Issues of Treatment and Use of Periods with Dependent Consequential Sentences in the Standard Albanian Language
This paper is focused in the period with dependent consequential sentence in the Albanian (standard) language, as is has
been expressed in the second volume of the “Grammar of Albanian Language” (Syntax), publication of the Academy of Sciences of
Albania, or in some other normative work. Considering it by the viewpoint of the language culture, we are of the opinion that some
constructions of foreign source must be left out of the syntactic norm or must get limited in their use, eg. “Është shumë e mirë, për të
qenë e vërtetë”, which seems to sound unnatural, or the subtype with the connection në mënyrë që and predicate as a verb in the
indicative mode. On the other hand, we are of the opinion that in the written discourse, especially in the publicity style or in the media
language in general (including movies' or documentaries' translations from foreign languages), must be used more intensively the
consequential periods faced more often in the popular language or in the spoken discourse, such as those with the dependent sentence
being connected to the main one through the connection që with a commonly connected word or not. We think that this would not only
bring the written variation nearer to the spoken variation of the Albanian standard language, but it would also put one more stone in the
walls of the “castle” of the Albanian syntax language.
