Interesting is the word for children or off-spring, it has been suggested that Chedo is related to the Thracian word Kenthas which means the same thing. When one considers the dialects of Kostur in Macedonia and the equivalent variant of Chendo, it provides even more resemblance.

This feature is often present in the dialects of Kostur, so instead of Zabi it is Zambi, instead of Bracheda it is Brachenda, etc.

Of all the members of the Slavic linguistic group, the Macedonian language is the only one that has a unique word for a 'mouse'. While in Russian, Bulgarian, Polish, Croatian, etc it is Mish or Mush (or some variant with that root), in the Macedonian language it is Глушец, (Glušec, Glushets). In Thracian the word is Argilos.

What is the origin of the word 'Kukla' meaning 'Doll'? Most sources on the net seem to indicate Turkish, and apart from Macedonians, Albanians and Greeks using the same word, Google Translate shows the same word in Russian.

Make it 2 unique words for "mouse".
20km South of you we say "glufets".

I find it interesting that "f" can replace "sh" or vice versa.

The original word is Glufets. It comes from Gluf, or Gluv, which means to be deaf, even though they can hear.

In German, pigins are called Taube and comes from Taub > deaf.

Why is it so, can't really tell.

So we have a unique Macedonian word, and there are surely several more, and the best place to find them is when speaking with older Macedonians in the native dialects, as we begin to uncover more we will compile an eventual list.

How about the words KANDISA and BENDISA, does anybody else here use them, and if so, what do they mean to you?

The word Bendisa is close Bendis, the name of an ancient Thracian goddess of the moon. The ancient Greeks identified her with Artemis.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bendis

Quote:
"Just as in all other respects the Athenians continue to be hospitable to things foreign, so also in their worship of the gods; for they welcomed so many of the foreign rites that they were ridiculed for it by comic writers; and among these were the Thracian and Phrygian rites." --Strabo Geography (1st Century CE), 10.3.18.
Thracians and Phrygians = Macedonians.

Bendisa > to like somebody, to be attracted to someone.

Kandisa > to prepare one self for work after long thought or avoiding some task for example.
