Serbian is the sixty-third most spoken language in the world. It counts 12 million native speakers subdivided among Serbia (more than 7 million), Bosnia-Herzegovina (about 2 million), Montenegro (400.000), Croatia (250.000) and other countries of the Balkans. For reasons strictly related to emigration, there are large communities of speakers also in Germany and in the United States (half a million each). Smaller communities lie in Switzerland, Australia and Canada.
It is the official language of Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina and is co-official in Kosovo along with Albanian.

From a linguistic point of view Serbian is strictly related with Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin. The differences between these languages are not evident at all and therefore there is full reciprocal comprehension. In practice, they are standardized variants of the same language which, before the conflict of the Balkans in the early nineties, was indicated with the name "Serbo-Croatian".
The word "Serbo-Croatian" had been used for the most part of the twentieth century to refer to the common language of Serbians and Croatians based on the Shtokavian dialect. With the dismemberment of Yugoslavia and the creation of new countries, the term "Serbo-Croatian" fell out of use.
Serbian constitutes the best possible example of double alphabet. As a matter of fact, in Serbia most of the inhabitants use both the Latin and the Cyrillic alphabets without distinction.
The main dialects of Serbian are the already mentioned Shtokavian and Torlakian.
