Monika Hasani


The poem "Songs of Milosao" is important not only for its literary value, but also linguistic. Within verses of poetry finds the typical morphological features of idioms Arbëresh, merged with the efforts of a researcher as Girolamo de Rada with dedication and absolute responsibility to submit forms and expressions best Arbëresh the Italian language. So based on the research we have done in the study of morphological features work Arbëresh see the De Rada such as the dominance of structural elements and basic phonetics matched with Tosk dialect, where there exist verbal forms Gheg. Among the innovations typical idioms Arbëresh arising in the form of poem distinguish the present time the way indicative mood, which the De Rada in comparison to today's Albanian distinguished firstly, the reduction in the use of the suffix-th as verbal termination, which is a phenomenon developed after separation of the speech Arbëresh the parent trunk. Meanwhile the conservative grammatical forms which are stored in criminal distinguish itself forms the third time singular imperfect indicative mood way to ending Ney, who appears the same as the Chameria (which is considered as one of the most conservative dialects of the Albanian language). Given the poem "Songs of Milosao", we can say that Arbëresh discourses are coated with dialectal variety, divided into two main components: archaism and innovation.
