The Macedonian language (Македонски, Makedonski) is a language in the Eastern group of South Slavic languages. It is spoken by two million people in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and other countries where Slavic emigrants of this region live. The Macedonian language is closely related to the Bulgarian language. Some linguists even claim that the Macedonian is a local dialect of the Bulgarian.
Like the other members of the Eastern South Slavic group, but unlike other Slavic languages this macedonian variance has no noun cases, but has three different definite articles, which are used as suffixes.
A modified Cyrillic script is used for writing.
