What are Albanians - illyrians; thracians; dacians ?
Where did they come from?
Why is their language so unique?
>>
first google, then ask (sorry!)
thracians. the larger "family" that dacians where a part too. so, today, they are more related to romanians then with any other populations in the area, that came under slavic influence (see macedonians for example). hope that was helpfull. for more info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albanians

Geographically we can assume theyre illyrians AFAIK, and since their language is a special snowflake I'm guessing its a Thracian language. Truly the Albanians are the only natives to the balkans to survive.

They're mostly known for being thieves, both historically and contemporarely.

False. The majority of balkan people are descended from ancient groups who used to live there

Every day brings new proof that Hitler was the dumbest man in all of creation.

Is there any scientific evidence Albanians came from 'that' Albania on the Caspian sea?

also, fun fact:
Kosovo and Metohija (what is now 'Kosovo - the country') border is the last remaining border made by the Nazi Germany. Nazis divided all the territory they ruled over in arbitrary borders, communists for some reason made Kosovo the Autonomous Region based on that, and NATO promoted it to a state recently

Has he actually ever said anything about Albanians?

They came from an unknown ancient Balkan people. Albanians are clannish and used to live in remote mountains so their language was able to survive the influence of their more powerful Latin, Greek, and Slavic neighbors though I should mention that their is a lot of Latin in the modern Albanian vocabulary though the different pronunciation hides it.

There's no basis to the Caucasian Theory, it's obsolete.

Sure, but they're the only ones to retain their language or culture.

Although the amount of pre-Greek substratum and the fact that ancient Greek religion was easily 50% pre-Greek is worth consideration. Too bad nothing of note survives of pre-Greek peoples on the mainland.

They are descended from Southern inner Illyrian tribes.

They came from Inner Albania and parts of southern Serbia and Northern Macedonia

It's the last surviving member of the Illyria branch of the Indo-European languages. While the Northern Illyrians of modern day Croatia and Bosnia would have been Romanized/Slavicized and the coastal southern Illyrians would have been Hellenized, the inner Illyrians would have been both isolated and or autonomous from centralized rule.
As the Slavic tribes moved in and intermixed with the Northern Illyrians the southern ones would have migrated yo modern day Albania, Kosovo, and Northern Macedonia

Has anyone tried learning Albanian?

>>302790
They're language is not confirmed to be illyrian because we know too little of illyrian (they didn't preserve their history well) but they are the most likely candidate of illyrian ancestry both in language and ethnicity. Thracian and dacian also show a faint link.
