For those that would really like to focus on Bosnian, Montenegrin or the Serbian variants, and start with the Cyrillic script, I've started experimenting with making an adaptive site. A lot of work is ahead...

If someone uses Easy Croatian in the PDF version, there are new versions ready for download. Each PDF has now exactly 600 pages. :shock: You can download them, as always, from the Easy Croatian: Introduction.

I've fixed a number of minor errors in the PDF's; if anyone is using my PDF's, please download them again (file names are the same, but inside it's 47a).

I have been wondering for a while why exactly you made such a big book, and even for free. It is a bit of a mammoth project to me...

It's just the website converted to PDF using a Facebook plugin and some C# code I wrote...

I think it will be about 900-1000 pages when done.

Well, what I was trying to say is... I somehow wonder because of what kind of motivation you made all of these efforts. Maybe because of some very big passion about your own language?

not really. I started just with a few simple tables. But I do like linguistics in general, so I thought why not writing down what I know.

(Edit) also, such things are quite common in Croatia. Due to big dialectal diversity, existence of a standard almost nobody speaks etc there are zillion of web pages and FB groups promoting local words, forms, there are shelves of dictionaries of various local vernaculars mostly written by amateurs...

I've created a small vocab test, 40 words out of a larger pool, actually three pools by word frequencies, it also gives some estimates -- probably quite off -- but it can be useful. If you try it several times, you'll get a different set of words each time, but results should be consistent.

Quiz: Vocabulary
