  • Arebica or Arabica was a Bosniak variant of the Perso-Arabic script used by Bosniaks to write the Serbo-Croatian language. It was used mainly between the 15th and 19th centuries and is frequently categorized as part of Aljamiado literature. Before World War I there were unsuccessful efforts by Bosnian Muslims to adopt Arebica as the third official alphabet for Bosnian alongside Latin and Cyrillic. The last book printed in the script was in 1941. Besides literature, Arabica was used in religious schools and administration, though in much less use than other scripts.
