Macedonian Articles

Learning the Macedonian Articles displayed below is vital to the language. Macedonian articles are words that combine with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Generally articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun. Examples are "the, a, and an".

Grammar Tips:

Definite Article:

Like in English, where we have only one definite article “the", in Macedonian it is same but the article changes in accordance with the gender of the noun.

-от, -ов, -он (masculine singular), мажот, мажов, мажон  (the man, this man, that man)

-та, -ва, -на (feminine singular) куќата, куќава, куќана (the house, this house, that house)

-то, -во, -но (neuter singular) детето, детево, детено (the child, this child, that child)

-те (ти), -ве (ви), -не (ни) (plural) куќите, куќиве, куќине (the houses, these houses, those houses)

The suffixes -ов, -ва, -во, -ве (ви) are used when the subjects (and persons) are near the speaker. Дај ми ја книгава - Give me this book.

The suffixes –он, -на, -но, -не (ни) are used when the subjects (and persons) are far from the speaker. Дај ми ја книгана - Give me that book.

Indefinite Article:

While we have (a / an ; some) in English as indefinite articles, we also have еден/една/едно; неколку in Macedonian.

In general, whenever (a, an) are used in English you don’t need to use (еден, едно) or (една) to say the equivalent in Macedonian.

Еден, една, едно are used as a substitution for a/an only when a/an are used with the meaning of "one".

The Macedonian equivalent of "some" is неколку.

 

книга (a book)

куќа (a house)

неколку книги (some books)

неколку куќи (some houses)

Example: Книгите кои ги имам се во куќа на еден пријател. (The books I have are in a house of a friend)


Here are some examples:
