Can you spot any influences from the Russian language here?
How about Greek?
Or maybe English, which has recently begun to loan more terms to Macedonian?
How are you?
Како сте?(KAH-koh steh?)
What is your name?
Како се викате? (KAH-koh seh VEE-kah-teh?)
Добра ноќ. (DOH-brah nohtch)
Where are the toilets?
Каде ce тoaлeтите? (KAH-deh seh twah-LEH-tee-teh?)
Can I use your phone?
Може ли да го искористам вашиот телефон? (MOH-zheh lee dah goh is-KOH-rees-tahm VAH-she-yoht teh-leh-FOHN?)
Being an Indo-European language, there are a lot of commonalities to Macedonian that stretch beyond the borders of Eastern Europe, all the way to the local and official languages of India, the Americas, and more.
