Conservation and Innovation Development to Some Ancient Dialects of Today Albanian

Edlira Troplini (Abdurahmani)


This paper will deal with the analysis of some typical early occurrences of a common physiognomy of some ancient Albanian dialects. It is not the first time that we deal with their study, but we always come forward new arguments in defense of the thesis, for the perception of conservative phenomena of these idioms before they disappear. Specifically we present some valuable generalizations and new analysis related thereto. On the other hand, will be served also some new arguments regarding phenomena mentioned for the first of us, and some other phenomena in our view that carry with them the shadow of doubt. Will also address the various out linguistic factors that have driven their preservative character. This is a qualitative paper based on direct interviews of the older generation, without compromising the younger generation, but the given examples specifically belong to the older generation dialect by approaching them with texts or documents of old Albanian, moving from one direction to another. This is done for the sole purpose, not merely the perception of conservation phenomena of these idioms before they disappear, but in order that the latter may serve as motivation for finding new arguments related thereto, or for the emergence of previously unexplored phenomena. We are dealing with a sociolinguistic work that is the fruit of a synchronic and diachronic analysis. Results of this study become evidence of linkages that exist between Sociolinguistics and history of the Albanian language, conservatism and innovation, thus preserving and continuing or the ongoing renovation from the other side. Idioms that have received in the survey are indicative of an early bilingualism by which time even starts the chronology of this phenomenon.
