    Are Tosk and Gheg very different dialects and how so? Do you have problems understanding each other? I'm curious
    No. Difference does not go up to that level

    Difference is more pronounced in Grammar. The difference is more pronounced in suffixes.

    This Gheg example is spoken in northern albania and montenegro, while the gheg spoken in Kosovo is a bit different.


    The difference between Kosovo albanian and the one spoken in southern albania is like Swedish vs Norweigan

    There is regional differences, even FYROM Albanians sound a bit different from Kosovars especially those from Gjakova.

    There are similarities, but we do not treat it in that way (problematic) the issue of dialects. We consider them like national wealth.
    Standardisation has received more from Tosk dialect but has not ruled Gheg dialect.

    The biggest differences between Tosk and Gheg is that Tosk there was a rhotacism in Tosk and some grammatical features such as the lack of an infinitive in Tosk.

    An example of the aforementioned rhotacism, the first being Gheg and the second Tosk: mni->mri (meaning wrath, anger). In Gheg there's the infinitive such as 'me punue' (to work) - Tosk lacks that, instead it uses finitives.

    This site has some general information on the Albanian language, and there's a lot of recordings to listen to there - including Arbresh, Arvanite, Ukranian Albanians, Arbanasi (from Croatia), Bulgaria and Turkey. Additional information on Albanian grammar.

    It doesn't sound Turkish at all ! Clear your ears people !
    It sounds unique, the sounds are close to Serbian & Greek, and maybe a little bit Ossetian.
