A derogatory word which modern Greeks use as a an insult to the Republic of Macedonia on a political and social level. Not only is it racist and disrespectful but it is incorrect.
Little do most Greeks know, but when Greece forcefully renamed all of the Macedonian placenames in northern Greece (their Macedonian region) in the 1920s. They renamed one village to "Skopia", yet they use this as an insulting term for the Republic of Macedonia.
Modern GRK: So where are you from?
Modern GRK: Which one?
Mak: The republic
Modern GRK: Oh so you're from Skopia.
