Greek? The modern Greek you speak which is an offshoot of the Romeic language that was finally decided upon in the 1970s is it this Greek you mean?

All live languages evolute.
Since Greek is written for the last 3.600 years...and was and is a live language... it changes.

On the other hand old slavonic appeared before 1.000 years and modern macedonian was canonized before 50 years.

The Macedonian language got its literary form in the 1940s, but Greek was decided upon as late as in the 1970s when you finally abolished the Katharevousa. So in this case Macedonian predates Greek.

Here is a quote from wikipedia:
Quote:
Two main forms of the language have been in use since the end of the medieval Greek period: Dhimotikí (Δημοτική), the Demotic (vernacular) language, and Katharévusa (Καθαρεύουσα, meaning "purified"), an imitation of classical Greek, which was used for literary, juridic, administrative and scientific purposes during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This diglossia problem was brought to an end in 1976 (act — νόμος — 306/1976), when Dhimotikí was declared the official language of Greece.

Are we talking about languages or written works? Think about that.

History starts when writing starts.
