submitted verification final decision
Process-stop.svg This proposal has been rejected.
This decision was taken by the language committee in accordance with the Language proposal policy based on the discussion on this page.

The closing committee member provided the following comment:

This request has been rejected following discussion with the Special projects language subcommittee. Wikis should not be split along political lines, and we encourage Montenegrin editors to collaborate with Serbian editors in a single wiki or, at the very least, to have Montenegrin pages alongside Serbian pages. If political divisions make this difficult, please note that the Wikimedia Foundation's goal is giving every single person free, unbiased access to the sum of all human knowledge, and not information from individual political communities. —{admin} Pathoschild 22:09, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

  11. Node ue 08:07, 29 May 2006 (UTC) Shouldn't it be natural for me to support Montenegrin, as I supported Serbo-Croatian, and even Zlatiborian? Long live Montenegro! I am happy that the Montenegrins are finally prevailing in their long and bloody battle against their evil Serbian oppressors, and I hope the Zlatiborians are soon to follow. Nothing short of full independence can be satisfactory. Now these people will be free to speak their beautiful language without Serbian oppression.

  18. Zastavafan76 As Evergreen Montenegro1 states, if Bosnian and Croatian are apart of Serbian dialect but are considered different launguages, so should Montenegrin. Montenegrin language also has many words pronounced fairly differently than that of serbian language. Overall I say it would be fair game to make a Montenegrin wikipedia. 8 June 2006

  36. Momisan 20:38, 10 August 2006 (UTC) (N) I am a native Montenegrin speaker. Do you Serbs understand Gorski Vijenac? Somehow I don't think so... You all know, if you want to know, that Croats, Bosniaks, Montenegrins and even Serbs, speak ONE language. We all understand each other as Aussies understand Americans and vice versa. We could not agree on the NAME. The best analogy is what happened with Scandinavian Language(s). Danes, Norvegians and Swedes all call the same language with their nation's names. So, if Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks can do it, there is no reason Montenegrins cannot. Enough said.
  37. OutLook 2:24, 13. August 2006. (UTC) (N) I realy don't see a reasonable argument to denie this linguage. As Momisan said is a plent of reasnos, but just will is missing.

Right now, the language is not neither officially proclaimed by the Government of Montenegro, nor it has a standard literary form. I think that, at the moment, we should just wait to see what is going to happen in Montenegro about this matter, and if Montenegrin Government proclaims Montenegrin language and if Montenegrin Academy standardizes it, then this voting will have sense.)

  34. Nikola 05:45, 12 June 2006 (UTC) - since there is no standard Montenegrin language, nor is there even informal agreement about what it is, there is no way to tell if a text is written in Montenegrin, and the same would apply to this encyclopedia.
  35. NeroN_BG 11:48, 12 June 2006 (UTC) - Personally I'm against it however every nation has its own right to chose its own path etc. Montenegrins in fact should be allowed to express themselves in "Montenegrin" even though it's in fact a Serbian Ijekavian dialect. 65% of all people in Montenegro speak Serbian language, which means Serbs and MOST Montenegrins; about the same share of the population supports SOC. Montenegrins have a right to do whatever they please no matter what we thought about it; as long as Serbian language doesn't evolve into a second class language in the republic (Mon. government has taken a few steps in terms of prosecution of Serbian language). As long as it's beeing done peacefully it's fine with me (even though linguistically it's still one same language).
  36. It has no ISO code, so surely, according to http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Requests_for_new_languages#FAQ, the proposed domain is wrong? I'm opposing because of its similarity to existing languages and the lack of recognition. If Montenegro declares its language as Montenegrin and it were recognised as such, I would support this. --Nikki 18:01, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

  46. I am sympathetic to the movement for statehood but currently do not see strong evidence that Montenegrin has diverged sufficiently from the Serbo-Croatian standard to be considered a different written language (no doubt this will change if the current nation-building program continues). It seems that at times self-reporting by speakers "merely" mean they identify with the "Montenegro" label. A-giâu 16:23, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

  1. I'm generally in favor of "live and let live", but this strucks me as yet another wannabe encyclopedia. There are two active users from Montenegro that I know of on en.wiki and i don't see how they (even if they gather a dozen more) could effectively write anything that would come close to an encyclopedia than to a blog. en:User:Duja, 08:11, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  2. I am sad because I can't oppose from some logical reasons. Namely, with SCG parting, Montenegrin nationalists have chosen to make a move and I respect that. It is a fact that a number of people declare that they speak Montenegrin and that should be respected. However, making the fifth wikipedia based on a, loosely said, similar language, is somewhat disturbing, yet normal. This would, I'm afraid, become the third fork of the Serbian wikipedia. The difference is - it would be in yekavian standard, which we, at sr:, aim to implement to our wikipedia. I was against the existance of sh: wikipedia, but now that the Balkans have turned into a mess, I'd like to see one more language have its own wikipedia, so that we all could be pronounced loonaticks. The truth is that not many Montenegrins speak Montenegrin, and even fewer visit Internet, let alone Wikipedia, so I'm not very afraid of jeopardizing other Wikipedias in favor of this one. --Filip (§) 11:13, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
    Filip this is not a fork form Serbian wikipedia, Montenegro was never had a influence on Serbian wikipedia. No individual or organization was included in any organization related to wikipedia. As you can see that "forked" wikipedias (croatian, bosnian) have quite different views on lot of topics. That could mean something.I see your concern about other wikipedias, but not that much about Montenegrian wikipedia? Why? Is the purpose of wikipedia to be world wide encyclopedia, or just world narrow encyclopedia? --Ego and his own 13:13, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
  3. I would agree, since those in the know (millosh, I guess) say this is the way new languages are standardised - people decide, for whatever reason, that their language is unique. Fine with me. However, I'm not sure proposer is that much interested in making an encyclopedia as he/she is in pushing his/her's own political agenda. And of those that voted 'yes' only the proposer is native speaker. However, if more native speakers should be interested in creating a wikipedia, I would gladly vote yes. So I'm neutral for now. --Бране Јовановић 09:45, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

