Western Bulgarian or Macedonian?: The Dobrejšo Gospel (XIII c.)

Abstract [en]

Using the thirteenth-century Dobrejšo Gospel (D) as an example, the article examines issues of geography and chronology that come into play in attempts to classify medieval manuscripts as Macedonian vs. western Bulgarian on the basis of orthographic and lexical features. The paper demonstrates that with the exception of the orthographic substitution of o for etymological strong back jer, and a single lexical variant, both of which can be traced to an early shared ancestor of D and its two closest relatives, each of the orthographic features of D that corresponds to a Macedonian phonological feature can also be found in non-transitional dialects of the southwestern territory of contemporary Bulgaria.
