Why are you removing information ?

Like I said, you put non-etymology stuff in the etymology, and these can't be synonyms as Albanian does not use the Latin script. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:55, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
Albanian use latin but semantic is semitic (hebrew arabian) and root greco-Cyrillic 94.108.193.218 11:42, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

kokë by JorisvS[edit]

I noticed that you replaced the pronunciation of kokë [qɔq] by kokë [kɔkə], you are diminishing variety of sound of Gheg people (we use nasal, uvular plosive, [e]), yes there is uvular in Gheg albanian because we use sound Qaf of the Quran like the Arab, I'm Gheg muslim, I'm not a tosk orthodox, using only kappa instead of removed Qoppa...

Check kuran [quran], kandar & kafaz (SQ_Arabic_Derivation), I said before K in albanian have two valor [k & q] like E [e / ɛ] & O [o / ɔ], and we use K [q] for Arabian word using Qaf ق [q]. Gmazdên 17:45, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Interesting, that would make Gheg the only European language to use a uvular plosive (save for Caucasian languages). Can you point me to audio/video files in which Gheg is used? I would love to hear it for myself. --JorisvS 16:50, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Afrim Muqiqi, Adem Ramadani, Ramadan Krasniqi, Duli, Bekim Kumanova, Ilir Shaqiri, Mentor Kurtishi, Pandora, ERA TV (mk), RTK TV Sat, and many others (albasoul.com). The best word to use what I describe is Kalê [qalɛ] who means illuminate... I suggest you, to search for an ancient albanian dictionary using Ottoman Arabic script, like that you will see what word use Kaf ك [k] & Qaf ق [q]. I'm searching for such book, to complete info in Wiktionary by checking ancient writing system, I would like to add Greek Script version to, to differentiate, Epsilon & Êta and Omicron & Ômega in albanian word... And I probably have to go in Albania to get one to scan & add in Google Book or else... Gmazdên 17:47, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

There is an another people who use Q [q], the Ashkali (Roma, Kale) who live in Balkan... Gmazdên 17:53, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Can you understand these Ashkali when they speak? --JorisvS 18:08, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

No, and it's why I beginned to make research with Babylon 8 & Lingvosoft, to translate those term, those Ashkali, Malok & Majub, have really strange language, their language is from various source and from others space. But still I love listening their song, search Cita_Amza Sevcet, Dzemail or Nehat_Gashi on Youtube... Gmazdên 18:43, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
