General question, when we apply for "incubating" a language, how and when do we know if we made it in? And aprox. how much time does it take to get an answer? Thanks
you can rely to use public transport, especially buses (they are rally often and zagreb is also not as big as other European cities)...they rarely check if you have card :D .. but yes, I'm also interested in procedures about less popular/not that well known...how are they going to be approved? =) I guess by contacting some "linguists", official guys and so..?
We need English for serbo-croatian(or whatever you call it), a lot of people know english to some extent in these parts and this would help them learn it properly. I think more people would be using English for serbo-croatian, than foreigners using serbo-croatian for english.... Also, if there is any trouble about dialects, accents, pronounciations etc. diferences are really small, you could just choose which one would appear to you, ekavica or ijekavica etc, for exmaple russian has this feature where you can switch between cyrilic and latin scripts for the RUSSIAN words, so it wouldnt be a problem to do something similar with ekavica - ijekavica im sure.
P.S. I`ll also maybe repost this comment in other most popular threads on the subject since they all seem to go dead pretty quick.
I would love Croatian too, my mom is from Bosnia, and she's ethnic Croat. I am fluent in the language, however, my younger siblings are not. They know few words. Its a great idea to add Croatian into our community. The Ex-Yugo diaspora is one of the largest in the entire world too.
