    Hello

    I was wondering what the difference between these 4 words are, when using them as the word "Almost" is.

    One of these words is translated to nearly. In english "nearly" and "almost" mean sort of the same thing, and "almost" is heard the most during everyday speech. Perhaps it is different in Macedonian, and "nearly" and "almost" cannot be used interchangably?

    Речиси, скоро, приближно and тукуречи are practically the same. I'm not familiar with комај.

    I found the word комај on makedonski.info, that is why I mentioned it. Perhaps it is a very unusual word.

    Thanks for the the help.

    Комај is a regionalism (used in Kumanovo, for example).

    I don't think there's much of a difference between речиси and тукуречи other than the former being more common.

    Приближно is best translated as "approximately".

    Most of the time "скоро" will translate to soon, "речиси" is almost, I'm not familiar with other two.
