Actually, the base of Shqipo is a pure word dating back to the earliest and only (excluding Armenian)intact and singular language on the Indo-European language tree.

Yep, goes straight back to the root. I went up to our local univ library to see what I could find about the Albanian language and found one (1) book. I did check it out, but not every book speaks well, and this one was impossible. So, I remain ignorant, except for knowing that we amateurs are ignoring something important while we talk about Latin, Greek, and Celtic, among other popularly extinct languages. How can we possibly know what we say if don't know the root meanings of our words but just trace it back to French or Latin?
