My Dad, who is also from the Lerin area, uses jabolko (actually jaboko) and kukja, where as my Mom, who is from northern Kostur uses lapka and kushtcha.

El bre, are you a statichanec?

My family from that village use the words jaboko, and kukja too, but the word for fork is shtipka I think.

Shtipka is a peg in my dialect, like when you hang your clothes up.

Aren and Arno are used extensively by all people from Bitola, and I am sure among most other Macedonians. Jabolko or Jaboko (depending on the context and laziness, lol), Sega or Sea (depending on the context), Kukja only in my neck of the woods.

I have said it before and I will say it again, the Kostur dialect is one of the most interesting and archaic-sounding of all Macedonian dialects.

Shtipki seems to be used for anything that makes a pinching action, from clothespegs as SoM mentioned to tongs.

Yes Pelister, half of my family is from Statitsa. The word for fork is vilitchka.

I say Vilushka for fork.

[QUOTE=Risto the Great;12100]While we are at it (and since I claim Macedonian superiority being from Dolno Kotori :D ) ... how about "arno" or "aren". Who else uses it?[/QUOTE]

My grandmother uses, [I]Arno[/I] and [I]Aren[/I].

Hey RTG, I remember you once saying you had a connection to Kotori. There is an old community of Macedonians in Western Sydney, from Kotori. They have a community centre there, I've been there a few times as I have relations in that part of the world.

[QUOTE=Soldier of Macedon;12204]I say Vilushka for fork.[/QUOTE]

This thread has taken an interesting turn, the subtle and not so subtle variances in speach is something always intrigued me. In some places you could climb over a hill and find a whole new patois.

Yeah, I have some relatives there I believe.
I know one Alex from there who is a distant cousin. I never got to go there when the Kotortsi had their village dances.
