  Bosnian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The language is used by Bosniaks in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the region of Sandžak (in Serbia and Montenegro) and elsewhere.
The irony of the Bosnian language is that its speakers are, on the level of colloquial idiom, more linguistically homogenous than either Serbs or Croats, but failed, due to historical reasons, to standardize their language in the crucial 19th century.
This distinction and official recognition of the Bosnian language is further acknowledged by signatures of the former presidents of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Alija Izetbegović), Croatia (Franjo Tuđman) and Serbia (Slobodan Milošević).

 Montenegrin language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
On the last census in 2003, 21.53% of the population of Montenegro declared that Montenegrin is their native language, while 63.5% of the population declared that Serbian language is their mother tongue.
However, there are significant differences between the three: while Croatian and Bosnian are standard languages and official languages, there is no accepted standard for Montenegrin and it is not official anywhere (the official language of the Republic of Montenegro is still Serbian), although this is likely to change now Montenegro has regained its independence.
The chief proponent of Montenegrin is Zagreb-educated dr Vojislav Nikčević, professor at the Department of Language and Literature at the University of Montenegro and the head of the Institute for Montenegrin Language in the capital Podgorica.

Special attention is paid to Goranians (population of the area of Gora); the magasine stands for the view that they are originally Bosniaks, although they themselves have a number of diverse interpretations of their own identity.

 languagehat.com: "BOSNIAN" IN NOVI PAZAR.
Introduction of the classes is seen as a victory for the mountainous region's Muslim minority, which argues that the local language was eroded by the education system and bureaucracy in Belgrade, which were dominated by Orthodox Serbs who speak a different dialect with its own accent.
"Language defines the identity of a people," said Zekerija Dugopoljac, the director of education for the Bosnian National Council, the official body that represents Muslim Slavs in Serbia and Montenegro.
But again, I think it's not the name that's offensive, it's the idea that is, namely that the languages in question are essentially the same language (and could easily enough be united in a common literary standard that still allowed for and respected regionalisms).
