* The local members of the MMM Scientific and Organising Committees consider the use of the term “Serbo-Croatian”, or any other alternative expression like “neostokavian”, to be rather an ideologically motivated anachronic declaration than an objective consideration in the research of synchronical linguistic phenomena in Serbian and Croatian languages. The appearance of the term Serbo-Croatian originates from the 19th century classification of Slavic languages despite the fact that Croatian and Serbian languages and literatures existed and developed since late middle-ages as and in separate languages. Regardless of this idea of convergence, both languages were officially used and spoken continuously. The term Serbo-Croatian was used as the official name of the state language and imposed linguistic category only from 1921 to 1939, during royal Yugoslav unitary regime and again from 1954 to 1974 during Yugoslav communist regime. Nowadays, Serbian language and Croatian language are separately standardised, used as official languages, and are taught and researched in Serbia and Croatia respectively. Two languages are separately registered in international registers including ISO 639-2/RA codes for languages (srp and hrv).
