Inscriptions as Evidence for Language and Dialect in Ancient Macedonia

Last Saturday, Daniel Tompkins started an interesting discussion on the Classics-L list by asking:

What was the language of the ancient Macedonians? … I’d be very interested in hearing about epigraphic remains in geographic Macedonia, and in analyses of them, that might have a bearing on this question.

He’s had several helpful responses, but CurEp readers may have more to add (or may be interested in some of the sources and secondary work cited already). To see replies, select “next in topic” on the Classics-L archive page.