  7. Show me 5 users which use Montenegrin in everyday life and are eager to start writing wikipedia of their own, and you'll get my support vote along my own "live and let live" philosophy (I developed it separately from Duja ;-) ). People should have their own wikipedia if they're gonna write it (that's why I voted for keeping of serbo-croatian version). But, to write an encyclopaedia in Montenegrin, we need people who speak Montenegrin. --Dijxtra14:22, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
    I would imagine that not only these five people need to "use Montenegrin in everyday life" - there are plenty of people who say they do - at issue here is also whether what they speak is AT ALL different from Serbian. 22% of Montenegro's population declare Montenegrin language as their native tongue, but the fact is that what they speak and write is, well, standardized Serbian language, letter for letter, word for word. Come on, let the user "Crna Gora" demonstrate to us ten sentences of his choice in "everyday Montenegrin language" and mark all the places where they are not standardized Serbian. --Dzordzm 02:53, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

  10. I don't know about the state of the montenegrin langauge. Someone has said "A language is a dialect with its own army and navy", not a very scientific definition. My definition is that if it has its own written language standard, especially on Wikipedia which has writing, not speech, then it is a language on its own. But there must be some difference, not as small as British/American/Australian. (I have seen several spell corrections on english-WP, when it was actually correct but another country variety). Norwegian "Nynorsk" has its own wiki, since it is standardised and has a much different spelling, although spoken it is just a dialect of Norwegian (same country, and similar vocabulary). Summary: Start Montenegrin if it has its own established written language. It seems not. en:User:BIL 85.119.130.132 14:16, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Montenegrin is considered the main language of Montenegro by many Montenegrins in Montenegro, and many Montenegrins consider this as their primary language even though some people, even Serbs, consider this language as a dialect of Serbian. The Montenegrin language is spoken with an Ijekavian-Shtokavian dialect.
  • Boris Malagurski said that there are just 3 or 4 words different words from Serbian. I see that two words different just by loking en:Template:User_sr-4 and en:Template:User_cg-4. So, what are the other 2 ;)?
Lemme jsut say here that the userboxes are simply phrased differently. This is also done on product packaging with Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian to make the text purposely different. --Estavisti 16:02, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
Montenegrin template uses synonim "zboriti" instead of "govoriti", but in reality "zboriti" is much less used in Montenegro. [1] vs [2]. Nikola 05:52, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Also, I must say that I soeak croatian, and I can understand Serbian, but I ave some prolem understanding montenegrin. It is quite a different from serbian. --Ante Perkovic 08:55, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Funny, on your user page, Ante Perkovic, you say you speak Serbian and Montengerin equally well:)) C-c-c-c
You'll be surprised how much more can you understand a speaker from Šumadija then a say, Niš-speaker. HRE
  • My opinion is that absolutely every country must have its own language. Infact, bosnian, serbian and croatian r very similar languages too. That is the reason more why i support montenegrin (crnogorski) language. that is also case in wikipedia. Opponents of this question really think that montenegrin people who supported the independence will edit wikipedia in serbian??? As, bormalagurski said, serb and montenegrin differ in few words. But i dont think montenegrin people would like to expand something serbian. Am i right? West Brom 4ever

P.S. I am from Croatia, so i wrote this from NPOV.

