There are 6 languages from former Yugoslavia. Trust me because I live there. Those are: serbian, croatian, bosnian, slovenian, macedonian and motenegrin. Of the mentioned I speak bosnian, and when I try, I can be perfectly fluent in montenegrin, serbian and croatian. The most distingushed of all are slovenian and macedonian which are different to the rest like german is to dutch or norwegian, or jewish to arabian language. They have some distant simmilarities, but that is all. I live in Montenegro (I donīt speak itīs language though, which doesnīt mean I donīt know it) but I canīt understand or speak macedonian or slovenian although my language too comes from slavic group of languages. Russian is also alsvic but I canīt speak it.
Macedonian is not the same as ancient macedonian. It has nothing to do whith it, because it is slavic. Ancient macedonian was spoken by people who lived in Macedonia before the arrival of Slavs. It was simmilar to greek. Comparing ancient macedonian and modern macedonian is like comparing american english and language spoken by native Americans.
