Serbo-Croatian, other Balkan speakers

Are there any Serbo-Croatian speakers here?

I'd like to learn more of it, as it is a part of my heritage. For you native or well-versed speakers, how hard is it to learn the language?

I learned it with mother's milk, so it's not hard for me. But there are lots of noun cases to memorize in Serbian (and Czech). Verbs may not be so hard. But some pronunciation is hard (like the sound LJ - slurr those two letters and you get it; Serbs of course have troubles of their own pronouncing TH in English and Q etc). I'd say, a challenging language, but easier than Ancient Greek!

I'd say that leaves a whole lot of room  :D  - most languages are easier that Attic Greek.

How much difference is there between the Serbian and Croatian dialects?  I know the Croats use the Latin alphabet, is there a lot other than that?

Serbo Croatian is basically the same language but it has regional dialects.......depending on where you are from.

I myself am ethnically Macedonian and can always understand the idea of a serbian converstation the gist of it I guess but there is certain regional serbian dialects that I have no clue as to what they are saying.......but I have learned to understand serbo croatian through my serbian/croatian friends.

The languages are all similar Serbian/Croatian/Bulgarian/Macedonian................but there are differences between all of them.
My doctor says I am fine its my other personalities that have the problems.

Think of it this way, the difference is similiar to American English vs Irish English. We are able to understand one another for the most part but lose each other on certain sayings, words and idioms.

Hi, Byz
I am writing from the old country, Belgrade namely. I think there is a Serbian language tutorial somewhere on the net. From the linguistic point of view, difference between Serbian and Croatian is similar to that of Irish and British English. Serbian has different dialects too. Grammar  might be a problem, there are seven cases. The easiest way to learn it is to acquire some knowledge and than practice with native speakers, maybe a church community nearby...

I have a question for anyone who attends a Serbian Orthodox Church. My husband and I wonder how a Serbian service differs from the Russian or Greek services (other than language issues of course). Also, both the Greek and OCA (but especially the OCA)churches are having some trouble with their financial accountability and possible mishandling of funds. Can anyone tell us about the Serbian diocese and if they know them to be upright and honest in the financial handling of parish and diocesan funds? We would like to commit to a church whose hierarchs can be trusted. Don't mean to be disrespectful-just need some info.
Thanks to all.

Sorry,
forgot to mention that my husband is 1/2 Serbian but he doesn't speak it. I personally have a deep burden for the suffering of our Orthodox brothers and sisters there. For our children and grandchildren's sake also we pray for the Serbs-for their strength and safety and that they would find favor with all authority so that they could live in peace. We visited a Serbian priest once a few years ago, and he was nice but the secretary and other serbians were not so friendly. They didn't seem to think we should attend if we didn't speak the language. :'(

I think Serb1389 is best equipped to answer your question.  He is a seminary student whose father is a SOC priest.

From a personal perspective, I have never heard of any financial problems/irregularities within the Church, but to be totally honest, even if they did exist, I wouldn't know of them (as I have no interest in the Church administration).

This was terribly upsetting to read.  I would tell you, whoever said this to you is 100% ignorant and 100% wrong.  Can I ask you where you live?  Maybe I can recommend a good SOC.

About the language...

My parish is predominantly immigrant Serb.  Liturgy is in Slavonic.  After Liturgy all events in the basement hall are 100% Serbian.  Even though I am ethnically Serbian, I am not fluent and I think it is more accurate to say I do not speak "Serbian proper".  Serb1389 likes to call my dialect "village tongue" or some derivative thereof.  ;D 

I primarily speak English at Church and only speak Serbian if I'm talking to an elderly person.  On occasion, my wife and I feel a bit like outsiders, but our priest does a good job at making us feel welcome.  We have a weekly newsletter and he knows to give us ours, in English.  At the end of the day, my reason for being at Liturgy transcends language, so nobody could keep me away with a silly comment (like the one said to you).

I'd remind anyone who has that attitude that you are going to an ORTHODOX CHURCH, not a SERBIAN Church.

In terms of differences... 

It is tough to say.  I am at my 5th Serbian parish (we've moved a lot) and there are some differences between each parish (especially between the ones in Canada and the ones in the USA).  One obvious difference you should be aware of is the celebration of Slava.

If your husband is 1/2 Serb, than he has a Slava.  ONLY in a SOC will you find a Slava celebration.  This is one reason most Serbs don't stray from the SOC and would obviously be a prerequisite for any Orthodox union in North America.

Serbs seem to take a little bit of time to warm up to an 'outsider'.  Once they do, they are some of the most fun, hilarious people around (and this is coming from an Italian  :P ).  I am marrying a 100% Serb (which has helped in the whole welcoming at the Church), but geographically we are a bit apart, so it is easier for me to convert and attend a church closer by for now.  So I am 'on my own' if you will, unless one of us is able to head to the others Church.  The Priests have been amazing and warm, you can see how much they care when they try their best with English even when it is not their mother tongue.  And well, my Serbian reads like a tourist help book "Hello", "Thank you", "Where is the toilet?"  :P.  Don't let some people turn you off the Church by their comments.  Like SouthSerb99 said, it is an Orthodox Church.

