The Academy, Volume 1‎ - Page 49
Literary Criticism - 1869

The Albanian tribes here probably represent part of the very ancient population, commonly known by the much-abused name " Pelasgian."

The great Pelasgian oracle of Dodona was in this country (probably near the Lake of Yanina ), and the apparent antiquity of the Albanian alphabet, the philological peculiarities of their language, and the character of some of the words, are in favor of this view.


The two main Albanian tribes are divided by the Egnatian Road , as the Illyrians and Epirots were in antiquity, and this adds to the probability that the same races inhabited the country then as now

CONCLUSIONS OF THE PELASGI AND THEIR MODERN ALBANIAN DESCENDANTS

From philological proofs, the authors deduce that the modern Albanian is essentially the older Pelasgic.

The Pelasgic races, the area they occupied, the language they used, the territories they invaded and conquered are dealt with;

and among other conclusions, it is maintained that at Troy, both the besiegers and the besieged were Pelasgic Tribes.

In the second part, the Homeric poems are traced up to Pelasgic effusions, originally sung by the bards attached to various chiefs:

their poems surviving as popular ballads were subsequently collected, collated and translated into Greek.

Traders of the Greek-speaking race are not referred to in the Homeric poems, nor in contemporary histories;

To constitute a good omen, the bird must fly from right to left. Lastly, not to needlessly multiply instances, Aristander predicts that Alexander, who was of the Shqiptar race, would be victorious, because he had seen an eagle fly from the Macedonian to the enemy's camp.(Plut. in Alex., Plin. 17, 25.)

It has been before remarked that the national name of the Pelasgic is Shqiptar — sons of the Eagle.

When the modern Greek state was formed, the Albanian-speaking population and its language were called Albanian, even if those Christian Albanians were considered an integral part of the Greek nation and had played a decisive role in the War of Independence between 1821-1828 (Bartholdy, 1993; Bickford-Smith, 1993: 47; Embeirikos, 1994; Vakalopoulos, 1994:243-249). However, the policy of the new Greek state was to Hellenize all the non-Greek speaking Orthodox populations within its, then limited, territory as well as in the territories of Epirus, Macedonia, Thrace and Asia Minor still under Ottoman rule, which were though considered as part of Greek irredenta; the other Balkan countries (Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, and later Albania) had also followed similar policies. As elsewhere in Europe, army and education were the most effective mechanisms of Hellenization, assisted by the judiciary system ready to denounce and punish all forms of behavior inconsistent with the state’s nationalist culture (Kitromilidis, 1990:38; Kollias, 1994).
They were not called them selfs as Albanians!! There is not any written proof even from the same albanophones Greeks of the period of Greek revolution and the sources that you mensioned have not any report like this!!!!!! In fact the Arbanites did not called them selfs at the period of 1821 not even Arbanites!!!Those albanophones cristians populations were calling as Turkalbanians or Arbanites the Muslims Albanians who were their worst enemies!!The hellenize of the language to non Greek-speaking but with Greek ethinc Id population, as you told us before, was something normal as the official language of the state was the Greek and the others dialects, like the Arbanites, the Vlacks and some slavic, were oral Dialects who those people were spoken becide the Greek language too!! Thats why those populations never demanded or asked or even worst angry with the full "hellenize" of the state! Because they consired as they confirm even now,(the arbanites and the Vlachs) that is was very normal cituation from the moment that they feeling Greeks and always were 2 languages speaking populations!!

It will be easier to confirm our opinion on the origin of Albanian Pelasgian, since this language is kept constant in his greatest traits over the centuries until today, according to historical facts.

As already predicted the German scientist Muller, Albanian will give us the key to the solution of several problems related to linguistic and ethnographic literature Greco-Latin.

Appointed Pelaka Skype or by Albanians living in Epirus, Albania, Macedonia and Italy, Arber by Albanians in Greece, this dialect is formed from a few thousand words and monosyllables bisyllabic, roots dry and arid without prefixes or suffixes some exceptions.

Excluding neopelasgian words, Latin or Greek, Turkish, Slavic or other, the skeleton appears in its nakedness idiom hard, almost eolodorien or wind, approaching all-in-fact of dialects in the epigrams etched old, or sung by the rhapsodies and Aedes oldest Greek.

http://books.google.com/books...

Page 49

Rhapsodies in Homer, despite all the corrections implied by the Athenians, we find many words in use among the Homeric Albanians, which argues for the antiquity of the Albanians.

http://books.google.com/books...

Page 57

The Albanians finally mourn their dead in the Homeric way women (date, the Albanian-oAoXu xXatmoi;, oXoXi5Ēo>), repeating the words izi, oļzi = black, unhappy.

Homer used this word once oizōc Curiously, the word zi, Zia returned to each moment in the archaic inscription found on Lemnos, cited by the Honourable Dr. Apostolides.

This word means in Albanian sepulchral still mourning and phrase na zia erd wind that we came into mourning.

What makes some scientists argue that the language of the inscription resembles Albanian, this relic of Pelasgian, especially as the island of Lemnos was home exclusively to the Pelasgians until the time of Miltiades, who occupied
Conclusion:

The inclusion of the island of Lemnos has been written in language Pelasgian, the Pelasgians were not completely absorbed and they are back with their descendants, shqiptar or Albanians, as well as history and linguistics, prove

What's interesting in that ?
Its true, we don't want "great albania", it is not our term.
We dont want lands which aren't ours, we dont need.
We want Natural Albania the territories which belong to albanians traditionaly and populary.
"great albania,Great serbia,great bulgaria, megallos ellada" are all communist terms that Tito made to create "big yugoslavia" which are used with nostalgic and love from serbia.
Serbia wants Great serbia,because they include territories they anexed when they got independence from ottoman empire.
