- Slavica (alphabet)
Slavica is a new
writing systemfor the Serbian and Croatian languages that was proposed by Rajko Igićin his 1987book, "Nova Slovarica", published by Universal from Tuzla. The alphabetis a combination of Latin and Cyrillic alphabets and is intended for people of the former Yugoslavia that speak essentially the same language, but write it in two different writing systems.
The basis of Slavica is 18 Latin letters, with 8 Cyrillic letters used in the cases where the Latin script uses
diacritics and digraphs. Four letters common to both alphabets — "a", "e", "o", and "j" — are also used in this new script. In this way, Slavica follows the principle of one graphemefor one phoneme, a principle that has come out of Cyrillic alphabet.fact|date=March 2008
The new alphabet was tested in 1988 and 1989 by the students of primary school Mate Balota in
Buje, Croatia. It has been especially attractive to the people from Bosnia, Vojvodinaand Istra.fact|date=March 2008 Strong opposition has been noted in these years by the Croatian media. Slavica has been written about both before and after the civil war, in many daily newspapers ( Večernje novosti, Front slobode, Dnevnik, etc.) as well as some other magazines ( American Psychologistin 1999; Pregled, Sarajevo, 2005; Prosvjetna poslanica, Tuzla, in 2006).
