If a scholar studies the language that a particular writer uses, that implies that the scholar also endorses that writer`s work. The language itself is alive and just like anything that is alive; it can be subject to injuries and damages. Ismail Kadare is a visionary author who senses the danger that a language may encounter. That is the reason why he goes on a mission to protect and enrich the Albanian language with newly-formed words. Using almost each and every one of the suffixes and prefixes available in Albanian while applying the internal word-forming rules that the Albanian language dictates, Ismail Kadare has created a vast number of new words that carry an immense lexical and stylistic value, without being morphologically incorrect. In this paper we study Ismail Kadare`s newly-formed words using the suffix – shëm, thus offering our contribution to the studying of Ismail Kadare`s newly-formed vocabulary.

Keywords: Kadare, new words, word formation, suffix –shëm
