This book deals with the historical development of the Albanian language
from prehistoric times to our days. The main focus of the book is the
reconstruction of Proto-Albanian, the analysis of its relations to its
ancestor, Indo-European, and its further change leading to Albanian in its
present form. The volume contains a detailed description of historical
phonetics and morphology of Albanian. The reader will also find important
data on the Albanian vocabulary in its historical development.
Together with the author's Albanian Etymological Dictionary, the present
book makes a powerful research tool important for Albanologists,
Balkanologists and historical linguists.
