    Old folktale narrated in Voden dialect.

    This is a link of an old folktale narrated in Voden dialect:

    Macedonian language – folktale in Voden Dialect Македонски јазик – народна приказна: Как Господ испитал мажот и жената – Воденски говорΜακεδονική γλώσσα - λα...


    It has both Cyrillic and Latin transcriptions to it. Do you think this might be useful?

    It's interesting to see how some words have the complete opposite meaning from region to region in Macedonia.

    The word "sporo" or "sporno" in the republic means slow or sluggish but, in Voden, it seems to mean effortless and easy.

      That is true:

      1. спор - as a noun means quarrel
      2. спор - as an adjective means slow
      3. спори - as a verb means to happen without much effort

      The opposite of спорно is напорно - something that requires a lot of effort.

      I am thinking of creating similar videos with folk tales narrated in the endangered dialects of Aegean Macedonia. I considered using Cyrillic and Alfavita, but I decided to use Latin transliteration instead.

      Do you think this might be useful?

          I commend you for this initiative. Latin transliteration is the way to go. Do you have someone on the ground in Egej to share your efforts with the locals?

            I think it was great. Quite easy to understand most of it for me. Particularly from a flow perspective (e.g. which syllable is stressed/accented). Perhaps it might have been nice to have the Cyrillic version in standard Macedonian as a means of comparison.

              The opposite of спорно is напорно - something that requires a lot of effort. (напорно - I knew that one too: a common word to describe something that is arduous and difficult. Nice to learn the other meaning of спорно: something easy and effortless)
              ...
              Thanks for the clarification.

                I have only a few contacts in Aegean Macedonia. I sent it to Evgenija:

                македонија има сила


                If you know someone that might find this useful, feel free to pass the link.

                I was thinking of adding the subtitles in standard Macedonian, but as I started doing that, I realized that the differences are minor (a few local words, and a few phonetic features). So I decided to go with the original dialect. Plus I checked the old words like софалка, нишчалка... and they are included in the standard Macedonian dictionary.

                  Very interesting, I wish more research was done on topics like this and compiled into a single authority. As the old folks are moving on a lot of things are going to go with them if no one takes the time to write it all down.
