Slavic languages.
slavonic is the more technical term. i should know.

slavic is more of a shortened form, used more commonly in the tabloid papers.

Umm...guys...I don't know if you've noticed yet but I'll state the obvious anyway. Most people on this thread (and probably on UKL) are Russians !! Or something similar...I'm not good at distguishing between different countries/dialects.
