Default First printed Macedonian alphabet by Gjorgji Pulevski

Slognica rečovska - published in 1880 in Sofia by Gjorgji Pulevski in an attempt to create the first official Macedonian alphabet, spelling and grammar.

Big letters:
А Б В Г Д Е Є Ж З И І К Л М Н О П Р С Т У Ф Х Ц Ч Ш Щ Џ Ѳ Ь Ъ Ѣ Ы Ю Ѫ Я

Small letters:
а б в г д е є ж з и і к л м н о п р с т у ф х ц ч ш щ џ ѳ ь ъ ѣ ы ю ѫ я

What's the point of Macedonia changing its alphabet now?

I didn't say it didn't exist, but this was the first attempt at creating an official printed Macedonian alphabet for Macedonians.

Nothing really, but it is older than the new Serbian and Latin letters.

Latin letters? One could argue that this version has a heavy Russian/Bulgarian influence...why not go all the way back to the original Glagolithic or Cyrillic from the 10th century?

It can only have a Macedonian influence. I don't mind that alphabet. But history solved the problem for us.

Macedonians used most of these letters before 1944. I don't mind the current alphabet, I was just wondering which one people like most.

To an extent - Russians in particular developed their own letters for their own specific sounds. Importing those would not necessarily be Macedonian.

Russians didn't ivanov go to the Russians only to find that the Russian alphabet owes it all to the Macedonian alphabet ie Methodius & kiril visits,
Well if we go the old church Glagolitic & Slavonic scripts why don't we go back to the ancient Macedonian im sure there was one with 36 letters I saw it in one of our threads..There was such a thing as a prehistoric alphabet.Otis I meant it in a doubt situation a hypothetical.

There are a few things I don't agree with in the new alphabet, one of them being the removal of "Ъ".

I would replace "J" with "I"

Get rid of "Џ" completely.