I have some information about this, but i'm not at liberty to say online.  If you PM me, i'll let you know what's up. 

We are pretty good about the money, but there are always parishes that have problems.  Some bishops are better than others, etc., etc., etc., so just PM me and i'll talk to you about it in detail, as much as I can. 


Also, for those who are interested, Rosseta Stone is amazing for any language and I highly recomend it.  It can help with pronunciation as well as grammar. 

In terms of dialects, what people have said above is pretty accurate.  There are many dialects with their own nuiances so you just have to get used to them.  Bosnian people tend to put "j" in their words whereas people from central Serbia do not.  Montenegrans have their own tendancies as do people from Krajina (Serbs in Croatia).  Croatians themselves have their own way of speaking, but is so close to Serbian that they just combined it into one language = Serbo-Croatian. 

That's my 2 cents.   ;D ;)

Yet one more thing we have in common! It sounds like my Romanian which my wife describes as 'ca un taran moldovenesc' (like a Moldovan peasant - which is ironic given that were it not for her education, she would be a Moldovan peasant herself). I do pretty much the same as you (with respect to English speaking at church), but one of the ways our priest gets me involved is to have me read Romanian in church - nerve wracking to say the least.

And before anyone says this post is off topic, it isn't completely. Romanian may not be slav but it is a Balkan language (as are Aromanian and Megleno-Romanian).

Hi! I'm a native Serbian speaker FROM the old country, and still IN the old country.  :)

Serbian is difficult. Suffice it to say that I choose to write my papers in English because I'm more secure in it, and it's only a language I started learning at school. I really am a good speaker (and 'writer' :P) of Serbian, it's just so 'slippery' at times, and sometimes you just can't be 100% certain what you wrote/said is correct.

I'm happy to help those who'd still like to learn it!  ;D Just PM me.

My family and I am going to Croatia this summer and I hope to find an orthodox church somewhere. We are supposed to camp in istria near a city named Pula. I would like to ask how you adress an orthodox priest in serbian ( If I am not mistaken most of the orthodox churches in Croatia are serbian but you may correct me if I am wrong :))

The last time i read something about Croatia and orthodoxy ,was that Croatia wants to establish a independent Croatian orthodox church.....For the Croatia orthodox or former Serbs that are considered Croatians now.....
i read about it here on this forum somewhere.....

There is a eastern Catholic Croatian church in Croatia, how big it is not sure.......

Actually most of Croatia is Roman Catholic, and the croatian people are Roman Catholic.  There are actually only a couple of orthodox churches in Croatia, so you really have to look to find an orthodox church there.  http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=Ca0Z4y4faey6FRSorAId-zLTACltezMJ3tJ8RzENWE57Okoycg&q=pravoslavna+crkva+loc:+Pula,+Croatia&aq=&sll=44.835422,13.697205&sspn=0.533669,1.705627&gl=us&ie=UTF8&hq=pravoslavna+crkva&hnear=&ll=45.359865,14.441528&spn=1.05758,3.411255&z=9&iwloc=A&cid=7005098522247345934

This looks like it's the closest orthodox church to where you will be.

Thank you for the link :) I am aware that most of Croatia is catholic and I am not sure if I will even be able to find a church. But if there is an orthodox church in Pula I will will find it ;)

to je dugacka prica.  Ja imam nekoliko problema sa njegovim teologijom. 

Ali, moje PRVO pitanje jeste:  AKO mi se slazamo o njegovoj teologiji, KAKO vi mislite da ce mo mi to preuzmeti?  Meni nije veliko pitanje DALI, ali KAKO!  I ako se dogovorimo da se slazemo, to neznaci da ce mo mi to sve sutra uraditi u crkvi (ja pricam posebno za njegova liturgicka teologija). 

A vi?

Moram da spremim moje beleske, ali u tom radu on ima argumenat da promenimo ecclesiologiju (u stvari, da priznamo ecclesiologiju kako on prestavi) i jos postavi da treba da se promeni liturgija da reflektuje tu ecclesiologiju.  Ja se ne slazem sa tim.  Ja bi ti da tacno gde sve to moze da se nadje ali nemogu sada da nadjem beleske.  Pricace mo posle vaskrsa!

I am part Serb (My mothers side of the family). My great grandparents came from a farming village outside Beograd. I can read and pronounce Serbian better than I can conversationally speak it. I can also write some. I am still learning. I can likewise do the same with Russian which I actually am a bit more proficient at.

Serbian, at least to me is very straight forward. The letters are pronounced as written. I actually prefer Cyrilic to latin. My understanding is that Serbs predominately use Cyrillic while Croats predominately use Latin lettering. Yes, I know there is some crossover.

Learning a little Romanian from our Romanian parishioners and a tiny bit of Albanian. Both by accident but the languages are becoming very interesting!

Does Greek count as a Balkan language? I think most of us (Orthodox) have a little experience with Greek.

Christ is Risen! Indeed he is Risen!
Χριστός Ανέστη! Αληθώς Ανέστη! (Greek)
Христос Воскресе! Воистину Воскресе! (Slavonic)

Forgive me if I made a mistake.
