Macedonian is a member of the South Slavic group of the Slavic Branch
of the Indo-European family. It is the first or secnd language of the
approximately 2 million people in the Republic of Macedonia and is
also spoken in neighboring Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, and the Federal
Republic of Yugoslavia as well as by significant �migr� communities in
Eastern and Western Europe, North America and Australia. This
monogrpah describes modern standard Macedonian as codified in the
Republic of Macedonia, although a brief treatment of the dialectal
situation is also provided. Due to the endangered and disputed status
of Macedonian in neighboring countries, the sociolinguistic/
geolingusitic section begins with a linguistic history of
Macedonian. This is followed by sections on phonology, morphology,
syntax, and a text. Standard Macedonian is characterized by
antepenultimate stress that can cross word boundaries, a relatively
simple nominal system, a complex verbal system, and fairly free word
order. Situated at the heart of the Balkan linguistic league,
Macedonian shows the effect of centuries of multilingual contact at
all levels.
