Summary/Abstract: The offered study is one of many in the long line of the original scientific works through which the author presents to the cultural and researching public a very significant issue of the Macedonian onomastics, anthroponomy and toponimy, which at its basics contains lexemes with the Bosniac sign. It is based on the long-term empiric research. Its results sufficiently testify to the almost two century long existence of Bosniacs in Macedonia, who stayed there when they had been on their way to Turkey leaving their motherland in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sandzak and other places. Numerous onomastics testify about tiresome emigration existence and about the survival of the Bosniacs on Macedonian soil, but also about the process of their consecutive transfer into inner parts of the Ottoman Empire and the present day Turkey. This study prefers to be an introduction to the complex issue of the historic existence and the survival of the Bosniacs on the Macedonian soil (1878-2008). This research characterizes the author’s approach to the long line of unpublished historic sources from which the essential references offered originate.
