it must be so frustrating to hear:
***so you guys use the russian alphabet?***
What about *" C A N Y O U T R A N S L A T E T H A T F R O M A R A B I C ?"*
At least Turkish isn't written in the Arabic script anymore so it's easier for even some of the dumber westerners to distinguish the two languages. Iranians on the other hand have to deal with that constantly.
Geez i never thought from their perspective. I'm pretty sure there are some people who thinks they're Arab right?
Yes, Iranians are believed to be Arabs by other people much more than Turks.
Oh god i would be so pissed
I've made this mistake before in a gym with people from all different backgrounds (am from western Europe so the horrible wrong stereotype - I have simply not been confronted with the languages a lot). I hear the difference but... I didn't see it when I tried to exchange phone numbers and couldn't figure it out. Is there a fast way to see the difference?
Welcome to judge, but I just want to learn!
Actually i don't know much about it too. I usuallt research when i need.
This is the most triggering thing ever. There's barely five things Bulgaria has contributed to the world and damn it if we will let Russia take the credit for one of them.
That's the thing we shouldn't. Every other 24th may there is a debate with Russia and holy shit is it annoying as fuck
The problem is, the 24th of may is the day of Cyril and Methodius, who created the glagolitic script and were greeks from the area around Thessaloniki. While, the Cyrillic alphabet was created after a request of Tsar Simeon from the Preslav scholars. So, it really is the wrong date to argue on that.
Paradox giving Simeon the lisp trait in CK2/3 has to be the biggest easter egg that nobody from Bulgaria has ever understood.
Basically the in-game idea is that Simeon could not pronounce certain sounds from the Glagolithic and he had the scholars make another alphabet so he could speak normally and that's how Cyrillic came to be.
Well that's a neat little myth you never hear in history class.
what are the other 4, i genuinely don't know?
It was a figure of speech.
Perhaps the greatest contribution of Bulgaria to civilisation
Don't ask me what is this.
Before clicking the link I was 100% certain I will be looking at this glorious invention.
Prolly the whole "stopping a potential Islamic hegemony over the Balkans (and, to some, Europe itself) during Khan Tervel's reign" thing we like to always talk about.
And, if I were to guess, innovations in the field of computer science as well, though that is very widely debated given a certain John Atanasoff's American nationality.
Well we did use it for a short while
American idiot: sO yOu ARe UsiNG ThE RUsSiaN AplHabeT?

HOW STUPID HAVE YOU READ HISTORY?
We speak a Latin language and we still get asked if we speak Russian...what else is there to say?
I met once a dude who asked me how often do I visit Moscow xD
Moscow visits you
Well, it's better to visit Russia before Russia visits you, that's for sure. We've experienced it first hand.
Because you chose «Da» instead of «Si»
Actually, Latin had no word for “yes”
Are you suggesting Romanians got their "da" from Russian? If that's the case, where did the other Latin speaking nations get their words for "yes"?
From Slavic languages, yes.
Si used in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian come from the Latin word sic that means “thus”, while oui in French comes from hoc illi in Latin meaning “this way”. Latin simply did not have one word for yes.
From Old or Middle Bulgarian, not Russian.
More likely known as Old Church Slavonic for anyone who isn’t Bulgarian
Honorary Slavs :)
You would think the name ROMANia would be enough
I Thought that Romania was slav until 5th grade
What gave you that idea?
Romania is located in east europe and that Romania once was a commie country
Yes, but how often do you visit Moscow?
It's barely visited by romanians.Plus most romanians despise Russia
До сих пор, однажды - so far, only once in the city. Ukraine is closer.
Using an alphabet to talk has to be an interesting thing to do.
The first thing that crossed my mind
Could be talking online
Isn't that still typing?
There is an american action movie set in Belgrade.
All the signs are in Russian. xD
I was so happy when I saw the signs in age of ultron were (mostly) in Serbian
Wait, really? Wich one? How can they be so stupid? I mean they can at least check even though that is basic knowledge. The IQ of Americans really suprises me every day.
Can't really remember. It's at least 10 years old.
Sorry, I really can't remember.
I dontnspeak cryillic
Turkish is Latin, you speak Latin?
Nah bruh everyone knows Turkish is Arabic. Can you speak Arabic? /s
Bro really? Damn I went to the wrong school
Yeah, I and my brothers are speaking Arabic 😎😎
Can you speak Spanish and russish????????
Oh you are a commie you do speak Russish!!!!!!/s
How do you talk in Cyrillic alphabet though?
Let me demonstrate.
I'm still not convinced, do you speak Putin?
no, they speak Stalin
I always say basic things in cyrillic to assert dominance in games, never gets old.
What do you mean by assert dominance?
