Montenegrin is a South Slavic language spoken mainly in Montenegro. Montenegrin is a South Slavic language spoken mainly in Montenegro. It began to be considered a separate language after the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s, and particularly since Montenegro became independent in 2006. Montenegrin became the official language of Montenegro in 2007 and Montenegrin orthography was established in 2009. Montenegrin uses both the Latin and the Cyrillic alphabets. Not all Montenegrins agree that the language they speak is Montenegrin, and some still call in Serbian.

The Montenegrin standard is still emerging. Its orthography was established on 10 July 2009 with the addition of two letters to the alphabet, although the grammar and a school curriculum are yet to be approved. Their usage remained controversial and they achieved only limited public acceptance, along with some proposed alternative spellings. They had been used for official documents since 2009, but in February 2017, the Assembly of Montenegro removed them from any type of governmental documentation.

Many literary works of authors from Montenegro provide examples of the local Montenegrin vernacular. The medieval literature was mostly written in Old Church Slavonic, but most of the 19th century works were written in some of the dialects of Montenegro. They include the folk literature collected by Vuk Stefanović Karadžić and other authors, as well as the books of writers from Montenegro such as Petar Petrović Njegoš’s, Marko Miljanov’s and others.
