Bulgarian is a South Slavic language spoken in Southeastern Europe, primarily in Bulgaria. It is the language of Bulgarians.

Along with the closely related Macedonian language (collectively forming the East South Slavic languages), it is a member of the Balkan sprachbund and South Slavic dialect continuum of the Indo-European language family. The two languages have several characteristics that set them apart from all other Slavic languages: changes include the elimination of case declension, the development of a suffixed definite article and the lack of a verb infinitive, but it retains and has further developed the Proto-Slavic verb system (albeit analytically). One such major development is the innovation of evidential verb forms to encode for the source of information: witnessed, inferred, or reported.

It is the official language of Bulgaria, and since 2007 has been among the official languages of the European Union. It is also spoken by minorities in several other countries.


About This Course

Each unit of this course, aside from review units, is divided into three parts: Basic Sentences , Notes, Drills. Units 13 on have a fourth part, a reading passage. The Basic Sentences are normal dialogue material, meant to be memorized.  The Notes explain the grammatical structure of the language and are divided roughly into three phases. The first phase (Units 1-S, 7-11) has a great deal of grammatical material per unit, in order to give the student a working knowledge of the most frequent patterns. The second phase (Units 1317, 19-23) treats fewer grammatical features per unit.

The third phase (Units 2S-29) gives more overall treatments of selected features. The index to the grammatical notes gives ready reference to all features discussed.

Use of This Course

These units are designed for use with a native speaker of Bulgarian. The accompanying tapes include the Basic Sentences of each un1t and nearly all drills. (Drills such as those with blanks to be filled and translation drills are omitted, as are all reviews.) These are meant to supplement classroom work, not substitute for it. Suggested procedure for study is:

1. The instructor reads the Bulgarian of the Basic Sentences item by item, repeating each for each member of the class. Each student repeats immediately after the instructor, imitating his or her pronunciation as exactly as possible. (This type of drill is basic and is to be done with the Grammatical Drills and Listening In sections also.) Wrong pronunciations on the part of the student, including wrong intonations, are corrected. This correction consists of repetition at normal speed of the i tern mispronounced, with the student repeating. If a linguist is present he may give a technical explanation, with the instructor again furnishing the model for the student to imitate.

2. The student goes over the same material by listening to the tape and repeating, doing this until he knows the dialogue by heart.

3. The instructor repeats each sentence for the student, again correcting pronunciation. Repetition is continued until the students can say the sentence. smoothly and naturally.

4. Variation drills are made with the Basic Sentences. These may be straight substitution drills, cue substitution drills, question and answer drills, etc.
