Eneida Pema


In order to follow up on the trend and development of spoken language standards, we focused on their application in school. The study targeted the 6th, 9th, and 12th parallel classes of students. These stages of their linguistic education were chosen as particularly important for the closure of the relevant cycles. Given that the knowledge subject to this survey is very recent for this target group, its members are considered relevant for the research.  According to the new school curriculum, students have 53 hours of teaching across the first 9 grades and 14 hours throughout the middle education. However, the findings show a problematic situation. In addition to tests for the students of these classes and the findings collected, questionnaires were also developed for teachers of orthography. The teachers were asked about the level of coverage of orthography in our school texts with the new competence-based curriculum, and the methodologies used for our students to be able to absorb the standard. The results of the survey were of priority importance considering the latest trends they identify in the spoken language, as well as their extent in users, which is afterwards compared with the knowledge obtained through the texts. The research results are expressed in the form of suggestions to help studies by linguists as a modest contribution of practical value for further deepening our knowedge of language study as an evolving process.

Keywords:  standard language, language trends, competence-based curriculum, application of the norm.
