- proper n. Serbo-Croatian
- adj. Serbo-Croatian
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I thought this was a bit condescending, conjuring up images of people gratefully expounding your virtues as a dialectic genius (Interestingly, Croatian is actually a dialect of Serbo-Croat/Croato-Serbian, and NOT a language in itself).
The term Serbocroatian and other similar terms: Croatoserbian, Serbo-Croatian, Croato-Serbian, 'Serbian or Croatian', 'Croatian or Serbian' is unacceptable.
Maybe because of the politics, the name Serbo-croatian or Croato-Serbian this language's name should be changed.
