The name "Serb" is ancient. It is non-Slavic in origin and more likely than not original Serbs were overlords of the Slavs. Tha name 'Serb' designates not only the population in the Balkan peninsula but of Lusatia as well. Lusatia, a region in Eastern Germany is inhabited by a nation the Germans call the Wends from which the Greeks derived the word Venedi. The name "Serb" is ibero-caucasian in origin. In comes from the word "Ser" meaning "man", with the "bi" added to make the plural form. The Serbs were part of the Caucasian Race much like the Georgians, Mingrelians, Lezghians, Ingush, and spoke a language simmilar to these peoples. At some point in the history of the Serbs, this Old Serb language stood side by side with the Slavic language in White Serbia (Porphyrogenitus) and likely even in the first 300 years leading up to the formation of the Serb state on the Balkans in the 9th century. Even to this day, the Serb language has at least a third as many words in its vocabulary than other Slavic languages. This is because of the influence of Old Serb and Illyrian as well as Turkish on the Slavic language spoken by Serbs today.
here is an examples of the Old Serb words which exist side by side with Slavic words in the modern Serb language.

Serb..coming form the race serbians..
serbs are south slavs from the peninsula, and jugoslavija & the kingdom of serbs..
Serb is a meaning for one person who comes from the race serbian.. it is a shorcut.. eg: she is a serb ( instead of she is a serbian girl)
Serbs are from the kingdom of serbs, but now form serbia & montenegro.. we serbs are similar to the greeks, russians & macedonians..
We all believe in one thing :: god
we all have the same religion :: ORTHODOX
we all have the same belief :: god (Boga), the virgin mary (bogorodica), jesus (isus), our saints (sveti jovan, sveti sava, sveti vasulije and so on)
we all have the same christmas, eatser :: christmas (Bozic) JANUARY 7TH , easter (uskrus) APRIL but is always 1 week after the Australian EASTER)
Any serb would know this :P
Greeks, russians & macedonians r our orthodox borthers & sisters.. through our religion.. beliefs.. friendships, countires boardering eachother.. we are connected.
I am serbian.. :) my parents are serbs, my dad is a serb.. he was in the war against the croatz.. we won :).. our country was fromaly called YUOGLSAVIJA (yuoglsavia) (kingdom of serbs), it then changed to SERBIJA, now formaly known as SERBIA & MONTENEGRO (srbija i crna gora).
our history goes far back in the 15 bc.. the turks took over our country.. we got it back.. many ciities were ruined.. our food and music changed. but not too much, we still have traditional serbian food and music.. AND our religion stood strong.. ORTHODOX.. we are not the type of people to be pushed around by muslims or any other religion.. we got out country back after a war with the Ottoman Empire and his Ottoman Turks.. KARADJORJE is our hero.. (rather not tell you all the details, but he killed the empire)
We are serbs.. we are not affraid of anything, were religious people, who believe in god, jesus and the virgin mary, we go along our daily lifes praying and believing and having faith in our religious beliefs.
We follow our comandments, and go to church every sunday, before a saint day.. a few days before christmas, a few days before easter.
We are not anoying people, we are not refugee's, we are not non slavic.. we are not catholic.. we are not what you people assume us to be.. why don't you's come to our country.. and see how it is, and see WHAT : our food is, our music, our events, our churches and OUR PEOPLE.
We are not refugee's.
We are serbs from SERBIA & MONTENEGRO..

Someone who hales from Serbia, they also live in bosnia and croatia. They are good at a lot of things like lying, breaking hearts, assasinating arch dukes and making love(once you go serb you never go back). They will stop at nothing to defend their country. They have have extremely good looks and know it and use it to his/ her advantage and it usually works on us poor westerners. A serb doesn't have that much manners either. They are not bad people they just tend to be toss pots (specially the tall males) You are blessed if one crosses your path just be careful. They have only one weakness and that is Kosovo.
That serb is a really obnoxious, but its ok he was brought up that way.

(vb.) To redefine the applicability and borders of law in favour of own prejudice, intentionally going against the jurisdiction of an international community under the banner of patriotism.
"This government does its best to serb the law, thus embracing the demand of the people."

the best race in the world. both world war 1 and 2 were started by the serbs as they are fearless people that stand up for their rights. eg. did not convert to muslim after being conquered by turks, killing the austrian prince, standing up to nazis.
serbs are one of the fairest people in the world. serbs have never fucked anybody over. they dont want anybody elses land because they are happy with what they have. they have been fair to everyone and in the end they got stabbed in the back by the mother fucking croatians with the help of america and so on.

serbs are very attractive people too, especially the women and are very capable as displayed in the 2007 eurovision song contest and in tennis (novak djokovic, ana ivanovic, jelena jankovic etc..)

over all, if you hate serbs, you really must be a dickhead or just very jealous (eg. albanian, croatian...etc..)

i fuck all of the mothers of the serb haters, translation -
jebem vam mater svima ko nas mrze
they said serbs fought like legends, now they say legends fought like serbs

A person who tends to make up events which never happenned in order to manipulate others or to gain something. A pathological liar.
Andy says he slept with her, but it turned out they've never even met - he's a god damn serb!

Apparently, Mr. Francis lied to us and took all the credit. He was a complete serb about this whole situation.

You're just being a serb, I don't believe a word you say!
