Learn Bosnian

Utvidgning över hela Östeuropa så har de slaviska språken starka likheter med ryska i både ordförråd och grammatik. Bosniskan använder det latinska alfabetet, och har fortfarande nära länkar till andra slaviska språk som använder det cyrilliska alfabetet. Det finns ingen bestämd artikel på slaviska språk, vilket betyder att ett substantiv, till exempel "bok", kan betyda enbart "bok", "en bok" eller "boken".
