Macedonian: важи


Senior Member
I'm curious about the word важи, I dont know if this is typically Macedonian, but it is from Macedonians that I've heard it. It seems to mean something like "all right" or "ok" or perhaps "I see", like you agree or acknowledge something or someone.

Am I wrong?

    Yes, the typical usage is "all right" or "ok", either as confirmation or a question. The word is also used in Bosnian/Cratian/Serbian, it is the 3rd person singular present of verb важити/ važiti, to be valid.

    It is of course also a word in Bulgarian, but it isn't used to say OK. It means to be valid. OK meaning seems to be akin to Spanish vale.
