Ethnolinguistics Flow of the Dialectal Dictionaries

Përparim Fakaj, Suela Fakaj, Julian Fakaj


Ethnology is a branch of anthropology that analyzes cultures, so it is understandable and reasonable that during studies, to do the intertwining of methods and the ways of viewing it between different social sciences. The need for cooperation between ethnology and linguistics is based on the fact that "none of studies and knowledge can be understood outside the culture and the time in which they are presented, they are always part or expression of culture and time. From a careful observation of the reflected objects in the dialect dictionaries, we note that in the dialectal lexicon are reflected not only denotations and connotations values but also the ethnolinguistic ones. Through them, dialectical dictionaries connect us with a certain ethnography which with the values and fresh flows are distinguished with new words related to some lexical fields of the Albanians, such as: that ones related to flora and fauna, with material and spiritual culture, with habits and customs, etc. In particular, very interesting are the names of folk costumes of the provinces, which appear to us as rich and varied as they are valuable in the lexical layer, and also the explanations, data, and reviews about the social organization of the provinces. They are an indispensable asset to the Albanian language, which enriches further with another semantical lexicon the paradigm of these areas and expanding more information Albanian language to the world.

Keywords: ethnolinguistics, names the plant world, the folk costumes, reviews, social organization, linguistic information.
