The paper discusses some structures of the type (върви) подире ми, i. e. combinations of preposition/adverb + the short form of a dative personal pronoun. The structures occurred in some North-Eastern Bulgarian dialects (Moesian and Balkan) and partly in the Roupian dialects. Then they were introduced into the literary language in the 19th c. The earliest evidence for the presence of the phenomenon was dated back to the 18th c. but it may have originated much earlier. The structures подире ми and подир мене, which are identical in meaning occur in parallel. Similar structures exist in Romanian: asupra in mi, which is identical to asupra mea. They correspond to the Bulgarian върху ми and върху мене. Since the same phenomenon is also observed in Modern Greek, it may be considered to be a characteristic feature of the Balkan Sprachbund, concerning the status of the enclitic pronouns in the Balkan languages.
