  Serbian language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Serbian language is one of the standard versions of the Štokavian dialect, used primarily in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and by Serbs everywhere.
Standard Serbian is based on Štokavian dialect, and it accepts both ekavian (spoken mostly in Serbia) and ijekavian (spoken in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia) pronunciation.
Two Serbian words that are used in many of the world's languages are vampire and slivovitz (though the etymology and origin of the word vampire is disputed [1], and both words are common in many Slavic languages).

 Cyrillic alphabet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The layout of the alphabet is derived from the early Cyrillic alphabet, itself a derivative of the Glagolitic alphabet, a ninth century uncial cursive usually credited to two brothers from Thessaloniki, Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius.
The theory is supported by the fact that the Cyrillic alphabet almost completely replaced the Glagolitic in northeastern Bulgaria as early as the end of the tenth century, whereas the Ohrid Literary School—where Saint Clement worked—continued to use the Glagolitic until the twelfth century.
The alphabet was disseminated along with the Old Church Slavonic liturgical language, and the alphabet used for modern Church Slavonic language in Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic rites still resembles early Cyrillic.

The Cyrillic alphabet (along with the Latin alphabet, which was adopted in Catholic areas) was reformed by linguists in the 19th century to create a one-to-one correspondence between the language's sounds and letters as well as a one-to-one correspondence between the symbols in the Cyrillic and Latin alphabets.
The Serbian Cyrillic alphabet was revised by Vuk Stefanović Karadžić in the 19th century.
The Croatian Latin alphabet was revised shortly afterwards by Ljudevit Gaj who added five extra symbols to the standard Latin alphabet by borrowing letters from Czech and Polish, and inventing the digraphs "lj", "nj" and ";" for phonemes represented by single letters in the Cyrillic alphabet.
