THE GREEK CONFUSION WITH LABELING OF THE MACEDONINAS IN OTTOMAN EMPIRE
In the first part of this paper we are keeping the attention at the process of forming the Greek nation-state, with focus on the self-identification on the population of the greek state, with the dilemma and the transformations in the period when the Greek national name was constitutionalised. Then, in short version, we will focused on the politics of the Greek state regarding the Ottoman Macedonia, and then we are going to put an accent about the thesis which is the goal of research of this paper. We will make a chronologicall view of the naming of the Macedonians from the view of the Greek state and the Greek institutions for propaganda in Ottoman Macedonia. We will make and effort to analise the process of the transformation of the naming, which is in compat with the Greek national interests and the changing of the politics for this question after the forming of the Egzarhy (1870) and the Bulgarian state (1878).
