Serbo-Croatian no longer exists as a language of the Balkans (Pranjković 2001). Now that there is a separate Bosnia the Bosnians call their variety bosanski and Montenegrins call their variety crnogorski (Carmichael 2002, 236, Greenberg 2004). he situation became even more complicated when Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in 2008. But the complications here are clearly sociopolitical, not linguistic. here are other, less dramatically politically charged examples of how mutually intelligible varieties are considered diferent languages.

Part II, Inherent Variety, addresses the concerns which are factors in language variation (chapters 6–7) and what these might show us about how languages change (chapter 8). Part III, Language and Interaction, is concerned with research on language as cultural behavior. In it we will outline some of the traditions of this study based on ethnography (chapter 9), topics in the ield of pragmatics which overlap into sociolinguistics (chapter 10), and research of a discourse analytical nature (chapter 11).
