Vowels in Serbian: Phonetics and Pronunciation

by Magdalena Petrović Jelić

There are only 5 vowels in the Serbian language, just like in Greek, Italian or Spanish. That’s less than in English, French or German!

Vowels are sounds produced without any barrier in mouth. Air flows freely to create sound. The sound is then modulated by moving tongue up or down, closer to or further from the palate, and by changing the shape of lips.

Serbian vowels are pronounced consistently – always the same way. This is how we write them: A, E, I, O, U.
In this video, you will learn how to pronounce them accurately.

You will learn how all five vowels are produced and practice pronouncing them individually and within example words.
