    Very interesting question.

    I'm personally not a fan of reverting of languages to some previous state. Every influence on the language is a part of the history and circumstances. The question is...

    You have the right to know. Make decisions afterwards. Your husband supports you, that's what you need to know, nothing else. Talk to experts about the offspring and risks, it's better than to...

    Could there be any connection between "bardhë" and "albus", the root of the exonym "Albania"? There is some kind of mythical obsession with the white colour in that region, as far as I can google it...

    I can't contribute to this latest discussion but I'm following it with great interest. Nice arguments and quotes of sources from all the participants even when opposed in the last 2 or so days.

    We didn't establish that Serbo-Croatian was ever one language, not in linguistic sense, only politically. The fact is that it's a political effort in the 2nd half of the 20th century with a...

    What did we all have together in Yugoslavia if you are allegedly only 1/8 Serbian? You are hard to follow, you give no facts, just assertions. But keep on provoking, I think that the answers to you...

    Sure, but first, this happened before WWII. A complicated story, too complicated for you. Secondly, my grandfather and other family members were killed by Ustasa. But since you like to google, google...

    Interesting. But I would say, if it was their mother tongue, it can't be incorrect. He was probably a speaker of some other idiom and he took the other one as his reference.

    You see, that's the problem, you're mostly bluffing. You can't even give an example of what you are asserting. But you are persistent.

    No one speaks with an alphabet, it's only a script, not a language. Cyrillic has some short history in Croatia too as well as Glagolitic which is even older. I asked you already, what do you exactly...

    As far as I understand this matter, Serbo-Croatian is a modern construct. None of these languages stem from another. There was a language or a group of very related dialects after the migration of...

    What are you talking about? You're twisting it shamelessly. Neither Croats nor Albanians started the war you mentioned, it was the other way around.
