There word is very rare,more Croatian than Serbian too,too bad someone deleted my mark.

Zabadu (talk)

The word is definitely not rare. Among youth in Croatia the word is even more popular than the standard word *prijatelj*. You'll have to back up your claim about the word being "very rare" as googling for it (site:hr "frend") gives about 800 thousand results within the .hr domain. However, I have already explained that in my edit summary so I'm not exactly sure why you're acting clueless here. kajkavski (talk) 15:10, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Yes kajkavski,yes you are right absolutely.In Croatia it is dear kajkavski but not in Serbia.I noticed your Croat wish to dominate this wiktioanry very soon.Not all Serbo-Croat speakers live in Croatia,MORE THAN DOUBLE PEOPLE SPEAK SERBIAN THAN CROATIAN.So it is minor.Almost every newly created Croat word is minor.

Sorry but you'll have to consult someone else about your problems. I'm done talking here. kajkavski (talk) 15:24, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I don't have problems.You problem is that you're being Croat-centric.The word is rare and almost non-existent outside Croatia.Just because it is popular among Croatian mladež does't mean it is used in Serbia,Bosnia,Montenegro or even older Croatians.

I can only wish Serbian was listed here separate as it is but unfortunately it isn't.

frend (and its inflected forms) has plenty of attestations on .rs domain, indicating its usage by Serbian speakers. It is, however, chiefly used in Croatia. --Ivan Štambuk (talk) 13:24, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
