Aherne, different peoples group in different ways.
You are applying the logic of Romania+Moldavia to the rest of Europe.
The logical error is in the fact that the separation of Romania and Moldavia is pretty much like the former separation between the 2 Germanies (FRG+GDR).
Romania (including Moldavia) doesn't border any "cousins" anymore. It's isolated now, unless you consider the gap between Valachians and Moldavians similar to the gap between Britain and Ireland or between Portuguese and Basque.
Confused.. So poles were in italy?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macedonian_languageThe Macedonian language belongs to the eastern sub-branch of the South Slavic branch of the Slavic languages of the Indo-European family of languages. The closest relative of Macedonian is Bulgarian, with which it has a high degree of mutual intelligibility. Prior to their codification in 1945, Macedonian dialects were for the most part classified as Bulgarian and some linguists consider them still as such, but this view is politically controversial. The next-closest language is Serbo-Croatian (often known by the names of its standard languages, Serbian, Montenegrin, Bosnian, and Croatian). All South Slavic languages, including Macedonian, form a dialect continuum, in which Macedonian and Bulgarian are sharply divergent from the Serbo-Croatian. The Torlakian dialect group is intermediate between Bulgarian, Macedonian and Serbian.
However, Vardarska has been part of Serbia since 1912 and therefore it is Serbian whereas Vardarska hasn't been part of Bulgaria since the medieval ages except for short occupation periods in WW1 and WW2.
Your map is wrong and stupid. Its time for you to admit it.
