Macedonian language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.

 

Origin and History

Macedonian is a South Slavic language from the East. It is spoken by about two million people as a first language and serves as the official language of North Macedonia. In the country and its diaspora, with a smaller number of speakers in the transnational area of Macedonia, most speakers can be identified. In parts of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania and Serbia, Macedonian is also a recognised minority language and is mainly spoken by emigrant populations in Australia, Canada and the United States.

 

Dialects

From the western dialects of the East South Slavic dialect continuum, whose earliest known form is Old Church Slavonic, Macedonian emerged. This dialect range was called "Bulgarian" for most of its existence, though its western dialects came to be recognised separately as "Macedonian" in the 19th century. Normal Macedonian was codified in 1945 and modern literature has since been produced. Macedonian has a high degree of shared intelligibility with Bulgarian and variants of Serbo-Croatian, since it is part of a dialect continuum with other South Slavic languages.

 

29 Macedonian dialects are distinguished by linguists, with linguistic variations distinguishing Western and Eastern dialect groups. Turkish and Russian have been traditionally influenced by the Macedonian vocabulary. Neighbouring and prestige languages have developed much less prevalent vocabulary influences. Since Macedonian and Bulgarian are mutually intelligible, share similar linguistic characteristics and are socio-historically connected, some linguists are separated as separate languages or as a single pluricentric language, respectively, in their views of the two. Outside of Bulgaria, the universal opinion is that Macedonian is an independent language within the spectrum of the Eastern South Slavic dialect.

 

The Slavic people who lived in the Balkans spoke their own dialects and interacted with other people using other dialects or languages. During the 9th century, the "canonical" Old Church Slavonic era of Macedonian development began and lasted until the first half of the 11th century. Serbia's presence grew by the end of the 13th century as Serbia extended its boundaries southwards. Via the written use of Macedonian dialects called "Bulgarian" by authors, the second half of the 18th century saw the emergence of modern literary Macedonian. In the Ottoman Empire, the first half of the 19th century saw the emergence of nationalism among the South Slavic people. Macedonian was declared an official language on 2 August 1944 at the first meeting of the Anti-Fascist Council for the National Liberation of Macedonia. From 1945 to 1991, Macedonian served as one of Yugoslavia's three official languages.

Macedonian speakers remain uncertain because of neighbouring countries' policies and population emigration, figures ranging from 1.4 million to 3.5 million have been recorded. According to the 2002 census, North Macedonia's total population was 2,022,547, with 1,344,815 people reporting their native language as Macedonian. Both ethnic minorities in the world also learn and speak Macedonian as a second language to varying degrees.

 

Countries spoken

The Macedonian language is an official language only in northern Macedonia, and in parts of Albania (Pustec), Romania, Serbia (Jabuka and Plandiste) and Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is a registered minority and official language. There are arrangements for studying Macedonian in Romania, as Macedonians are an officially recognised minority group.

 

Macedonian is learned and taught at different universities across the world, and language-focused study centres are based at universities around Europe (Austria, Italy, Russia, France, Germany) as well as Australia, Canada and the US (North Carolina and Chicago).
