Difficulties of Learning the Italian Article from the Albanian Student

Entela Mustafaraj

Abstract


The difficulties in the learning of the italian article is based on the fact that the category of the article results rather complex, as in the case of the italian article. A single morpheme has more than one function: gender, number and definition. Definite articles in albanian language practically don’t exist, and because of this, in the first phases of acquisition, albanian students hardly learn the usage of the article. On the contrary, it exists the indefinite article ‘një’ after the unit of the indefinite form. The present article aims to determine relative problems of acquisition of the article from the albanian learners with the principal aim to confront albanian and italian system according to their functions. The method of investigation is followed by a contrasting analysis at a linguistic level. The interest directed at the presentation of the most important phenomenon indicated during the acquisition of the article from albanian learners, brings into light some key points in errors, except their possible cases.
