Dorjana Klosi, Lulzim Hajnaj, Evis Celo


Albanian language and its components have always been in constant change. Economic and political issues, religious changes and life styles have affected language as well. Albanian standard language is trying to maintain a high profile for its users. However, it is facing an enormous linguistic change. Dialects, sociolects and idiolects are some of the main sources that affect and enrich language. How language and its components interact with each other? How are dialects, Geg and Tosk, represented on standard Albanian language? How is the actual linguistic performance in relation to linguistic contexts? At what extend are idiolects and sociolects represented at standard language? These and more questions are the center of our research paper.
