The Dictionary of Three Languages by Gjorgji Pullevski (1822–1893) shows the political context and coexistence of Macedonians, Albanians and Turks in the territory of Macedonia. It also provides evidence of the awakening of the national spirit of Macedonian people. The dictionary has 190 pages in paperback. It gives words in Macedonian, Albanian and Turkish in three columns. Despite its orthographic errors, the dictionary provides a valuable source for studying of the evolution of the Macedonian language.
