Stop me if I remember this incorrectly, since I'm just an ignorant American
who's trying to become less ignorant:

Serbo-Croat is a spoken language which is the same in both Serbia and
Croatia, modulo any regional, dialectal differences, but there are two
written forms of this spoken language, called Serbian and Croatian.  Serbian
uses the Latin alphabet and Croatian uses the Cyrillic alphabet.

Have I got all that straight?
