Thanks for this helpful explanation, Goran. I'm now fully satisfied that 
"Serbian with Ekavian/Ijekavian pronunciation" is the description we 

I will post updated registration forms that say "The pronunciation 
difference is reflected in the written language."

It is worth noting that Serbian orthographic standard, as cited in the
registration form, uses the term pronunciation (ekavski i ijeakvski
*izgovor*) to describe those two variants.

As the Serbian uses phonemic orthography differences in pronunciation 
reflected in the spelling. We had a few examples here, with words like
milk or a girl ("mleko" and "mlijeko", "devojka" and "djevojka").
