Are there not also Ekavian and Ijekavian (and also Ikavian) variants
of Croatian? (Though I don't know to what extent they are written.)

I wonder whether it might not be better to either omit a language
prefix or to provide for additional prefixes such as "hr", "sh",
and/or "bs", and to modify the description so that it is not
restricted to Serbian only.