Well, every country should have its own language, I agree - but not every does, and we can't change taht on an Encyclopedia, arguing that. ;) HRE
Wasn't Croatia at a war with Serbia recently? So, when it comes to Serbian-Montenegrin affairs, you consider yourself NPOV? I highly doubt it. Montenegrin is not officially a language, when it is, we can talk about Montenegrin Wikipedia, but still, 3 words is not worth the trouble... --Rakija 18:35, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • The Internet page of the government of Montenegro has a short description of the country, which says that the official language is Montenegrin. --Zmaj 13:53, 26 May 2006 (UTC) Update: I just noticed there is an English version of the same page, which says that the official language is Montenegrin - Serbian. Interesting. As Italians say, traduttore - traditore, or "to translate is to betray"... --Zmaj 13:57, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
But, what does that have to do with anything? HRE
I also noticed that page, but I think you forgot to mention that it's the page of the government of Milo Djukanovic, the pro-independence leader of Montenegro. The official website of the government of Montenegro, approved by the international community (unlike the Milo Djukanovic one) is listed below, and it says that Serbian is the official language. Milo's government claims that the official language of Montenegro is Montenegrin, even though in the constitution of Montenegro it says that Serbian is the official language. Who are we going to trust, the constitution, or the website? --Rakija 18:40, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
A language does not have to be in the constitution in order for it to exist. For example, in Brazil you have many Indian languages that are not listed in the constitution, but nevertheless exist and are not codified. Similarly, in Montenegro almost a quarter of the population speak Montenegrin, like it or not. The constitution of Serbia says that Kosovo is part of Serbia, but look closer and what do you see? Real life is not inside a constitution. Furthermore, the constitution is not a tool for recognizing languages, it only sets an official language.--Montenegrins 13:03, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
Thats where you're wrong. Montenegrins claim that they're language is different from Serbian, but they admit that there are no more than 3 words that are different, words that can ALSO be used in Serbian (which makes you think doesn't it). Also, Montenegrin is not internationally recognized by any country in the world, it is not even in the constitution of Montenegro, therefore Montenegrin is not recognized by Montenegro. If you want to talk about looking closer at things, look who voted to support the Montenegrin Wikipedia - mostly Albanians and Croats. Do you honestly think they're doing this for their love of Montenegro, or maybe their hate of Serbs, the people that they were at war with only a few years ago. Seriously, grow up. --Boris Malagurski 02:38, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
Montenegrin is different from Serbian. Why?, because Serbian comes in two varieties, Ijekavian and Ekavian, unlike Montenegrin, which comes in one variety, Ijekavian. On Serbian Wikipedia, it always starts in Cyrillic and I was told to post on only Cyrillic. Also, basically, whenever i click the latinized Ijekavian script, the article comes up in latin script but still in ekavian. So, since Montenegrin is only Ijekavian, it would be easier to see it in both cyrillic and latin. Besides, Montenegro is changing its constitution, so it is very likely that Montenegrin will become the official language of Montenegro. CrnaGora 19:10, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Nidžo, before you comment, read the entire conversation, Oppose comments and Support comments alike. By the end of the year, Serbian Wikipedia will have the Ijekavian-Ekavian transformation program up and running, and it would be better to turn your efforts on helping with that, instead of starting a new Wikipedia, which will take years to achieve what we'll do in months. Serbian Wikipedia at the moment allows you to see a text in cyrillic and latin, and will, by the end of the year, have Ijekavian as well as Ekavian dialects at the click of a button. Doesn't that sound more simple that starting a new Wikipedia so you can change 3 words that probably occur in only about a 100 articles? The reason you're giving is not a valid one, as Serbian Wikipedia has allowed maximum flexibility and freedom for Ijekavian-speaking people (also, the cyrillic-posting policy has changed, you can now post on latin too :-)) --Boris Malagurski 00:55, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
Ok if you say that Boris, well then, how is sr.wikipedia supposed to format ekavian text into ijekavian and vice-versa? Tried that, doesn't even work. Also, why was I told that I'm only allowed to post articles in cyrillic? Explain that. CrnaGora 05:13, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
I will gladly explain your concerns. The official policy of the Serbian Wikipedia was to post articles in cyrillic untill the "cyrillic to latin and vice versa" program was introduced early this year. Now, users can choose which language they want to view, and we didn't want to make a mess of cyrillic and latin articles before we could allow users to view them in one particular alphabet. Now, you can post in latin as well as cyrillic, ekavian, as well es ijekavian. The "ekavian to ijekavian and vice versa" program has been set-up, but still doesn't work, because we are in the process of making a list of all the words that differ (reka into rijeka, pesma into pjesma), and when the list is finished (probably by the end of the year), all articles will have the option of viewing them in either of the dialects at the click of the mouse. We have worked a lot on it, and are very proud of our achievements so far, and hope that everything will go well for the second part of the program. Convinced, CrnaGora? --Boris Malagurski 05:37, 28 May 2006 (UTC)
How can I be convinced? I was on Serbian Wikipedia today (May 29th) and yet none of the articles I visited had ijekavian words, all ekavian. Besides Boris, stop trying to convince me, it's just a waste of time. I will never be convinced. Besides, 3 words is enough for a language to differ. Anyways, Montenegro used to have its own different language, until the Serbs changed it. So, I'm never going to be convinced. Besides, I believe that the Montenegrin language will become a reality. CrnaGora 22:29, 29 May 2006 (UTC)
I'm not trying to convince you, I don't really care what you think, I'm just stating that Montenegrin, regardless of wheter it should or should not be a language, is currently --Boris Malagurski 04:38, 3 June 2006 (UTC)
Why not? Montenegrin people have right to use their own language in Wikipedia like Croatians, Bosnians and Serbians do. In former Yugoslavia is used to say 'One state, one language'. The Montenegrin Constitution will be changed and the official language will be Montenegrin without doubt. That is a reason for the creation of the Crnogorska Wikipedia! --Skafa 04 Jun 2006
You people just don't get it, do you... Sure, they have a right to have their own language. But, unlike Croatian, Bosniak and Serb languages, which are internationally recognized, the Montenegrin language is not internationally recognized.
Hence, this is not a discussion on whether Montenegrin should be an official language, the official Constitution of Montenegro says it isn't. We are discussing here on whether we should create a Wikipedia for an unofficial language, declared unofficial even by Montenegro itself. It's not about who deserves what language, I personally believe that they have the right to speak which ever language they want. The fact is that Montenegro delclared Serbian as the official language. What else is there to say? The next person that writes "Montenegrins deserve to have their own language" or "they have the right to speak whatever language they want" is really really stupid, because that is not what we are debating.
When the country of Montenegro says "Montenegrin is our official language" and when the international community says "OK", then I will nominate the creation of the Montenegrin Wikipedia. End of discussion. --Boris Malagurski21:50, 4 June 2006 (UTC)
I want to make clear that I AM NOT AGAINST SERBS AND NOT TO THE PART OF MONTENEGRINS. I understand the mood and the delusion of the Serbs but now Montenegro is independent and if it is independent it will (probably 100%) declare CRNOGORSKI official language of Montenegro and nobody can say that Montenegrin is not a language, because it would have been declared official language of a sovereign state and all the state which will communicate with Montenegro in the language of that country will use MONTENEGRIN. Germany can not say 'we write to Montenegro in Serbian because we think Montenegrin is not a language!' This is the truth and not stupidity... OK, we can wait, but this problem will come back in 1 or 2 months when Montenegro will decide for the new constitution! Remember that today there are people who say Croatian nor Serbian nor Bosnian are a language while Serbo-Croatian is a language. But Serbo-Croatian is not recognized by Croatia nor Serbia nor Bosnia-Herzegovina and nor Montenegro. But a Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia has been created. I think the problem here is more political than practical. The NEW website of Montenegrin government use 'CRNOGORSKI' and not 'SRPSKI' [3]... Skafa
Skafa, we wen't over this. If and when they do proclaim Montenegrin to be official, and if and when the world declares it legal, then the creation of cg wiki WILL BE LEGAL. --Boris Malagurski 04:12, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
Does anyone remember what happened to the Moldavian wikipedia? ;-) en: User: Asterion 22:51, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
Recently the Cantonese wikipedia (zh-yue:) was opened. Ok I am Chinese, but from what I read here the difference between Serbian and Montenegrin is comparable to the difference between written standard Chinese and Cantonese. basically about three words. The Cantonese wikipedia is written in the way people speak, no serious people write that way (except people with political agenda, or colloquial things like chat). If we are going to open a WP for a language/dialect that is not meant to be written in, we might as well open one for Montenegrin. On this page I see there is support for a Singlish WP.. which is a slang that makes you look uneducated in formal circles. In a few years time I bet tehre will be 10 varieties of English WPs, including stuff like hiphop, maybe even 1337. There are already like 30 varieties of basically the same European languages, might as well add one more. If China was not one country there would be 50 Chinese wikipedias too. 203.218.136.155 18:25, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
This is incorrect, as Cantonese differs from Mandarin more than any of the South Slavic languages do from each other (yes, that is including Macedonian and Bulgarian into the fold). There is almost zero mutual intelligibility between spoken Mandarin and Cantonese, in both formal and informal registers. Unlike with the Serbo-Croatian "languages", there are significant differences in grammar between Chinese languages. The fact that the Chinese system of characters allows Standard Written Chinese (based on Mandarin) to be pronounced in any Chinese language does not make Cantonese and Mandarin "the same". Have you even read the [zh-yue.wikipedia.org Cantonese Wikipedia]?----Usuario 00:09, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
Since when can unregistered users vote? --Boris Malagurski 04:07, 10 June 2006 (UTC)
No, Cantonese is very much a language in its own right. It has its own set of distinct dialects. Even though written Cantonese mostly uses standard Chinese characters, a character-reading non-speaker (such as myself) still finds it difficult if not impossible to comprehend. Spoken Cantonese is almost entirely unintelligible to other Sinitic speakers. A-giâu 16:05, 3 September 2006 (UTC)
My argument above is that if "languages" like Montenegrin, Serbian, Croatian, and Bosnian can get their own wikipedias, then Chinese languages such as Min Dong, Min Nan, Wu, Gan, and Hakka should get their own, without question. Consider that these South Slav dialects are so similar to each other that there is 90+% comprehension between speakers. Some of these people even defend their unscientific nationalist claims that these dialects are different languages based on the fact that the word for "bread" is different in the other dialect! This whereas a monolingual Mandarin speaker would have no chance understanding a Min-Dong or Wu-speaker at all, even if they spoke slowly and did not use slang. There are simply too many lexical, grammatical, and phonological differences. Examples of grammatical differences go from the existence/lack of verbal aspects, to different word order and sentence-final particles, etymologically-unrelated personal pronouns, demonstratives, copula, negations, and interrogative pronouns. --Usuario 00:09, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
Montenegro's constiution was written and adopted on 12 October 1992, during the wars in the former Yugoslavia and the rule of Slobodan Milosevic in Belgrade and it excluded more than 22% of citizens who speak Montenegrin language. The Montenegrin leadership back then was totally servile to the idea of Greater Serbia and attempted to repress any idea of the separate Montenegrin identity and language, in a bid to prevent a backlash from Milosevic who was well known for his good neighbourly relations with former Yugoslav republics. Thankfully this has changed. The only official parameter is the FULLY DEMOCRATIC AND TRANSPARENT 2003 census in which 22% of all citizens FREELY declared, for the first time their language. This is official - so we do not have the right to ignore reality. Montenegrins 12:35, 11 June 2006 (UTC)
"it excluded more than 22% of citizens who speak Montenegrin language", this is just a pure lie, anyone can check by looking at the constitution. "The Montenegrin leadership back then was totally servile to the idea of Greater Serbia and attempted to repress any idea of the separate Montenegrin identity and language", but wait, wasn't the Montenegrin leadership elected by the people of Montenegro? So, is it Milosevic's fault now? I don't think so. On a census, I can declare that I speak the Vojvodinic language, because I lived in Vojvodina, Serbia, but that doesn't make "my language" official. Untill a language is accepted by the constitution of the country where the people supposedly speak it AND the international comunity, you simply have no proof it exists. Good luck finding it. --Boris Malagurski 21:06, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

