The term "Macedonia" is sensitive; Greeks use it exclusively for Graeco-Macedonians, and it applies to several povinces within modern Greece. Slavo-Macedonians tend to use it exclusively for themselves, and some claim the Greek part of Macedonia ("Aegaean Macdonia") as esentially (Slavo-) Macedonian territory.
In English language, the term "Macedonia", in a modern context, is used to describe the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M.), the population majority of which is Slavo-Macedonian. On this page, the term is used to describe the history of F.Y.R.O.M., with the sole purpose to provide information.
