‘The language we speak now contains in itself information about far remote past, including about the burning question of the lineage of Bulgarians. Everyone states that Bulgarian language is a Slavonic language. However, no one can deny that the grammar of modern Bulgarian differs sharply from the grammar of Slavonic languages. And in turn, it casts the shadow of suspicion on the generally accepted history of the Slav sea that assimilated some small band, which came from somewhere, and left no trace of this small band.