Баница с праз
There - maybe I cursed you, maybe I threatened your wife, or I told you what I am currently cooking. You’ll never know unless you are “one of us”
Oooh, that's interesting, thanks!
Same, and to make friend with the actual russians
Because they aren't taught where the Cyrillic was created and why.
And by who. Too many people think it was created by the Russians.
It was created in Bulgaria by Bulgarian scholars under a commission of Tsar Simeon I
And if you tell this to some dumb fuck he will look at you and ask what Bulgaria is
The Cyrillic was created in Veliki Preslav that is near Shumen, so - very far from Macedonia.
It was created by a team of students of Cyril and Methodius, most likely lead by St Kliment of Ohrid - a Bulgarian scholar, who after the creation of the alphabet returned to Ohrid to develop the Ohrid Literary school which continued to be among the major cultural centres of Cyrillic dissemination throughout the First Bulgarian Empire.
Okay here is a little secret. There haven’t been any actual Macedonians since Alexander the Great. And even than Macedonia was a Greek polis.
at the time they were Bulgarian tho.
Cyrillic? Don't you mean Russian hieroglyphics?
Cyrillic? Don't you mean the anti-american communist alphabet that replaces all A's with D's?
\>implying Greek letters are less hieroglyphical
И хаве а куестион фор Год...... Ваааааааааај
For us (at least in Italy) it's "can you understand Romanian? Bruh it's a fucking neo Latin language it's more similar to Italian than to Albanian fuck sake
Wtf I've never heard that before. I mean I don't live in Italy but still that is a very bizarre comparison
The fact is that here in Italy Albanians and Romanians are the prevalent groups coming from the Balkans, so they are often associated with eachother. Hence why people believe that if you know Albanian you might know Romanian (obviously not most, fortunately, but there's still people that unironically think that)
I understand where they are coming from even tho its very ignorant but still very weird.
That’s an interesting one for sure. I never heard it before
Delete western spy
There was this one guy who said he didn't speak pictures... I was so damn annoyed with him, reported him and trolled his whole game.
But are you?
Why do Bulgarians use Russian alphabet? That's the question
OmG YoU SpEaK CyrrIlIc oMG СуКа БляТь
Edit: Fixed error
сука is not the same thing as "cyka". Write "suka" instead next time :)
Can you elaborate tho? I'm actually interested what the difference is
When using a latin keyboard and switch to bulgarian, u is "у" and y is "ъ", so im guessing its the same in russian...really wanna know if thats the case
Yea but whats the difference between съка и сука you know
If you fall for a scam, you're a съка.
But in all seriousness, it's not съка, it's suka as in сука. English speakers are writing it out in latin letters but they don't correspond to the cyrillic ones. So when you write cyka, you're not writing сука, you're writing кйка. It's like writing РЕСТОРАНТ in English as "PECTOPAHT". It doesn't say restorant, it says пехтопахт.
I don't know if it matters, but the k's are different.
k - Latin,
к - Cyrillic
No, it's сука as in "suka", but non-cyrillic speakers write cyka in latin letters, which really just says кйка.
It's a bot, man.
Literally nobody writes “suka”. Non- Cyrillic users write “cyka” too
It's a bot.
Oh oops didnt see that
CaN YoU TrAnSlAtE aRaBiC ?!?!
Because Russians are the most well known (and probably most numerous) people that use the Cyrillic alphabet. So, it's not really surprising.
I mean its still ignorant. Thats like thinking every asian language is chinese
The chinese would beg to differ.
It's ignorant, but someone from Serbia could be forgiven for thinking that, say, [chu nom](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%E1%BB%AF_N%C3%B4m), or [kanji](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanji) writings are Chinese... and those come from much larger countries than Serbia.
Looking at the Wikipedia pages those actually are Chinese characters 😂😂 but I get your point.
I speak and write Russian to a relatively high level, but it's very apparent to native speakers that I'm not a native speaker, but when non natives see my communicating in Russian, they think I'm a native Russian and make all sorts of stupid vodka cyka blyat jokes. It's so damn annoying tbh.
Hey, they even ask if you write in Greek. At least they are right with the alphabet in your case.
Nothing wrong with being Russian
And when they use D for A.
How do you talk using Cyrillic?
Just talk in Serbian.
And with this i will now write my exams in cyrillic turkish because i wanna mess with my teachers
It’s alright guys. We are here. Italian instead is always mistaken for French or Spanish (mostly by americans)
Americans mistaked America for Canada when they were asked "what country is this?" and the picture showed USA just upside down. If they can't recognise their own country that they like to say is the best and the only country that matters y'all are actually very lucky.
I talk in Cyrillic too.
Can confirm, I hate this
lmao I'm totally guilty of this
Some Central Asians got so tired of it that they straight up switched lol
Damn, i must really be russian
cuz your opinion don't mean shit
