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 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 ( 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)
