Welcome | Dobrodošli[edit]

Welcome to the Novoslovnica course, a book about a pan-Slavic language called Novoslovnica. It was developed in 2014-2015 by a team from different Slavic countries. This book provides relevant [1] information about this language. What are the basic features of Novoslovnica?

  • First, Novoslovnica has its own phonetic system. It corresponds with the alphabet, so there is no question how to pronounce a word.
  • Second, Novoslovnica has a lexical system based on the "purism" thesis. It means, we prefer to use words with Slavic roots rather than international words.
  • Third, Novoslovnica has a simple but rich grammar system that let you create sentences of any level of complexity. This means that Novoslovnica can be used as a literary language of Slavs.
  • Fourth, unlike other pan-Slavic projects, Novoslovnica pretends to be a common language, which could be used in the social, political or cultural international life of Slavs.

The authors of this course hope that you'll enjoy studying this unusual language and use it in your communication with Slavic people.


Here are some topics, or lessons where you can find information about Novoslovnica. The order and the content of these topics will be changed during writing this book, but we hope you'll get all necessary information.
