common sense is often parked at the door in the balkans. you'll typically find logic here as well, so the razor is somewhat negated.

natural selection will be the guiding principle for us all.

Voltron I have heard on a number of times that supposedly it was written that Alexander would revert to a different language when he needed to address his personal guards. In your studies did you come across this and if so what was that other language.

My thinking is could it be like myself with my cousins always speaking English even when its just all Macedonians in the group yet when a dog jumped a fence one time charging at the group the first word I heard was pazi…Macedonia for careful as in to be careful. Very strange indeed.

I believe it was a dialect Ozi. The Macedonians back then were regarded somewhat of a village hillybilly. There is nothing to suggest, even today of a seperate language.
You would think they would have something, anything to show for it. Rome did and they were just as versed in Greek. In Macedonia's case we have nothing. Isnt odd, to promote a language and culture you are not proud of ? Doesnt add up.

vultron for yout information in the book the ptofessor wrote that the ordinary macedonian never spoke greek only macedonian.The only people that spoke greek was the royal house.But the royal house spoke their mother tounge as well which was macedonian.So they spoke greek because of commercial reasons.SO your greek government's claim that all macedonians spoke greek is Totally FALSE.

George, sometimes I have a hell of a time understanding a Greek Cypriot. What is that supposed to mean though ? That they arent Greek ? There are many examples.

Yeah but aren’t dialect like flavors of icecream…in the end its still icecream…and although there would be difficulties to understand each other fluently surely not to be a different language then it must have had words in common and usually in dialects these words are usually basic words like go or back stop ect yet I recall a story of a Greek office having difficulty communicating with his Macedonian soldiers in the to and fro of battle such that it resulted in disarray and both his and their demise. One would think a dialect would not be so different that basic words could not be understood and in the throw of battle no one is going to be a stubborn prick and pretend not to understand.

Hey Voltron how ya mnall. See how I reckon it some might never had book learnin much in them there hills an speak as prdy as yall but what papi said he dun heard his papi said and such weez know a thing or two about sayin stuff.

I guess it depends on which side of the mason dixie line you hail from but them gd ol boys new how to communicate in the great war.

There are conflicting stories regarding that incident and not just limited to that one either. I still firmly believe that it was a dialect. They had every chance to promote their own language, why didnt they ? For commercial purposes ? Thats ridiculous. Are we going to speak Chinese within the next decade ? Should I start calligraphy lessons ?

Voltron you are avoiding the question that your country greece is a big liar why because they are saying ALL macedonians spoke greek they didn;'speak another language it was only greek there was no macedonian language.I just told you the ordinary Macedonian only spoke macedonian it was only the royal house that spoke greek,it was for commercial reasons but they spoke their mother tounge which was macedonian.Leaves a BIG hole in your greek govt propaganda that everybody spoke GREEK that is a BIG LIE!!!!
Challenge for voltron you have to admit it that you are wrong all this time.Stop bullshitting as if you are ignorant!

Don’t laugh…elementary school kids in Australia are learning Asian languages…mandatory exposure tryouts before it goes national…and Chinese is the most popular.

ozimak perhaps we can introduce painting by numbers to our friend voltron to count the number of fibs or lies he has told & check how much it corresponds to the greek govt's propaganda machine.Perhaps you could win a flight to greece flying olympic airways.Just kidding.
