One thing why are there so many macedonian words in homers time Is homer Greek.Also if the macedonian language is supposed to be slavic why is there preslav language in homers time.So there is proof that the modern macedonian language is linked with the ancient as there are similar words or there are derivations of.So we have proof that in ancient times the macedonians spoke their own language.

If I'm not Mistaken, Didn't Homer call his literature " History "
Isn't the word "History" derive from Macedonian..?

Is Stori - (ts Stori) English meaning " It happened "

How AUTHENTIC is this anyway?Before jumping to conclusions,does anyone have a link (or maybe checked already) to the ORIGINAL script of the Illiad?Some online libraries perhaps?

Default Proto-Slavic in Homer's Works

I've seen these theory floating around quite a bit on the web. Looking at the Pelasgo-Thracians, we can find the existence of a Proto-Balto-Slavic language being spoken on the Balkans. According to this theory, a number of Slavic words were borrowed by Homer when writing both the "Illiad" and "Odyssey". Words such as dravikos-greeting, tresi-shake, luta-angry, etc. A complete list and study can be found here:

http://issuu.com/petro_invictus/docs...ments_in_homer

Despite there being evidence of Proto-Slavic languages being spoken in the Balkans during this time, I am not finding much to back up this theory. I have searched all over the web, and websites give up to 20 words from Homer's works with clear Slavic roots, but none of them are referenced.

I personally went through the "Illiad" in the original Homeric Greek, and did a search of the word "dravikos", a clear cognate to today's "zdravo" as a greeting, but could not find any results. I even referenced a dictionary of Homeric Greek but I could not find any of the words claimed.

While I won't go as far as to call this a fabrication, but it does not do the theory any justice to not reference and cite their claims. There are too many theories floating around without any proper evidence or support. Does anyone know more about this theory? Perhaps someone has even found these Slavic words in Homer's works.

Here is the Illiad in the original Homeric Greek: http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/...t:1999.01.0133

Here is the Homeric lexicon:

Yes, this is quite bad, but we've seen worse.

http://www.macedoniantruth.org/forum...ighlight=homer

... that's why I didn't want to comment it. A good start would be to write the Homeric words in Greek, not in (misspelled) Latin, so we know what they mean.

Maybe you can find 2 or 3 or 10 strong cases from the above paper so we can further discuss them.

As for the etymology of Odyssey, it has already been discussed somewhere in the forum. The name Odysseus is probably related to the verb odyssomai (=To be angry, wroth, incensed, to rage) which Homer DOES use 18 times in his work

Not many choices for written languages back then. This doesn't bother me.
