What is the difference between Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian?
So one day at work i got into chating with a truck driver, and he asks me where im i from, and of course i always have fun with this i asked him what do you think? He says Bosnia. I asked him why do you assume im bosnian? Okay, so i live in iowa which cities like waterloo and des moines have a lot of bosnians. Anyway back to my story i tell him no im Serbian, and he goes well isn't that the same? I get this a lot and i can understand that people don't know and it only takes few mins to educate them a bit on it...if you asked me the diff between chinese, japanese etc i wouldn't know...but i would love for someone to explain it to me in simplest way. So here it is really simple do i don't confuse you. Bosnians are muslims from Bosnia (minus the few serbs that lived in bosnia, they consider themselves bosnians but not muslim). The believe in Alah. Serbians are orthodox. ( like russians). Croatians are Catholic. I don't want to get too into it and confuse you guys this is the simplest way...now the language thing. We can all understand each other, but out of all 3 languages Cro is the most different. Well to get little into it there is no such thing as Bosnian. There is serb-o-croatian and that's it! or it was like that now Croatians are making their own language adding a lot of american words. Every language has some different words but we can always talk among each other. When i hear a Bosnian talk i know it's a bosnian, also goes for serbian or croatian. I can even tell the difference between a Bosnian and Serbian just by looking at them, anways all you need to know is that this are 3 different religions, they can't be the same, some may even get offended if you assume their something else. Im very use to it and i don't mind at all. Hope this helped someone understand...very simple and very good info...i just made you lil smarter :)
