[QUOTE=Дени;91691]The Committee of Union and Progress is one.
[/QUOTE]
The CUP is called [I]İttihat ve Terakki Cemiyeti[/I] in Turkish, with the word [B][I]cemiyeti[/I][/B] representing 'committee'. That differs from [I]komitet[/I] and [I]komita[/I]. Google translate does also produce [B][I]komite[/I][/B] for 'committee' in Turkish, but do you have any evidence of Turkish sources originally using [I]komitadhzi[/I] for CUP members? Couldn't the Macedonians have obtained the word for 'committee' directly from French rather than a Turkish medium, which was then recorded in Turkish sources as [I]komitadzhi[/I]?
[QUOTE]Yes, there is a lot of variation: we have [I]комитаџилак[/I] and [I]комитство[/I] (deprecated), for example.[/QUOTE]
The first has an unnecessary Turkish suffix that was adopted due to social circumstances (ie; contact with Turkish during the Ottoman period), even without it the word made (and still makes) perfect sense, and is suitable for Macedonian phonology.
