Linguists group Macedonian together with Bulgarian into the eastern group of the South Slavic languages, which diverge from the western group and partly from the other Slavic languages in a number of characteristics.

The great similarity to Bulgarian led many to hold that Macedonian was not a language in its own right, but a Bulgarian dialect without any independent literary Macedonian language; this approach is still widely followed in Bulgaria. In contrast, many Macedonians emphasise that Old Church Slavonic or Old Bulgarian originated in their region more than 1,000 years ago. These arguments have been used in competing territorial claims from Yugoslavia and Bulgaria.

Macedonian is spoken as a native language by about two million people, and most speakers consider themselves to be members of the Macedonian people. Almost 1.4 million of these speakers live in Macedonia, where it is the official language.

Smaller groups live in Albania, Bulgaria and Greece; the exact numbers are disputed due to classification problems and lack of accurate statistics. Linguists from the Republic of Macedonia classify the south-eastern Slavic varieties spoken in south-western Bulgaria as Macedonian, whereas linguists from Bulgaria, where Bulgarian is the standard language, classify the same varieties as Bulgarian. In the north-western part of Greek Macedonia has a minority that speaks the south-eastern Slavic varieties, which many Slavicists classify as Macedonian whereas others classify them as Bulgarian dialects. Macedonian standard language is unusual here, making them unattributable external dialects usually simply referred to as Slavic or as Slavo-Macedonian in Greece. There is a small minority of Macedonian speakers in south-eastern Albania.