If somebody speaks Montenegrin (politically correct: thinks its mothertongue is Montenegrin) can create the test wikipedia in Montenegrin! Skafa

The fact of the matter is that CrnaGora who nominated this whole thing doesn't really speak "Montenegrin" at all. He lives in North America, and can barely write a sentence without 10 grammar mistakes. This is all about politics, and CrnaGora's hatred of all Serbs (he even erased my vote, claiming I have left the Wikipedia foundation, which is a white lie, because I only left en wiki and nothing else. He kept reffering to me as his friend and even brother, in an attempt to show that he doesn't hate Serbs, but this move clearly shows the truth). And Montenegrin is not a language, it simply isn't. The proof is there, and it doesn't matter wether it SHOULD be a language, because it isn't, and in Wikipedia, facts and references matter. Thank you. --Boris Malagurski 19:17, 25 June 2006 (UTC)


I am a native Montenegrin speaker. Do you Serbs understand Gorski Vijenac? Somehow I don't think so...Croats, perhaps, Serbs, in your dreams! That is a 100 page book, not three words, my friends. You all know, if you want to know, that Croats, Bosniaks, Montenegrins and even Serbs, speak ONE language. We all understand each other as Aussies understand Americans and vice versa. We could not agree on the NAME. The best analogy is what happened with Scandinavian Language(s). Danes, Norvegians and Swedes all call the same language with their nation's names. So, if Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks can do it, there is no reason Montenegrins cannot. Enough said.--Momisan 20:27, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

And I am a native Serbian speaker and somehow I do understand "Gorski vijenac" very well. Have you, Momisan, read it? If you had, you would know that it begins with "Posveta prahu oca Srbina". Beside, what would you do with a Wikipedia? The language is not standardized yet; when you just try write a single sentence in it, you can't be sure is it actually correct! You don't know whether to write in literary Montenegrin (which is actually Serbian ijekavski, as it is said in the constitution of Montenegro, and which is already quite much used and is welcomed at Serbian Wikipedia) or in spoken Montenegrin (which is not standardized at all). Why don't you open a test Wikipedia in Incubator? I am eager to see that linguistical non-sense of yours. Našta li će to ličiti! Sad se vjerovatno svi Petrovići-Njegoši prevrću u grobu! --George D.

