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.

He is a Serb. That man is a Serb
A Serb, is a Serbian person, Orthodox, and a slav. Serbs have a wonderful country Serbia, full of history, beautiful culture, and wonderful loving people. Serbs are very patriotic, intelligent,brave, and are God's people. They inhabited Bosnia and Hercegovina( which borders Serbia) during the 6th century, and have been living there ever since. During the Ottoman period, Turks invaded Bosnia( Like many other countries, including Serbia) and tortured, raped, and killed the Serbs. They forced them to convert to Islam, and that's why a lot of "Bosnjaks" today have Serb blood in them.Some Serbs also have some Turkish blood, from being raped for 500 years. During this period, Serbs ran from the Turks, and inhabited a big part of Croatia, called Krajina. These three countries are the main ones inhabited by Serbs, and they are all very special and historical to them. In 1918 Yugoslavia was formed, and these 3 countries, including few others, were joined together. In 1990 a horrible civil war broke out in Bosnia and Croatia, and Yugoslavia broek up. Thanks to propoganda, everything was blamed on Serbs. The world has a bad view about them now, but the truth always comes out and history will tell its story later on. The Serbs from Croatia were Ethnically cleansed and there are hardly any left now. The Serbs from Bosnia were alos cleansed out, but thanks to Ratko Mladic, and Radovan Karadzic, there is a Serb Rapublik which saved and Protected the Serbs in Bosnia. Since the war, Serbs...more...

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.
