Mieczyslaw Malecki – ‘On the Problems of Macedonian Dialectology’, Rocznik Slawistycczny

Therefore, in regard to the question whether the Macedonian dialects are Serbian or Bulgarian, I would answer that they are not entirely either Serbian or Bulgarian, but that most of them belong to an individual dialect type (which may be called the Macedonian language).

1908_George Demetrios – ‘When I Was Boy in Greece’

Yet in Southern Macedonia there was at first no enmity between the purely Greek villages and those speaking the Macedonian dialect. … Being neither Turkish nor Greek, we called them Bulgarian, but their language is not Bulgarian, but the Macedonian dialect, and I found lovable people among them, honest, hospitable, and kind. … It was difficult for a boy to…

These hostile Churches were the cause of the recent disturbances in Macedonia. Greeks and Bulgarians especially converted the villages with fire and sword, and in Macedonia and all along the Albanian frontier it must never be forgotten, in dealing with the boundary question, that Greek, Bulgarian and Servian means the adherence of the Orthodox Church in those countries, and not…

These Macedonians have a character and a dialect of their own, such as would justify their being considered one of the many distinct Yugo-Slav types.

There are still those of today’s inhabitants of Macedonia that do not consider themselves as Serbs or Bulgarians, but a separate ethnicity, probably descendants of the ancient Macedonians.

Macedonians were by no means Greek. They were neither by race, nor by manners, nor by tendencies. Their government was not Hellenic. Their history was analogous to that of the Illyrian, Thracian, and Paeonian peoples, who lived near them, but not to that of the Hellenic cities. Извор: google.books

A nation is called a people who are of one kind and who speak the same language and who live and associate with one another and who have the same customs and songs and celebrations – these people are called a nation, and the place in which they live is called the fatherland of that nation. So too the Macedonians…

Macedonia will be independent and the Macedonians will remain Macedonians…What the Macedonians want is autonomy for their country, with the intervention of Europe in their favor. No division, no annexation to another state; Macedonia is unique and to the Macedonians. Who can oppose the creation of an autonomous Macedonia? … Greeks have large claims, it is clear, but after the…

Sometimes around Goce [Delchev] we felt like one, socialists, anarchists and nationalists, because we thought and acted only as Macedonians, everyone next to another and everyone as one.   Macedonia for the Macedonians! This idea, nevertheless, remained a Bulgarian idea until it disappeared even among the Bulgarians. Neither the Greeks, nor the Turks, nor any other nationality in Macedonia accepted…

This winter a Macedonian theater group, under the direction of Crnodrimski, gave guest performances in Belgrade and certain other cities of the Kingdom of Serbia. It presented original Macedonian dramas in the Macedonian language. In one word, we had attempts at a new spiritual-cultural literature and art – Macedonian. Let us not fool ourselves. What Crnodrimski presented was not jargon…
