Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, a Grammar analyzes and clarifies the complex, dynamic language situation in the former Yugoslavia.

Addressing squarely the issues connected with the splintering of Serbo-Croatian into component languages, this volume provides teachers and learners with practical solutions and highlights the differences among the languages as well as the communicative core that they all share.

The first book to cover all three components of the post-Yugoslav linguistic environment, this reference manual features: thorough presentation of the grammar common to Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian, with explication of all the major differences; examples from a broad range of spoken language and literature; new approaches to accent and clitic ordering, two of the most difficult points in BCS grammar; order of grammar presentation in chapters 1-16 keyed to corresponding lessons in ""Bosnian, Croatian, Serbian, a Textbook""; sociolinguistic commentary explicating the cultural and political context within which Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian function and have been defined; and, separate indexes of the grammar and sociolinguistic commentary, and of all words discussed in both.