  • Why opposers are making a political question about Montenegrin? There is allways a fact thare is some peaple who be glad to make wikipedia even bigger under their lunguage. I don't see a reasn to push out Montenegrins. Wikipedia is not Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, English, Franch etc. - wikipedia is all that linguage at once. --OutLook
  • Everybody from, Serbian wikipedia oppose…. LOL...--Dzemper 19:22, 16 August 2006 (UTC)
  • This is obvious a political issue and political rhetoric from “grand Serbia” ideology. Montenegro is 1000 years old State who has much to offer to the Wikipedia in historical and cultural aspect as one of oldest countries in Europe who is currently out of sight and this initiative can give Montenegro a chance to participate in World biggest encyclopedia."--Egoand_his_own 16:50, 06 September 2006 (UTC)
    • This is not about countries. It's about the languages. Can you find separate American English and British English Wikipedias? Plus, English Wikipedia interface is American English only, while Serbian Wikipedia offers both Cyrillic and Latin, Ekavian and Ijekavian. Montenegrins are welcomed in Serbian Wikipedia, and free to write in their everyday tongue. Nevertheless, like I already said, I am actually not against Montenegrin Wikipedia, but not now, not at this stage of development. The current literary language of Montenegro is entirely identical with common Serbian Ijekavian, with only two official differences (sjutra and nijesam) and one unofficial (kisjelo). When Montenegrin language becomes officially proclaimed (it is not yet) and when it gets standardized (oh, that's surely not done yet), then you can open a Wikipedia. Or start a test one, right now! I know and you know that you can't do it, because you're asking a Wikipedia in a non-standardized languge... :p At this moment it's impossible to write in "Montenegrin", isn't it? --George D. Bozovic 20:38, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
      • George, your knowledge of non-serbs cultures is even worse then the knowledge about "Gorski vijenac" or English language (this is my favorite: and free to write in their everyday tongue--George D. Bozovic) :) This is not mether of Montenegrin egocentric propagation, which you think it is. sr.wikipedia.org is totaly instrumentalised by "El grande Serb's" ideas and, as such like, it's closed for any facts which is not "Serb's facts". Just like as you are, in your comments. --OutLook 21:35, 21. September 2006 (UTC)
        • That is not true. Serbian Wikipedia is much more NPOV than, for example, Croatian, Bosnian or Albanian Wikipedias. Perhaps I have no idea about English language and grammar, but do you speak Serbian? If you don't, how can you know that Serbian Wikipedia is totaly instrumentalised by "El grande Serb's" ideas? And do you speak Montenegrin? I have said many times by now that I am generally not against Montenegrin Wikipedia. The language is just not standardized yet. You cannot write in a non-standardized language. I have only tried to give the proponents of Montenegrin Wikipedia an advice to wait until their linguists (if any) finally standardize Montenegrin language. And if you find closeness for any facts which is not "Serb's facts" in this, then the problem is with you, not with me or the Serbian Wikipedia. --George D. Bozovic 12:25, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Who ever is ADMIN should understand basic principle on this matters that people from Montenegro should be allowed to vote and not people from other Countries. It looks like same if approval for the French Wikipedia should be obtained by Germans or British. This is absolute fars in the approach and rules, whoever makes them. My vote for Montenegro was deleted twice and then reinstated by hackers that you support. Mr. Paunovic should take care of his Serbian edition or his “Vlasi” edition and leave Montnegro to people from Montenegro. If there is any reasonable Admin into Wikipedia please reconsider your approach without stupidity of the Serbian school which we already witnessed during Montenegrin referendum. Same approach of negating any cultural base of the surrounding nations/ Croats, Bosnians, Macedonians/ was seen in the Balkans in the past and this is just déjà vu to all of us. Serbian propaganda kitchen of secret police is working again. Guys like Cavlic, Outlook, Ego are professional who are doing things in the best interest of Montenegro and there is no any cheating except misuse by some hackers from Serbian side. We are all ready now to contribute and help write on the Montenegrin site of Wikipedia as we were not allowed up to now. Thank you for your helpLadyDaytona 01:25, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Well, most of Montenegrin user's votes are sockpuppet votes, as proven by Checkuser. Still think they're real people? --Paunović 03:39, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
How is it not true? Go to the their user pages, they are mostly not Montenegrans. In fact I went to all of their user pages, this is the result: 7 Montenegrans, 7 Croatians, 3 Albanians and the rest either are from somewhere in Europe or don't even have a user page! I would like to note that I am being very forgiving in accepting most of the aboe Montenegrans as they simply put I am Montenegran and put not proof (ie. Where they were born or anything). This has gone far enough, Wikipedia is not a place to spread propaganda and this vote is just that --Aradic 03:38, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Mr. Paunovic you have no right to talk about truth and manipulations. You deleted my vote twice before and then as we can see manipulate timing of responses and put text wherever wants. You just showed that you hate Montenegro and any free expression whatsoever, This is becoming pathological and you “troll”. ADMIN this is the reason why we do not want this kind of individues to control and admin and limit any free expressions. This products of the Comunist regime would like only to impose its own will on other people although do not have any connections with Montenegro whatsoever. LadyDaytona 05:18, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Mr. Aradic obviously you do not understand that Montenegro is multiethnic Country and multi religious and your limited approach is unacceptable to the modern society. Maybe you should go back to the dark ages of middle ages. All of us from Montengro love our culture and our multi ethnicity and would like to contribute to Montenegrin Wikipeadia.. Thank you.LadyDaytona 05:24, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Haha, this is very humorous, I am limiting your free expression? Go make an account on sr wiki and edit that Wikipedia in Serbian language, the official language of Montenegro.
If there's a Montenegro, that doesn't mean that there's a Montenegrin language. Austrians speak German, Americans speak English, Moldovans speak Romanian,... This is why there will NEVER be a Montenegrin wikipedia, because the official language of Montenegro was, is, and always will be Serbian language. --Paunović 05:35, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
By the way, we have a lot of Montenegrins on Serbian Wikipedia, and they're very happy to edit in the official language of Montenegro - Serbian with ijekavian dialect. Yes, sr wiki accepts all official Serbian dialects and alphabets. So, why Montenegro wiki? Duplicating the articles from sr wiki that are in ijekavian? As you all know, the government in Montenegro is very anti-Serb, and any word containing the word "Serb", even in the language, is something really horrible. And I think everyone's forgetting that Montenegrins are, originally, Serbs. It is only in the 1980s that Montenegrins started feeling like they're different. I can feel like I'm Australian, but it doesn't make me one, now does it... --Paunović 05:38, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Mr. Paunovic you are obviously full of complexes but that is your problem. We in Montenegro know who we are and where are we from, but unfortunately does not look like for you as you are without any roots, so we can not accept fabricated data full of lies and presented by similar characters like you, who do not have any connections with Montenegro whatsoever but imposed on Montenegro by big bullies like Serbians are doing. Belgrade kitchen would like to impose its own culture on us and further continue with imposing its own invented stories on the freedom liking people from Montenegro. For someone like you and to edit Wikipedia would be shame and hope that ADMIN can see that this kind of uncivilized impolite people sick nationalist can not be given access to any contribution to Montenegrin Wikipedia whatsoever. Persons like Mr. Paunovic are the main reason that people do not contribute to the Wikipedia. LadyDaytona 06:03, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I understand things very well and have never been a part of "the dark ages of the middle ages", as such I have no reason to go back to it. My family's roots are from Montenegro so I find it offensive that just because I don't agree with you I am not a Montenegran. Don't take the road some other nations have: "You either agree with everything we say or you are against us". Again I would like to ask you nicely to calm down and refrain from personal attacks, they are very rude. Take the high road and talk civil to other people, it is the least you can do! --Aradic 09:44, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

