The Croatian language

Croatian is a South Slavic language. It is very closely related to Serbian, Bosnian and Montenegrin. The speakers of these languages can easily communicate among themselves. Therefore, many linguists think that Croatian is not even its own language. They view it as one of the many forms of Serbo-Croatian. Approximately 7 million people worldwide speak Croatian. The language is written with Latin letters. The Croatian alphabet has 30 letters, including a few special symbols. The orthography strictly conforms to the pronunciation of the words. That is also true for words that are borrowed from other languages. The lexical stress of Croatian is melodic. That means that the pitch of the syllables is crucial in the intonation.
