Summary


STANDARD LANGUAGE AND IDEOLOGICAL SHADOWS: ALBANIAN AT A CROSSROADS
Any ideological background of the standard language has its own way of perceiving the writing, the meaning and the word values. On the other side, every era forget its own discourse, and the first task that a new ruling class embarks on is to ‘overthrow’ the previous discourse in order to introduce a discursive order, which, of course, comes into being as a part of the ideological interests derived from the policy of language. The current standard Albanian variety has experienced the same route, overturning the previous established discourse until 1972, in arbitrary ways that any standard is inclined to follow. Nowadays, the Albanian standard language stands obviously in disharmony with the pre-maturated, pre-standardised - before 1972 - natural state. However, despite tendencies to qualify it as the truest language piedmont, it remains just one of the many language varieties. Consequently, the ideologically proclaimed as true language has much narrower impact than proclaimed, 45 years onward from the Albanian Orthography Congress of 1972, the standard Albanian variety, or the Unified Language (UL), as the linguists of the former communist system used to dub it, remains a new language, or official language (Orwell, 2005) characterised by a new word register, morphology and word order embodied as a representative discourse. (p. 299). However, the ideological shadows of this discourse couldn’t cover the rich arch from the dialects which remains vivid today; with the aim of prospecting a new face of the standard language by adding to many ignored sources still alive in the language of dialects and in the idiomatic discourses. A new policy of language is imminent.
