Croatian Dictionary

Croatian language is easily pronounced because a letter always has the same pronounciation no matter where it may occur. It should be noted that Croatian language is strictly phonetic, every word being pronounced exactly as it is spelt, following the principle:

"to write as you speak, and to speak as you write". If you stick to this principle, no great efforts will be required to pronounce and read Croatian language. It contains no sounds which are not found in English.
