it must be so frustrating to hear: ***so you guys use the russian alphabet?***


Da-Bum-Tss

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 ?"*


[deleted]

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.


Da-Bum-Tss

Geez i never thought from their perspective. I'm pretty sure there are some people who thinks they're Arab right?


Narwhalsareawasome

Yes, Iranians are believed to be Arabs by other people much more than Turks.


Da-Bum-Tss

Oh god i would be so pissed


DainichiNyorai

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!


Da-Bum-Tss

Actually i don't know much about it too. I usuallt research when i need.


zar4er

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.


ChillTCF

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


Amazing-Row-5963

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.


RammsteinDEBG

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.


CritSrc

Well that's a neat little myth you never hear in history class.


sebivaleriu

what are the other 4, i genuinely don't know?


zar4er

It was a figure of speech.


makahlj8

Perhaps the greatest contribution of Bulgaria to civilisation https://cdn.techmart.bg/assets/techmart/img/products/14693/image/%D1%80%D1%83%D0%B1%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%BE%201200w%20%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B8%D0%BD%D0%B8%D1%87%D0%B5%D0%BD_stuff_39467__pic1_1265599907.jpg Don't ask me what is this.


insomnia1914

Before clicking the link I was 100% certain I will be looking at this glorious invention.


katapultman

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.


Life_Of_Tuna

Well we did use it for a short while


greenwolfbg

American idiot: sO yOu ARe UsiNG ThE RUsSiaN AplHabeT? Me: КОЛКО ТЪП СИ ТИ БЕ ЧЕЛ ЛИ СИ ИСТОРИЯ HOW STUPID HAVE YOU READ HISTORY?


Dornanian

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


glogovachc

Moscow visits you


Dornanian

Well, it's better to visit Russia before Russia visits you, that's for sure. We've experienced it first hand.


No_Understanding_206

Because you chose «Da» instead of «Si»


Dornanian

Actually, Latin had no word for “yes”


F-Lexx

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"?


Dornanian

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.


zar4er

From Old or Middle Bulgarian, not Russian.


Dornanian

More likely known as Old Church Slavonic for anyone who isn’t Bulgarian


Keneifu

Honorary Slavs :) You would think the name ROMANia would be enough


Narayanchandra

I Thought that Romania was slav until 5th grade


F-Lexx

What gave you that idea?


Narayanchandra

Romania is located in east europe and that Romania once was a commie country


1st_Lt_Kowalski

Yes, but how often do you visit Moscow?


bestchips

It's barely visited by romanians.Plus most romanians despise Russia


RArchdukeGrFenwick

До сих пор, однажды - so far, only once in the city. Ukraine is closer.


justincaseonlymyself

Using an alphabet to talk has to be an interesting thing to do.


ScientificSerbian

The first thing that crossed my mind


memeoi

Could be talking online


LjackV

Isn't that still typing?


Spirta

There is an american action movie set in Belgrade. All the signs are in Russian. xD


PraviGitrog

I was so happy when I saw the signs in age of ultron were (mostly) in Serbian


Prazanfrizider

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.


Spirta

Can't really remember. It's at least 10 years old.


Pero_Bt

which one?


Spirta

Sorry, I really can't remember.


SemihDTR

I dontnspeak cryillic


[deleted]

Turkish is Latin, you speak Latin?


Commie_Vladimir

Nah bruh everyone knows Turkish is Arabic. Can you speak Arabic? /s


[deleted]

Bro really? Damn I went to the wrong school


Erkhang

Yeah, I and my brothers are speaking Arabic 😎😎


Narayanchandra

Can you speak Spanish and russish????????


Narayanchandra

Oh you are a commie you do speak Russish!!!!!!/s


lebokinator

How do you talk in Cyrillic alphabet though?


Immortal_Merlin

Let me demonstrate. #*FURIOUS_AK-74_AKIMBO_SHOOTING*


[deleted]

terrible


MagnetofDarkness

I'm still not convinced, do you speak Putin?


