The linguistic wealth of the Albanian language is not only an expression of it standard version. Its dialects are also part of its wealth, as it is the case with any other languages. Each dialect includes important and specific lexicological and linguistic elements, which make it important to do some research. The Tosk dialect, as a dialect of the Albanian language, is particularly important. It includes precious elements, such as the spoken çam dialect of the town of Konispol, whose research would enrich the Albanian language. Thus, the characteristics of the spoken language of Konispol in this article are only a part of this wealth. As any other dialects, the Konispol’s one includes certain characteristics, such as phraseological units, whose research is of interest for linguistics. The article addresses this dialect from several perspectives, identifying the large linguistic assets it contains. The article addresses the linguistic and lexicological treasure of the spoken language of Konispol, which is a subdialect of çam, both belonging to the Tosk dialect.

Keywords: dialect, subdialect, Tosk, çam, Konispol, lexicology, spoken, etc.
