Resumen

The article is dedicated to the research of riddles from the oral tradition of the Macedonian Sephardim, specifically the corpus collected by the American linguist Max A. Luria in Monastir in 1927 (published in 1930). The analysis is focused on various aspects of the riddle as a minor folkloric genre, the status of this genre in the Sephardic folkloric system, and the comparison of Sephardic riddles from Monastir with Serbian riddles (including Kosovo and
Metohija).