  • Montenegrin is not the official language of any country, not even Montenegro, as can be seen from the "srpski" (Serbian language) word at the bottom of the official government website here. There is even a discussion on whether the article "Montenegrin language" should be moved to "Montenegrin dialect" on English Wikipedia. It is a dialect, with only 3 or 4 words different from Serbian. The Serbian Wikipedia has recently introduced a system where both ekavian and ijekavian dialects can be used on it, and this makes the Montenegrin Wikipedia obsolete, because it would basically be copied from the Serbian Wikipedia, with a change of only 3 or 4 words. The Serbian Wikipedia also tolerates those 3 or 4 words, as they are sometimes used in Serbian as well. Unlike the Croatian Wikipedia, where Croatian is much different from Serbian, or Bosnian, which is a mixture of the two, Montenegrin is absolutly not a separate language (at least not yet), not recognized internationally, and not fit for Wikipedia. --Boris Malagurski 05:31, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
    • According to new constitution of state of Montenegro, Montenegrin language is official. Proposition of new constitution you can find here --OutLook 20:28, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Wikipedia is not the place for creating new language. Its goal is to truly describe the reality. As Montenegrin is not recognized as language yet, has no ISO code (not even three letter code) and this is not the place to create it. I am happy for Montenegro infependence, but it doesn't mean montenegrin dialect of serbian language became full-value language over night. --Zirland 05:56, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Montenegrin linguists said that Montenegrin language differs from Serbian in EXACTLY THREE WORDS.. If they really want their Wikipedia, maybe they should get it... but I think that it would be a too great waste of resources. -- Obradovic Goran 07:53, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I've got plenty of sympathy for your beautiful country - but not for this unnecessary request. Wikipedia is about information, not about politics. --ARBE0 08:45, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Long live Montenegro! They deserve all the best, and I wish them luck in their newly formed state. However, there are many countries in the world that use languages that are not "original" (Brazil, Austria,...), and I can't understand why would Montenegro want a dialect to be declared a language, when they have a perfectly good language already - Serbian. Nevertheless, my opinion doesn't matter, but the UN and the international comunity's opinion does, and they are clear on the issue - there is no Montenegrin language. --Rakija 18:32, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Do you speak any of Yugoslav(because that should have been the ONLY name if there was any sanity) languages?. Have you ever heard Montenegrin tongue? If you responded 'yes' on both, I wouldn't have to continue at all, it would have been self evident. The sorry fact is that there are less than half a million people who speak Montenegrin, and if you have met them outside their country, they would probably have spoken like their hosts (Croats, Serbs or Bosniaks). It is , however, EXTREMELY hard for a Serb to start to speak Montenegrin dialect, it is that different. The Serbs are repeating their lies, some might believe them because there are not many Montenegrins to opose them. I personaly insist on the term "Montenegrin" exactly because Serbs are trying so hard to deny something that cannot be denied. --Momisan10:30, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I don't see clear reasons for creating another Wikipedia based on "ethnic" and "nacionalist" criteria and not on real language structure. I no more understend, what the concept "language" means on former Yugoslav region? People is going to behave out of reason including so-called linguists and language experts of that ethnicities. --Slaven Kosanovic 20:35, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
  • I'd also like to add that the only person that voted Support and speaks this so called "Montenegrin" is CrnaGora, all the others are Croats and Albanians, who clearly won't contribute to the "Montenegrin Wikipedia" if created, and this proves that this has nothing to do with languages, but rather with politics, since Serbs were at war with Croats and Albanians recently. --Boris Malagurski 01:01, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
  • No insults, please. I am a native Montenegrin speaker and you should respect that. --Momisan10:30, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
  • This is a proposal calling for a fifth Wikipedia in what is essentially Serbo-Croatian language. What's more, this is a "language" which even the minority who declare to speak it see as being identical to Serbian and its naming is seen as an expression of political choice (namely independence of Montenegro). Should this wasteful attitude toward Wikimedia resources continue, soon enough every political party, NGO and frustrated quasi-linguist within Serbian lignuistic area will have its own Wikipedia paid for by contributions of unsuspecting Joe. (N.B. 1. While the official naming convention remains irrelevant, the official language in Montenegro is Serbian as per its constitution. 2. USA has declared its independence from England in 1776.) --Dzordzm 04:24, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Montenegrin is as of now a bunch of dialects, with a literary written form being identical to Serbian (the same as the literary language of "Austrian" or "Swiss German" is just plain standard German). It might change in the future, but until then, a separate wiki would be useless. rado 21:41, 27 May 2006 (UTC)
  • While I think that Montenegrin Wikipedia should exist (if Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian exist; and even Serbo-Croatian is reopened (?!)), there is only one person on Wikipedia who consider this language as his native (Crna Gora). All others who voted for opening Montenegrin Wikipedia are Croatian Wikipedians (and me, a Serbian Wikipedian). So, I would like to see five or more Wikipedians who are native speakers of Montenegrin before this Wikipedia would be opened. Until that, User:CrnaGora and others can work on Montenegrin Wikipedia here, on Serbo-Croatian, Serbian or Croatian Wikipedias. --Millosh 13:52, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Since everybody is speaking about some three words that are the only difference between Serbian and Montenegrin, can you please name them? I can remember only two (sjutra and nijesam), but I don't know what is the third one. --George D. Bozovic 01:09, 16 August 2006 (UTC)

  • You are welcome to have a look at Montenegrin cuisine page and count the differences for yourself. Please, be honest and report your findings back here. Regards.--Momisan 11:57, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Well, I haven't found any differences from Serbian there, except for several dialectal phrases, which appear in many other Serbian dialects as well, and except for kiśelo, which obviously threats e here as yat, while in litteral Serbian Ijekavski, Bosnian and Croatian it is kiselo, with no yat here. I believe this is the third difference? Yeah, I expected something bigger... :p --George D. Bozovic 20:50, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, I must say I am a bit dissapointed, I expected more open mind than that. I you don't WANT to see it, noone can probably convince you otherwise. Montenegrin Wikipedia is on the way anyway. Regards, ---Momisan 12:30, 25 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Generally, I am not against a Montenegrin Wikipedia. But not at this fase of Montenegrin language development. The language is not standardized yet on a base of the people's speech ("narodni jezik"). The current literal language used in Monetengro is nothing but ijekavski Serbian with two differences (not even three): sjutra and nijesam (and occasionaly kisjelo, too). Perhaps Montenegrin Wikipedia is on the way, but I recommend you to wait until your linguists finally create that long expected language of yours (e.g. mix up the dialects together :p). --George D.

