Risto the Great 09-06-2008 02:01 AM

[QUOTE=Truth Bearer;750]As much as Tito forced people to change their names from OV to SKI so what's the difference Risto??[/QUOTE]
Oh I am not sure.
My people come from modern Greece.
My ancestors names finished in SKI and O.
But it is interesting how you compare what Tito allowed versus what has happened in Greece over the last few decades.

Where was [B]Tito[/B] when Pulev[B]ski[/B] wrote his Macedonian dictionary in [B]1875[/B]?

My great great grandfather who fought the Ottomans was Jankovski, the komiti called him Jankula. Hm that is before Tito.

Are you obviously refering to the Vlach called Gjorgjija Pulevski by the way he died in Sofia where he resided in his last years........Why would a proud "Macedonian" who advocated a free and independant Macedonia would go and live in Sofia in the heart of the arch enemy?

Truth Bearer 09-06-2008 11:15 AM

And by the way there is only a handfull of "vskis" before 1944......

Lets see what else we find about Georgi Pulevski.....

[I][QUOTE]Pulevski was also active as a military volunteer in anti-Ottoman insurgencies at various times in his life. In 1862, he fought on the Serbian side as member of the [B]Bulgarian Legion [/B]against an Ottoman siege at Belgrade. Later, during the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-1878, which led to the independence of Bulgaria, he was leader ("voijvod") of a unit of volunteers fighting on the Russian-Bulgarian side,taking part in the Battle of Shipka Pass. After the war, he went to live in the [B]newly liberated Bulgarian capital Sofia[/B]. Also he expressed his regret about the missunification between Principality of Bulgaria and Macedonia in a request to the Bulgarian Parliament. Later Pulevski received a government pension in recognition of his service as [B]a Bulgarian volunteer,[/B] until his death in 1895. It have to be pointed, there were a number of occasions in which [B]Pulevski was regarded as ethnic Bulgarian [/B]by Serbian, Russian and Bulgarian authorities.[/QUOTE][/I]

Why would that matter at all? Their were proud Macedonians and VMRO members in Austria and other areas.......Your point is?

Then lets see what type of books did the great man write...

In 1880, Pulevski published Slavjano-naseljenski makedonska slognica rečovska ('Grammar of the language of the Macedonian Slavic population'), a work that is today known as the first attempt at a grammar of Macedonian. In it, Pulevski systematically contrasted his language, which he called našinski ("our language") or slavjano-makedonski ("Slavo-Macedonian") with both Serbian and Bulgarian. All records of this book were lost during the first half of 20th century and only discovered again in the 1950s in Sofia. Owing to the writer's lack of formal training as a grammarian and dialectologist, it is today considered of limited descriptive value; however, it has been characterised as "seminal in its signaling of ethnic and linguistic consciousness but not sufficiently elaborated to serve as a codification",

Finally, in 1892, Pulevski completed the first Slavjanomakedonska opšta istorija (General History of the Macedonian Slavs), a large manuscript with over 1700 pages.

I don't understand why he's calling his ethnicity Slavo Macedonian.Do you agree with this or not?
