is called Croatian written in 
Cyrillio characters as taught in the eastern Orthodox half of the Serbo- 
Croatian territory it is called Serbian. That is to say, the same language 
can be written in either alphabet. 

The Cyrillic alphabet has this advantage over the Latin, that it 
represents each sound in the language by one complete letter, while the 
Latin alphabet has recourse to accents placed over certain consonants 
to represent some sounds, and double consonants to represent others. 

But as the Latin alphabet with these additions accurately and scientifi- 
cally represents the sounds of the language, the language can be learnt 
just as well from a book printed in Latin as in Cyrillic characters ; in 
fact, for many who may not have time to learn the Cyrillic characters 
at once, it is more practical to make a first acquaintance with the language 
in the Latin alphabet. 

But it must be remembered that not only are the characters of the two 
alphabets dissimilar, but also their order is largely different ; that of the 
Latin or Croatian alphabet is of course the same as our own, while that 
of the Cyrillic or Serbian alphabet is, with certain modifications owing 
to the introduction of new letters, the same as that of the Greek alphabet, 
on which, indeed, it is modelled. 

Grammars and dictionaries for use in Croatia use the order of the 
Latin alphabet ; those for use in Serbia and Montenegro use the order 
of the Cyrillic alphabet. The present volume, though for reasons of 
immediate utility printed in the Latin or Croatian alphabet, is intended 
for use primarily in the eastern parts of the Serbo-Croatian territory, 
and therefore follows the order of the Serbian or Cyrillic alphabet, which 
is here given in full with its Latin or Croatian equivalents. 


N.B. In Serbian words of more than one syllable the accent never falls 
on the last syllable, while in .words of two or three syllables it 
almost invariably falls on the first.
