Summary/Abstract: Bulgarian Lexical Stock in a Multifactorial Macrocomparativistic ContextWhile scientific development is advancing with increasing speed, we are gaining access to fast-growing global databases and being presented with new opportunities for scientific cooperation. Applying this new information allows for a broadened view on word-stock in Europe and in the adjacent regions in general, and at the same time enables conclusions to be drawn in relation to the lexical stock of individual languages, such as the Bulgarian language. Illustrating this with some examples, we will attempt to highlight the potential of a multifactorial macrocomparativistic perspective in terms of the prehistory and history of the Bulgarian language. We have chosen the following examples for this purpose: Bulg. mùga, bàra, lòkva, nirèja, vъrbà, òrex, mòrkov, tìkva, rjàpa, kos, cik/čik.In this way, we aim to demonstrate, that Bulgarian lexical stock (the words of which, in many cases, have also been loaned to the Romanian language) is an important element of a large, global, archaic network which has expanded itself over space and a long period of time, illustrating important milestones in the development of humanity over several millennia and pre-dating the Slavic or even Indo-European context.
