The Croatian language – characteristics and spread

Standard Croatian, like the standard varieties of Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin, is based on the Neo-Štokavian dialect, but has influences from Kajkavian and Čakavian. Croatian is written using the Latin alphabet.

Standard Croatian is very similar to standard Bosnian, Montenegrin and Serbian, and people that speak these languages can easily communicate with each other; many Slavists and sociolinguists, especially outside former Yugoslavia, hold that these are varieties of a common pluricentric language known as Serbo-Croatian.

Croatian is spoken by about seven million people according to estimates. The 2001 census found that 4,265,081 people (96.12% of the population) in Croatia use Croatian as their native language. There are also native Croatian speakers in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Vojvodina, Croatian immigrants from the Yugoslav period in Slovenia, and there is a Croatian diaspora mainly in central and southern Europe (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy), but also in North America (United States, Canada), South America (including Argentina, Chile, Bolivia), and Australia and New Zealand.

Croatian is the official language of Croatia, one of three official languages in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and one of the six official minority languages in Vojvodina in Serbia. Apart from that, Burgenland Croatian is recognised as a regional official language in the Austrian province of Burgenland. However, in contrast to standard Croatian, Burgenland Croatian has its own written language standard mainly based on the Čakavian dialect and its own specialised terminology.
