The colors in Macedonian....black, white, yellow, blue, green, red, brown, gray, pink, violet and orange....







So,
the color бело (white)
in male genere will be бел
in female gender will be бела
in neutral gender will be бело
in plural (for male, famale and neutral) will be бели

the same is for all the colors

Here are some examples:
Бела кола - White car (The noun 'car' is in female gender in Macedonian, so the color white will be Бела)

Црвен автобус - Red bus
(The noun 'bus' is in male gender in Macedonian, so the color 'red' will be Црвен)

Сиво маче - Grey kitty
(The noun 'kitty' is in neutral gender in Macedonian, so the color 'grey' will be Сиво)

Црни кондури - Black shoes
(The noun shoes is in plural, so the color black will be Црни)


So here is the rule, lets take the color 'blue'
Син - for male gender
Сина - for female gender
Сино - for neutral gender
Сини - for plural

The same goes for all the colors!

    I just found your website. I am moving to Skopje in a few weeks and am eager to learn all I can. Question: how do I know how to pronounce the words?

    my husband is from macedonia, and i am from Michigan, USA. im so frustrated that i cannot speak his language. it brings me to tears to think that our children may not be able to communicate with their grandparents because i cannot speak the language and he only speaks english when im around. i know the alphabet. colors, days of the week, animals and some phrases, but the grammer i cannot grasp. i NEED to learn. and i feel like i cannot. its very hard for me coming from a northern state and not having any experience with the language. there are no tutors in part of florida where i live, my husband is fully fluent in both language, ienglish and macedonian. we are going to bitola next year and i am very frightened. i need him to teach me, but it seems we never have any time with our work schedules, im embarrassed i cannot speak my husbands language. please, do you have any pointers on the best way for him to teach me. i have spent so much time crying over the fact that i cannot understand, when i could have been spending that time learning.
