"The Latin influence over Albanian is of Eastern Romance origin, rather than of Dalmatian origin. This influence includes Latin words exhibiting idiomatic expressions and changes in meaning found only in Eastern Romance and not in other Romance languages.Adding to this the many words found in Romanian with Albanian cognates (see Eastern Romance substratum), it may be assumed that Romanians and Albanians lived in close proximity at one time"
Appearently we have.
The latin wich has big influence in the Albanian language, is the same as in Romanian. This latin does not exist in Dalmatian, therefor is was a complete different dialect in the coast.
