Albanian, an Indo-European language, is spoken by about 8 million people living primarily in Albania and Kosovo as well as areas in the Balkans, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Greece. As for language characteristics, Albanian is unique in that it doesn’t belong to any other language families or branches. Though Albanian shares some similarities with Greek, Slavic and Germanic, it remains distinct. Albanian does have a lengthening of syllabic consonants also common to Slavic languages. Albanian remains a unique and somewhat exotic sounding language given its geographic locations.
