Edmond Tupja: Albanian is in danger of disappearing like Latin or ancient Greek

Edmond Tupja has said that the Albanian language is one of the 3 oldest languages. Invited to Helidon Haliti's "Between two worlds" on RTSH, Edmond Tupja warns of the disappearance of our language as a result of globalization. "Albanian is a much older language. Unbiased linguists have said it. Even in scientific journals it is said that 3-4 were the oldest languages, because it gives you the key to the Indo-European languages. It also helps you understand past languages ​​that have disappeared. The Albanian language is much older, the third in the world for Indo-European languages, but to argue about this and forget where the Albanian language is going today?! Fight for origin, but the main thing is where are we going? Albanian words are dying. No one says "I was scared", "I was afraid" anymore, but "I was intimidated". There are many words in Albanian, dying words. We will become like Latin, no one will speak ancient Greek to us", he says.

For the well-known professor, globalization is one of the causes of endangerment of languages, including Albanian. "Albanian is not an easy language, neither is German because of the inflections. But we are eliminating curves. We take and use words without inflection. How possible is wealth, old languages ​​have the inflection. The most resistant peoples have this. Second, the structures of the Albanian language are disappearing. They started saying under the influence of English "This is not true". This is not true. Yes, it is not Albanian. Albanian says "This is untrue", "This is false". They throw them in the trash. What will happen to Albania? globalization is the disappearance of culture and customs. Marx said: "International will be the new world", "Global will be the new world", says Soros", underlines the well-known translator and writer Edmond Tupja.

Among the humor, Edmond Tupja does not hesitate to highlight a characteristic of Albanians. "I heard this from the mouth of Fatos Lubonja when he spoke about the mercenary of the Armenians. The kingdom of Catherine the Second of Russia faced several Mongol tribes. The Russian troops went to war and had mercenaries, among them mostly Albanian mercenaries. The war is over, which Caresha won, and she says to the bodyguard: "Go and bring me the leaders of the mercenaries".

He went and brought them. She saw them, counted them and said one is missing. Who is missing? Albanian? Go, he said, bring me here. He went there and came back shocked.

- Where is your boss? They are arguing because each one calls himself the leader", declared the writer Edmond Tupja.
