Interesting facts about the Bulgarian language
Approximately 10 million people speak Bulgarian and it is one of the oldest documented Slavic languages. The suffixed definite article makes Bulgarian significantly different from other Slavic languages, and the Cyrillic alphabet was invented for Old Church Slavonic, which was used especially in the 10th and the 11th centuries.
The language's loanwords mainly come from Turkish, Russian, and Greek. Since the 19th century, people have been trying to replace Turkish words with Slavisms from Russian, but these efforts have only been able to prevail in the written language. The colloquial language is still dominated by Turkish elements and terms from German or French are predominantly used in technical fields in Bulgaria.
In terms of Bulgarian dialects, a distinction is made between East Bulgarian, which forms the basis of the written language, and West Bulgarian, which has become increasingly important, since the 20th century.
