Blast from the Past: Language Lust

This post pretty much describes my entire thought process today. Basically, I really, really want to study the Serbian language because:

  • I have an interest in the history and politics of the region.
  • I want to travel to Serbia and Croatia.
  • I want to do research with Serbian-language materials.

The only problem is Serbian words often are similar to Russian, but have a different stress pattern, and after spending so much time and money to learn Russian, I really don’t want to confuse my Russian with Serbian.
