Grammatical Rules That Make Albanian Unique

Grammatical rules that make Albanian unique

  • Alphabet: Albanian alphabet has 36 letters. Albanian has some graphemes like or and pronunciation rules that you need to know before you learn grammar rules. The process is simple, but you have to learn it.
  • Irregular verbs: Some verbs like jam (to be) are wrong and have special conjugations. This means that the standard rules for verbs don’t apply to them and you have to remember all their unique forms.
  • Dialects: The two most common dialects, Gag and Tosk Albanian, have several different rules and conventions. Suppose you want to speak Albanian with local people from another region. In this case, you may have to adjust to different conversation rules depending on which part of Albania you are in
  • Contractions: Like English, Albanian uses auxiliary verbs in verb contraction. For example, “I don’t know” would become “S’e di” while “I don’t know” would become “Nuk e di”.
  • Small Words: Albanian uses several diminutive words to form compound forms. For example, definite articles, indefinite articles, articles that change verb tenses, articles that change noun tenses, and many other one- and two-letter words can change the meaning of entire phrases or sentences.
