Political Comments

  • The Norwegian Language Debate. Written for the weekly JAVA Magazine in Kosovo. The JAVA magazine writes in the Gheg language that is based upon the northern Albanian dialect as opposed to the official Albanian written language. The official Albanian written language is widely perceived as being based primarily on the southern Albanian 'Tosk' dialect (where the Albanian communist leader Enver Hoxha was born). In Kosovo, the cultural differences between Albanians in Kosovo and Albanians in Albania is about to be acknowledged and a discussion about the written language used by Albanians in Kosovo is in the horizon. The process of developing the 'New Norwegian' Language in the middle of the 19th century in Norway has quite some smilarities to what Kosvo now might face. 26.12.01
