Foreign Words in Textbooks

Elona Limaj


Study on the presence of foreign terminology in the Albanian language includes a wide gamma of issues. In this work, I would like to focus on problem of use of foreign words in textbooks, as an issue directly affecting the general education of youth. Based on legal norms in force, textbooks in the entire Albanian territory should be written in literary language, but, it is noted that our textbooks are full of international and non-international foreign words or foreign words that have their own equivalent in Albanian language. The object of this study were the textbooks of Albanian elementary and high school education, in which is also felt the presence of foreign words. Meanwhile, language policies should focus on enrichment of the pupils and high school students’ vocabulary and difficulties in this respect.
Keywords: foreign terminology, textbooks, enrichment of language, language policies.
