In this study of theoritical character, the sight is set on the most typical similtudes between Albanian and Romanian observed in the entire language subsystems. There turn out to be common features only for these two languages which are different from overall Balkan features (Balcan shpracbund). This article points out not only the parallelisms previously noticed by many linguists over centuries during the evolution of these two languages independently of each other, but also the latest common points recently observed. The causes of these phenomena are given at the end of the article.Similarties between Albanian and Romanian languages come as a result of Illyrians and Trachians being in contact for centuries before Slavs were established in Balkans.
