Macedonian – basic information
- The Macedonian language is a member of the South Slavic subgroup. It is descended from Old Church Slavonic, which was the first Slavic literary language. For centuries, Macedonian shared its history with the Bulgarian language (accordingly, some Bulgarian researchers regard Macedonian as a dialect of Bulgarian, which is subject to controversy). In the latter half of the 19th century, following Bulgaria’s liberation from Turkish rule, Macedonian came to be regarded as a variety distinct from Bulgarian (the Macedonian territory was not part of Bulgaria). Macedonian literature began to flourish in the first half of the 20th century. The language itself was officially recognized in 1944 by the Antifascist Council for the People's Liberation of Yugoslavia.
- Macedonian is written in a modified version of the Cyrillic alphabet, which consists of 31 letters.
- Despite a relatively small number of native speakers, Macedonian displays fairly significant dialectal variation. Its regional varieties can be divided into five western dialect groups and two eastern.
- Macedonian is regulated by the Macedonian Language Institute "Krste Misirkov" at the Saints Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje.

- Just like in Bulgarian, what distinguishes Macedonian from other Slavic languages is that nouns are not declined for case. Another feature which is shared with Bulgarian is the presence of a definite article corresponding to the English the, which is postfixed (added as a suffix) to the noun, e.g. човек (chovek) (Eng. human being) → човекът (Eng. the human being).
- The article system in Macedonian is more complex than in Bulgarian. It features three different forms that pertain to the position of the object.
- Another major difference between Bulgarian and Macedonian is related to word stress. It falls on the third from last syllable in longer words, and on the penultimate syllable (the last but one) in shorter words.
- Historically, Macedonian was strongly influenced by the Serbo-Croatian language whereas Bulgarian by the Russian language.