Cheating by User:Cavlovic

This user User:Cavlovic is real cheater. Look here http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Requests_for_new_languages/cg&diff=prev&oldid=467565 and here http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Requests_for_new_languages/cg&diff=prev&oldid=468166

User:Cholipam added himself several times http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Requests_for_new_languages/cg&diff=next&oldid=468007 But here user:Grcko really executed his adding http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Requests_for_new_languages/cg&diff=next&oldid=468032 --Konrad 18:27, 13 November 2006 (UTC)


I never cheated. Thing is that i pu '#' in front of users so that the automatic nubmering works! People were putting their signatures after eachother, without '#' in front of signature, and their number was not recorded.

Please look harder next time before u accuse someone of something like u did.

Konrad, please act official from now on, and keep your mind straight. This is a vote in which majority decides. I, or Outlook, or Ego and his own, don't have any other accounts here. I know them personally, and we are professionals.--Cavlovic 19:00, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Now he could really find that he added many users several times, or added users that already voted oposite. Everything is clear. You are caught in wrongdoing. You still have chance to do proper action and # put back like it was before your wrongdoing. You had chance to say sorry, but you still act as if you have done something correct. administrators will take proper actions aginst several of you that have organized such cheating on big scale.--Konrad 19:18, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

Outlook, Ego and his own and I installed Wiki, and we know how it works. I know every spet is recorded. I want to see montenegrin language in wikimedia, and by doing something wrong, one vote for montenegrin language would be gone. I don't want that.

I only hope that ADMINs would soon realize what is going on behind this kind of banning and set up by Serbian hackers. Ego is high profile professional who started whole process of bringing awareness about Wikipedia and enlightening his colleagues about possibility to contribute and work on Wikipedia independently which was reason to be attacked by Mr. Paunovic and his group. So far thanks to Mr. Paunovic and similar editors of Serbian Wikipedia we never had chance to contribute in Wikipedia. He is from Serbia and does not have any rights to be Administering Montnegrin Wikipedia as he is neither Montenegrin neither lives in Montenegro but takes right to administer and judge who, what and how work on this Project. He takes freedom to remove my vote couple of times, what is unacceptable everywhere. Everything is based on the political issues and ban on any basic rights of expression for people from Montenegro. Negation of basic principles of the cultural existence outside of the politically sanctioned ideas of the Belgrade secret police. As it happened in the past it is repeating again and again on the same scenario which was used in the Media war in the past against all other former Yugoslav Republics / Croatia, Bosnia, Macedonia/. Because of this I hope that ADMIN would realize all this problems and remove the ban to one of the guys / Ego / who was set up by the malicious style approach, to which Mr. Paunovic is accustomed and which would like to eliminate any freedom in expression outside the boxed ideas that they propose. Thank you for your help and I expect removal of the unjustifiable ban for EGO so he can continue to further contribute unselfishly on Montengro Wikipedia as he is one of the leaders of this project Montenegro Wikipedia.

Mr. Paunovic, you are just showing that you are one sick Serbian nationalist. Your hate against people from Montengro is immeasurable and you should feel ashamed. You are proposing sick ideas of great Serbia and trying to impose your will onto others. And you can not be objectively representing contributor for the making Montenegrin Wikipedia. Hope that you can try to do that in Canada and see what response would get from others. I know who I am and where I am from and I am very proud with that without imposing will onto others. You troll with your friends and family but please keep it for yourself. I hope that ADMIN can see what kind of characters and persons are trying to obstruct and stop creation of Montenegrin Wikipedia LadyDaytona 05:43, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

First of all, personal attacks are not allowed here, you have to learn to be civil, and resolve disputes without attacking the person that's commenting on the issues. I'm not ashamed, I don't think Njegosh was ashamed to call himself a Serb, and neither should you be. I don't think that you're not Montenegrin (because you're probably from Montenegro), but you're ethnically a Serb. And no matter what the political differences between Serbia and Montenegro are, Montenegrins will always be Serbs. Their entire history is Serb, all of their leaders were Serbs, and their people have always spoken Serbian language. This was for centuries and centuries. One government of Milo Djukanovic can't erase that and you know it. --Paunović 06:12, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

I do not know who is personally attacking whom and then cry FOUL. After couple of deletion of my votes, you are talking about being CIVIL. Negating our existence as Montenegrin, as we are no thinking uniformly as you do is blatant and full of lies and this is reason why we are asking to have our own decision making and our own Montenegrin Wikipedia, and not to depend on the communist group controlled by the Serbian secret police. IF ADMIN READ THIS PLEASE PROTECT US FROM THIS FLAGRANT NEGATION OF OUR CULTURAL FREEDOM. People like this with fascistic attitudes can not make decision and understand multicultural community and normal civil discussion. You can not tell me who I am and this is personal. Crying for help from ADMIN and then attacking me personal is so bizarre. It looks like that anybody who is of the Montenegrin national identity has to be attacked. Could you stop attacking me personally and my national history and cultural identity of MONTENEGRO with all the group that you engage from Serbia to write lies and what is the main reason for us to talk here as we are no touching and mixing into your stories and your writings but would like to have opportunity that we can express ourselves without big warmongering communist brother from Belgrade i.e. Foreign country Serbia as we are here talking about MONTENEGRO WIKIPEDIA. With you we do not want any business whatsoever and please take care about Serbian Wikipedia and leave us alone to work on our MONTENEGRO WIKIPEDIA. LadyDaytona 09:52, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Montenegro's Constitution as a Reference

May I suggest that you use Montenegro's constitution as an official reference to determine Montenegro's official language ?
Otherwise, you are making just a big farse out of the so called "neutral point of view" ! --TeslianA (a valid en.wiki user)

According to the Constitution of Montenegro [5] [6], section one, paragraph 9:
"Jezik i pismo
U Crnoj Gori u sluzbenoj upotrebi je srpski jezik ijekavskog izgovora."
Which, when translated into English, means:
"Language and alphabet
In Montenegro, the official language is Serbian of ijekavian dialect"
As we all know, the Serbian language equally accepts the ekavian and ijekavian dialect, which makes it obsolete to create a new language. The constitution is clear: There is no Montenegrin language, and the official language is Serbian. --Paunović 03:54, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

The bright minds behind this farse are just about to be made into poster children of what the Wikipedia and it's "neutral point of view" is definately not about. Destruction clearly seems not to be something that is contained to the fragile borders within Balkans. --TeslianA (a valid en.wiki user)

--edin1 On the other hand, The Constitution of Montenegro, section 1, paragraph 9 states:

"Crna Gora je clanica Savezne Republike Jugoslavije."

which roughly translates to:

"Montenegro is part of Yugoslavia."

