There have been many misconceptions that a “Macedonian” (Slavonic) language did exist prior to 1910 as an official language. Many Bulgarian documents as a result were tweaked by Skopje and re-written in the new “Macedonian” language after its formation in the mid to late 1940s. These documents have been considered, “authentic Macedonian” documents, yet if this was to be the case why did the United States of America not recognise such a language. Note section 137 at the bottom of the page and the year 1910, AFTER THE SO CALLED, “MACEDONIAN” ILINDEN UPRISING (KRUSEVO):
DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND LABOR
BUREAU OF THE CENSUS
Thirteenth Census of the United States

134. The following is a list of principal foreign languages spoken in the United States. Avoid giving other names when one in this list can be applied to the language spoken. With the exception of certain languages of eastern Russia, the list gives a name for every European language in the proper sense of the word.
Albanian Gypsy Roumanian
Armenian Irish Russian
Basque Italian Rutherian
Bohemian Japanese Scotch
Breton Lappish Servian or Croatian (including Bosnian, Dalmatian, Herzegovinian and Montenegrin)
Bulgarian Lettish Slovak
Chinese Little Russian Slovenian
Danish Lithuanian Spanish
Dutch Magyar Swedish
Finnish Moravian Syrian
Flemish Norwegian Turkish
French Polish Welsh
German Portuguese Wendish
Greek Rhaeto-Romish (including Ladin & Friulan) Yiddish
135. Do not write “Austrian,” but write German, Bohemian, Ruthenian, Roumanian, Slovenian, Slovak, or such other term as correctly defines the language spoken.
136. Do not write “Slavic” or “Slavonian,” but write Slovak, Slovenian, Russian, etc., as the case may be.
137. Do not write “Macedonian,” but write Bulgarian, Turkish, Greek, Servian, or Roumanian, as the case may be.
Furthermore it should be noted in the list of languages recognised that there are some which really do not even exist or are spoken readily today. Even Gypsy was recognised, therefore surely if “Macedonian” was the language of the time, and the language was distinct from being referred to as a Western Bulgarian idiomatic tongue (See the Encyclopaedia of language and linguistics which affirms this point), some recognition would have been given by the United States, or were the Americans also intensely denying these people the linguistic recognition which they deserved? Well, the answer is very obvious, and does not even require attention. Then again, some of our learned colleagues from maknews have suggested that there was a western world conspiracy to ensure that the Hellenic nature of Macedonia be kept in place, hence it was THE ONLY language out of a list of all possible language that was “not recognised”.
