Standardization

File:Azbuka BH.svg|1000px|thumb|centre|upright=2|Old Bosnian alphabets: bosančica (top line) and arebica (bottom line), compared with contemporary latinica (middle line)]]Although Bosnians are, at the level of vernacular idiom, linguistically more homogeneous than either Serbians or Croatians, unlike those nations they failed to codify a standard language in the 19th century, with at least two factors being decisive:
  • The Bosnian elite, as closely intertwined with Ottoman life, wrote predominantly in foreign (Turkish, Arabic, Persian) languages.WEB,weblink Collection of printed books in Arabic, Turkish and Persian, 2014-05-16, 2014-05-16, Gazi Husrev-begova biblioteka, Vernacular literature written in Bosnian with the Arebica script was relatively thin and sparse.
  • The Bosnians' national emancipation lagged behind that of the Serbs and Croats, and because denominational rather than cultural or linguistic issues played the pivotal role, a Bosnian language project did not arouse much interest or support amongst the intelligentsia of the time.

The main authors were the polymath, politician and poet Safvet-beg Bašagić and the storyteller Edhem Mulabdić.The modern Bosnian standard took shape in the 1990s and 2000s. Lexically, Islamic-Oriental loanwords are more frequent; phonetically: the phoneme /x/ (letter h) is reinstated in many words as a distinct feature of vernacular Bosniak speech and language tradition; also, there are some changes in grammar, morphology and orthography that reflect the Bosniak pre-World War I literary tradition, mainly that of the Bosniak renaissance at the beginning of the 20th century.

Controversy and recognition

File:Political correctness in Bosnia (14151146675).jpg|thumb|A cigarette warning "Smoking seriously harms you and others around you", ostensibly in three languages. The "Bosnian" and "Croatian" versions are identical and the "Serbian" is a transliterationtransliterationThe name "Bosnian language" is a controversial issue for some Croats and Serbs, who also refer to it as the "Bosniak" language ( / ; {{IPA-sh|bǒʃɲaːtʃkiː|}}). Bosniak linguists however insist that the only legitimate name is "Bosnian" language (), and that that is the name that both Croats and Serbs should use. The controversy arises because the name "Bosnian" may seem to imply that it is the language of all Bosnians, while Bosnian Croats and Serbs reject that designation for their idioms.The language is called Bosnian language in the 1995 Dayton AccordsBOOK, Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, a Grammar: With Sociolinguistic Commentary,weblink Alexander, Ronelle, 2006, Univ of Wisconsin Press, 409, 9780299211936, and is concluded by observers to have received legitimacy and international recognition at the time.BOOK, Language and Identity in the Balkans: Serbo-Croatian and Its Disintegration,weblink Greenberg, Robert D., 2004, Oxford University Press, 136, 9780191514555, The International Organization for Standardization (ISO),WEB,weblink ISO 639-2 Registration Authority, Library of Congress, United States Board on Geographic Names (BGN), and the Permanent Committee on Geographical Names (PCGN) recognize the Bosnian language. Furthermore, the status of the Bosnian language is also recognized by bodies such as the United Nations, UNESCO, and translation and interpreting accreditation agencies,BOOK, Sussex, Roland, The Slavic Languages, 2006, Cambridge University Press, 0-521-22315-6, 76, including internet translation services.Most English-speaking language encyclopedias (Routledge, Glottolog,WEB,weblink Bosnian, Glottolog, Ethnologue,WEB,weblink Bosnian, Ethnologue, etc.)Bernard Comrie (ed.): The World's Major Languages. Second Edition. Routledge, New York/London, 2009 register the language solely as "Bosnian" language. The Library of Congress registered the language as "Bosnian" and gave it an ISO-number. The Slavic language institutes in English-speaking countries offer courses in "Bosnian" or "Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian" language, not in "Bosniak" language (e.g. Columbia,WEB,weblink Spring 2016 Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian W1202 section 001, Columbia University, dead,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20160128123421weblink">weblink 2016-01-28, Cornell,WEB,weblink BCS 1133 – Continuing Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian I – Acalog ACMS™, Cornell University, Chicago,WEB,weblink Courses, University of Chicago, Washington,WEB,weblink Bosnian Croatian Serbian, University of Washington, KansasWEB,weblink Why Study Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian (BCS) with the KU Slavic Department?, University of Kansas, 2012-12-18, ).

Differences between Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian

{{See also|Serbo-Croatian phonology|Serbo-Croatian grammar}}The differences between the Bosnian, Serbian, and Croatian literary standards are minimal. Although Bosnian employs more Turkish, Persian, and Arabic loanwords—commonly called orientalisms—it is very similar to both Serbian and Croatian in its written and spoken form.WEB, Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Or Montenegrin? Or Just 'Our Language'?,weblink Radio Free Europe, "Lexical differences between the ethnic variants are extremely limited, even when compared with those between closely related Slavic languages (such as standard Czech and Slovak, Bulgarian and Macedonian), and grammatical differences are even less pronounced. More importantly, complete understanding between the ethnic variants of the standard language makes translation and second language teaching impossible."BOOK, Šipka, Danko, Danko Sipka, 2019, Lexical layers of identity: words, meaning, and culture in the Slavic languages, New York, Cambridge University Press, 166, 10.1017/9781108685795, 978-953-313-086-6, 2018048005, 1061308790, The Bosnian language, as a new normative register of the Shtokavian dialect, was officially introduced in 1996 with the publication of ' in Sarajevo.
