The Montenegrin language is the aftermath of the break-up of Yugoslavia and the desire to emphasize its separateness from other newly created countries – Macedonia, Serbia or Bosnia and Herzegovina. In fact, it is not much different from other languages ​​spoken by Croats, Bosnians or Serbs. All of them are derived from the old Serbo-Croatian language. Only slightly different from each other.

Montenegrin became the official language of Montenegro in 2007, thanks to the newly adopted constitution. What distinguishes it from Serbian are two additional letters of the alphabet – ś and ź and the two-syllable pronunciation of -ije. Interestingly, the Montenegrin language in Montenegro alone is used by less than 37% of the population, while Serbian less than 43%. Despite this, he is currently taught at ten universities around the world.
