Macedonian language (македонски јaзик) 2

I am writing "Macedonian alphabet" (Македонска азбука) )

Macedonian alphabet has 31 letters, its phonetic is almost the same as Serbian and easy 100%, it is awesome for you )

letter | eg. pronunciation

А а | a as father

Б б | b as boy

В в | v as very

Г г | g as go

Д д | d as door

Ѓ ѓ | gi as give [n]

Е е | e as men

Ж ж | s as pleasure

З з | z as zebra

S s | ds as kids [n]

И и | e as he

Ј ј | y as yes [n]

К к | k as cat

Л л | l as lamp

Љ љ | lli as million [n]

М м | m as me

Н н | n as night

Њ њ | n as new or onion [n]

О о | o as not

П п | p as pen

Р р | r as room

С с | s as sun

Т т | t as tea

Ќ ќ | cu as cute [n]

У у | oo as food

Ф ф | f as fast

Х х | h as he

Ц ц | ts as lots

Ч ч | ch as chocolate

Џ џ | j as jungle [n]

Ш ш | sh as shop

Note:

Old and current Macedonian alphabet have a little defference:

old | current

Г' г’ | Ѓ ѓ

Дз дз | Ѕ ѕ

I i | Ј ј

Л ' л' | Љ љ

Н' н’ | Њ њ

К' к’ | Ќ ќ

Дж дж | Џ џ

Ѓѓ is pronounced as soft "g" in "give" (standard) or as between ґя and ґьa in Ukrainian (birth = раѓање [раґянє/раґьaнє]or in my dialect and some part of Macedonia is pronounced as closer to or softer Serbian ђ / đ (birth = раѓање [рађање]).

Ѕ ѕ is pronounced as "ds" in "kinds" or the same as дз in Ukrainian and Bulgarian, eg. star = sвезда [дзвезда].

Ј ј [downloaded from Serbian] is pronounced as "y" in "young or as й in Ukrainian and Bulgarian.

Љ љ [downloaded from Serbian] is pronounced as "ll" in million or as ля or ль in Ukrainian and Bulgarian, eg. love = љубов [любов].

Њ њ [downloaded from Serbian] is pronounced as "n" in new or as ня or нь in Ukrainian and Bulgarian.

Ќ ќ is pronounced as soft "c" in "cute" (standard) or as between кя (house = куќа [кукя]) and кь (night = ноќ [нокь]) in Ukrainian or in my dialect and some part of Macedonia is pronounced as closer to or softer Serbian ћ / ć (house = куќа [кућа]).

Џ џ [downloaded from Serbian] is pronounced as "j" in "jungle" or the same as дж in Ukrainian, eg. giant = џин [джiн].

It is not difficult, right? Who speaks Serbian, Ukrainian or Bulgarian, for him it is very easier )

Thanks! I'll write some questions once I have free minute , I was just able to glance quickly at work hehe

Also there might be an error by letter O, you have T (too) in the English equivalent
