Development of Standard Albanian after the Second World War

Manola Kaçi


Standard Albanian and its development are widely treated and discussed issues. As already known, the efforts to create this linguistic variant have been relatively early, even though tougher debates have emerged mainly over the 1944-1956s. This period coincides with two important and popular sections of 1952, in which took place a lot of polemics about the standard Albanian. The study aims at presenting an overview of some of attitudes toward standard Albanian version during the period of 1944-1956s. Another aim of this study is to clearly reflect the fact that, even before 1944 was spoken and taken concrete decisions (even by the state itself in 1923), in creating the standard based on the literary dialect of Elbasan, in these sessions this idea was completely rejected. During the discussions is clearly visible the attitude held on literary Tosk and the reasons given to why this linguistic option should constitute the basis for the creation of future Albanian standard. These attitudes constituted the "path" in which the Spelling Congress would walk further.
