Well, the same thing happens in Croatia, in Zagreb most people don't use the standard dialect (stokavski) informally but the local dialect (kajkavski) which is more similar to Slovenian.

Svet wrote:For example "I found her" is usually translated as "наjдов jа", instead of "jас jа наjдов". In English you can say "found it", but there are cases in which the personal pronoun cannot be omitted, without depriving the sentence of sense, whereas in Macedonian this is possible.

They just happen to still use some tenses that are fallen out of use in spoken Serbian, yet are still retained in the standard language. The vocabulary is very similar to Serbian, and yes, Macedonian sounds a bit archaic and dialectal to us too.Svet wrote:Macedonian functions in a lot of aspects like Bulgarian - it omits nouns, has gender and person-oriented verbs, ....
What do you mean by this?

There was a Bulgarian tv show where asked some Macedonians who is Tzar Samoil. And they said that he is Macedonian tzar.
Svet wrote:Samuil was Macedonian, just as I am Sofian and you're Starozagorian, it is the different understanding of the term "Macedonian" that leads to problems. Oh, by the way, Samuil was also half-Armenian (he must've been HOT!).

She named all of her fours sons with biblical names - a tradition in Armenia (something that is not so often done in our lands) - David, Moses, Aaron and Samuel. One of Samuel's daughters was given an Armenian name as well - after her grandmother, and another one of his daughters - I think it was Theodora, was wed with an Armenian as well. So, one of our greatest kings is half-Armenian, another one - Gavriel-Radomir a quarter. But then again, we have had a lot of half-Greek monarchs, half-Armenian is tons better. And it is also hotter.
