The ancient-history site Livius.org has some stuff on the language of ancient Macedon at http://www.livius.org/maa-mam/macedonia/macedonia.html#Language , which I found interesting enough to look for further material, preferably from professional linguists. However, as one may guess, the modern conflict between Greece and Macedonia (FYROM) has resulted in alot of partisan nonsense about the issue on the 'Net*. Could anyone here point me to some reputable sources, so that I can avoid looking thru the weird stuff? My preemptory thanks. Andreas * My favourite nutty claim on the subject has to be that the modern Macedonian language is not a Slavic language, but the descendant of ancient Macedonian, not closely related to either Slavic or Greek.
