Fill in the gaps with Ć, Č, Đ, DŽ

Imao otac sedam sinova, sedam sva_alica. Sva_ajući se zanemariše sav ku_ni posao i sve im po_e naopako.

Bilo je sebi_nih i r_avih suseda koji su se radovali njihovom sva_anju i njihov nazadak skretali su na svoju korist. Lako je grabiti onde gde nema ko da _uva, kad se _uvari me_u sobom sva_aju.

Videvši da će biti zlo i naopako, otac se veoma zabrinu. Jedanput skupi sinove oko sebe, pa im pokaza sedam prutova povezanih u jedan snop i re_e:

- Koji od vas ovaj snop prelomi, onome _u dati deset dukata.

Sedam sinova pokuša da prelomi snop:probali su ovako i onako. I naposletku svaki re_e da ne može.

A otac će im onda:
- _udim se da ne možete, jer je to sasvim lako.

On odreši uzicu kojom je bio snop vezan, štapi_i se razmakoše i on jedan po jedan prelomi bez po muke.

Sinovi su se nasmejali:
- E, to je lako! Tako bi moglo i nejako dete!

Otac završi:
- Evo vam, deco, slike i prilike vaše. Ne budete li snop, bi_ete sedam prutova koje, kao što ste sami rekli, može slomiti i nejako dete.

Idiot's guide to the Cyrillic alphabet

During my sojourn in Montenegro, I encountered both the use of Latin and Cyrillic versions of the alphabet. This was a great opportunity to pick up and understand more of the Cyrillic alphabet.
Signs for streets & squares were in the Cyrillic alphabet, which is based on the one sound, one letter system. I had a steep learning curve in reading Cyrillic, particularly when I was trying to read the inscriptions on the Partizan memorials for my English compatriots!



Now I am sharing with you, dear blog readers, on how I started to learn the Cyrillic alphabet. I found it easier by breaking down the alphabet into sections. All in all, it took me just over 1 hour to get myself acquainted with the alphabet.

Verb Conjugations in Serbian

Serbian belongs to a group of (highly) flective languages, and as such its verbs have conjugations. This means that you have to pay attention to the suffixes which are added to the stem of the verbs. If you have a dictionary of Serbian, you will notice that infinitive endings are -iti, -ati, -eti, -ti and sometimes -ći. In order to learn conjugations, it is wise to know that the suffixes for each person singular or plural are added to the verb stem (base verb without infinitive endings). For example:
infinitive of the verb 'to love': voleti
verb stem: vol (so, in the photo, you can se 'VOLim' not 'volEm' (which is wrong, but not in all parts of Serbia ... I think if you LOVE someone, whichever language you are using, you cannot be wrong ;)
