    Default Macedonian language and dialects

    This is just a thread showing information on the Macedonian language and dialects. I will start off with maps.











    Taken from the book The Indo-European Languages edited by Anna Giacalone Ramat and Paul Ramat, 1998, page 416.

    The older generations living in those areas still speak Macedonian which was their first language, but it's a shame that the Macedonian language will soon disappear with the new generations only speaking Greek.

    Yes my cousins don't speak Macedonian like she does. She also has really interesting stories about hiding in mines when she was 10 years old for protection from the bombs dropping in Northern Greece during the civil war. My childhood was much more peaceful thank god.

    This is the dialect of Buf/Akrites, a village close to Lerin/Florina.

    She identifies as Greek Macedonian, but she calls the language Macedonian not Bulgarian.

    This is a Macedonian woman from the village of Buf/Akritas, Lerin/Florina region, northern Greece talking and singing in Macedonian. At the end she screams out with her fist in the air "razbudise Makedonija", in English, "wake up Macedonia".