And Yugoslavia was not around for at least 3 years. Times are changing, as is the constitution. Today, Montenegro and Serbia are independent countries. Serbia's people have recently voted in favor of the new Constitution of Serbia. Montenegro's institutions are working on the draft version of the new Constitution of Montenegro. Bear in mind also that before introducing the Serbian language as the official language in the constitution (in 1992), the official language was serbo-croatian. --edin1 9:29, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Native speakers

May somone list here native speakers of Montenegrin who are active Wikipedians? --Millosh 15:11, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

Please, use the list for listing yourself. Use comments for comments. The intention of this list is not to say that there are too small native speakers of Montenegrin, but to say that there is enough (5 should be OK) speakers of Montenegrin. On English Wikipedia I saw at least two active Montenegrins which claim that Montenegrin language is their native language. --Millosh 13:00, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

    • Millosh that rule is ridiculous. As the Montenegrin language is new to wikipedia languages this rule just give bad impression on how there is no enough native Montenegrin speakers to maintain and expand wikipedia on their native language.That for sure is not valid measurement for future activity --Ego and his own 05:53, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
    • How can u ecspect to be more native speakers on Metawiki, while cg.wikipedia.org isn't jet started, Millosh? --OutLook 06:08, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

      Millos stop with treats and give proof for your claims. It will be best to call again SysOp to solve this. With all good will I cant find good intention. You just put accusations with no evidence. --Ego and his own 07:53, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
      Why you don't answer the question? On other language requests I didn't see this rule. --Ego and his own 08:39, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

      User:Ego and his own is blocked for 7 days for trolling Meta. --Millosh 10:15, 13 November 2006 (UTC)

I hope this was simple misunderstanding as it would not be right that Milosh as an ADMIN and “what a coincidence”, coming from Serbia insinuate on purpose something that is no truthful, and with only purpose to eliminate Ego as the key guy for the Montenegro Wikipedia Project. Majority of the nicknames that were annulled are known and registered on the Montenegro Forum and all of you can see and ADMIN Nacokantari as well on the following address: //forum.cafemontenegro.com/memberlist.php This are examples: Maveric, XeraX, Blackout, Bologmo, MajoneZ, Medo Je, Hercules, Kambodza, ZaGaRcAniN, Zvoncica, Superman CG, E-One, Bozocv, No LiMiT, Cavlovic,- All nicknames from Montenegro out of total 5 802 and their voting was questioned and deleted, although they are present and registered on Forum Montenegro and IRC.cg.yu. Is there any problem with the rotating IP addresses which cause misunderstanding to you or is hard to make proper distinction. Is it “normal” obvious rejection of voters from Montenegro and direct sabotage of the voting process by the Serbian ADMIN ??? We are new multicultural and multiethnic Country and finally free from Belgrade-Serbian censorship and constant negation of our freedom. Finally no more constant lies of the contributors of Serbian wiki and possibility to make our own WIKIPEDIA without tutoring and “official” truth by Belgrade Communist big brother.. I hope that we would resolve our misunderstanding, as we really would like to contribute. Nobody expected that people who are trained by Serbian government make so much problems and issues. The real purpose of Wikipedia is to represent our way of our Country, as we can not be represented by somebody who does not have any connections with Montenegro and besides have so much hate against Montenegro and our multicultural Country. Thank you for your understanding. LadyDaytona 09:24, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Comments about native speakers
Oh no Millosh you don't understand. How could they be active - all existing Wikipedias were in foreign languages. For example the proposer - he had so much trouble writing in the "foreign" Serbian language. LOL --Dzordzm 02:43, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Some users have speculated that CrnaGora is Albanian and that he or she doesn't actually speak Montenegrin. I'm sorry to bother you, CrnaGora, but can you, please, write something to prove that you are a native speaker? For example, can you write several lines about, let's say, your family and your origins? Montenegrins are famous as a people who take care about their ancestry very much. Each family has a legend about how its family name was created. So, what about your family, CrnaGora? If you choose to share you surname, than you can most easily prove that you are not Albanian. --George D. Bozovic 16:26, 2 September 2006 (UTC)
It is really a shame how you speak about Montenegrins. We are not asking for anything more or less that other people have got so far. There is not less difference between Serbian and Montenegrin language, than there is between Serbian and Bosnian. I don't see a point in Serbian people trying to own everything. We want our own wikimedia so that we can represent our country in the way it should be represented. In a true and honest way. We are no province of Serbia, and you, Serbia, did not give us country. We had it long before you did. I'm really sorry for these comments, and I do not intend to argue here. I'm just trying to point out why we, Montenegrins, want our wikimedia. We have nothing against Serbia. You are closer to us than any other people. We've had the same country for ages. I see no point in you trying to underestimate us. If you want to say something, you can say it without hatred and cinism. Most of us are mature people, so let's keep the talk up to a fine level. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. It was really not my intention. --Cavlovic 01:03, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Just one question: Would you write djevojka or đevojka, posjetiti or pośetiti in a Montenegrin Wikipedia? --Daniel Bunčić (de wiki · talk · contrib.) 10:24, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

According to Montenegrin government institutions, they should write djevojka and posjetiti. --Millosh 18:46, 18 October 2006 (UTC)
Yes, and these same institutions call the language Serbian. According to the chief promoter of a distinct Montenegrin language, Vojislav Nikčević, it should be đevojka and pośetiti. That's why I asked. --Daniel Bunčić (de wiki · talk · contrib.) 05:09, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
Officially its not called Serbian, its called "Maternji jezik" --Ego and his own 13:35, 11 November 2006