TeachersAreMyPets

no, they speak Stalin


justacupoftea99

hahahahaha lmaooo


BokaBurek

I always say basic things in cyrillic to assert dominance in games, never gets old.


Prazanfrizider

What do you mean by assert dominance?


gerginborisov

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”


Prazanfrizider

Oooh, that's interesting, thanks!


MrMcBobJr_III

Same, and to make friend with the actual russians


gerginborisov

Because they aren't taught where the Cyrillic was created and why.


jorothpr

And by who. Too many people think it was created by the Russians.


gerginborisov

It was created in Bulgaria by Bulgarian scholars under a commission of Tsar Simeon I


jorothpr

And if you tell this to some dumb fuck he will look at you and ask what Bulgaria is


[deleted]

[удалено]


gerginborisov

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.

Sufficient-Owl-7254

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.


Orgoth-the-fister

at the time they were Bulgarian tho.


HeliotropicJourney

Cyrillic? Don't you mean Russian hieroglyphics?


VasaLavTV

Cyrillic? Don't you mean the anti-american communist alphabet that replaces all A's with D's?


CritSrc

\>implying Greek letters are less hieroglyphical


MilomC4

И хаве а куестион фор Год...... Ваааааааааај


_orion_1897

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


SpogMotherFucker

Wtf I've never heard that before. I mean I don't live in Italy but still that is a very bizarre comparison


_orion_1897

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)


SpogMotherFucker

I understand where they are coming from even tho its very ignorant but still very weird.


Dornanian

That’s an interesting one for sure. I never heard it before


Imadethisat15minsam

Delete western spy


Donnie619

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.


snoozlsthesoviet

But are you?


zefkocovic

Why do Bulgarians use Russian alphabet? That's the question

ChillTCF

OmG YoU SpEaK CyrrIlIc oMG СуКа БляТь Edit: Fixed error


sukabot

>cyka сука is not the same thing as "cyka". Write "suka" instead next time :)


ChillTCF

Can you elaborate tho? I'm actually interested what the difference is


snoozlsthesoviet

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


ChillTCF

Yea but whats the difference between съка и сука you know


Zarzavatbebrat

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.


glogovachc

I don't know if it matters, but the k's are different. k - Latin, к - Cyrillic


Zarzavatbebrat

No, it's сука as in "suka", but non-cyrillic speakers write cyka in latin letters, which really just says кйка.


DrumuriSiPoduri

It's a bot, man.


anyaeversong

Literally nobody writes “suka”. Non- Cyrillic users write “cyka” too


DrumuriSiPoduri

It's a bot.


anyaeversong

Oh oops didnt see that


mertozbek12

CaN YoU TrAnSlAtE aRaBiC ?!?!


__sovereign__

Because Russians are the most well known (and probably most numerous) people that use the Cyrillic alphabet. So, it's not really surprising.


SirDoucheFace

I mean its still ignorant. Thats like thinking every asian language is chinese


Zekieb

The chinese would beg to differ. Also: /s


[deleted]

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.


BigDickEnterprise

Looking at the Wikipedia pages those actually are Chinese characters 😂😂 but I get your point.


noxhi

Are you?


degeneratefur

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.


Alector87

Hey, they even ask if you write in Greek. At least they are right with the alphabet in your case.


Bright_Ad3225

Nothing wrong with being Russian


MMajor99

And when they use D for A.


just_a_dude2727

Да


[deleted]

How do you talk using Cyrillic?


makahlj8

Just talk in Serbian.


Life_Of_Tuna

And with this i will now write my exams in cyrillic turkish because i wanna mess with my teachers


D49A

It’s alright guys. We are here. Italian instead is always mistaken for French or Spanish (mostly by americans)


Prazanfrizider

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.


CyrillicUser1

I talk in Cyrillic too.


SPARKY358gaming

Can confirm, I hate this


100dylan99

lmao I'm totally guilty of this


CuntfaceMcgoober

Some Central Asians got so tired of it that they straight up switched lol


JumpyWar

Damn, i must really be russian cuz your opinion don't mean shit
