Characteristics of Common Turkisms in Albanian-Greek Dictionary in Folk Collection “Bëleta shqypëtare” of Thimi Mitko
AbstractTurkish language has been one of the most important sources of vocabulary enrichment for Balkan languages in the course of five-century long Ottoman rule. All Balkan languages, more or less, have given and taken from each other. Influence in these languages has been of local character and limited only in border-area dialects. Contrary to these influences, Turkish borrowings have been spread in a uniform way in all Balkan languages, and a considerable number of them can even be defined as Balkan Turkish words”. This is the fundamental right that encourages us to analyze in this work the common fund of Turkisms in Albanian-Greek Dictionary, accompanying the folk work “Bleta Shqyptare” (Albanian Bee) by Thimi Mitko.
