Generative Grammar in Albanian Linguistics

Eljana Mosko

Abstract


Generative grammar was not part of Albanian linguistics until the beginning of the XXI century when it became the object of study in the works of some Albanian linguists. Research is focused in the three aspects of generativism – what constitutes the knowledge of language, how the knowledge is acquired and how the knowledge is put to use. Most part of the research focuses on syntax with regard to rules that will correctly predict which combinations of words will form grammatical sentences. Research is done in language acquisition as well (with regard to acquiring of Albanian language), which in a way or another fulfills the three aspects of generativism. The studies and the research are associated with the tradition of grammatical research initiated and inspired by the work of Noam Chomsky.
