Only to give you guys an idea of what it means to have to discuss with such individuals:

A well respected Arbereshe (Italian Albanian) professor of Albanian language in the university of Calabria, Gianni Belluscio, states clearly that Illyrian could just be theoretically one of the many possible ancestors of Albanian, but nothing certain can be told.

Put it in [05:40]

Gianni Belluscio – Pseudoalbanologjia sot

And our "arnavut damari" here is certain that Albanian descends from Illyrian …

In [06:13] he calls Eric Hamp "the prince of Albanology", because the guy has made the study of the albanian language both methodical and scientific.

After 50 years working on the Albanian language, the "prince of albanology" has concluded that the linguistic ancestors of the Romanians spoke proto-albanian before their latinization in the banks of the Danube.

He even thinks that the Albanians were "well integrated" in the Byzantine society, when they were not even Orthodox and they allied themselves with the Normans in almost every Byzantino-Norman war.

Some centuries later, the "Albanian-Slayer" Thomas Preljubović Palaiologos, was punishing with "rhinotmesis/rhinotomy" (nose cut) every Vlach or Bulgarian who would ally himself with the Albanian besiegers of the city of Ioannina. The Greek inhabitans of the city clearly write that thye "loathed" these albanian "pigherders" and they describe them with every possible insult they can come up with … and this "arnavut damari" here thinks that they were "well integrated".

For the record:

So now, tell me you all fellow posters and readers is Theophylact of Ohrid right or wrong when he describes guys like him as "sheep-pelt stinking dirty and nasty barbarians" who are even worst that the "Heathen Cumans" who at that time were besieging Vidin:

"Arnavut damari" … as if I'm discussing with Momčila the "Bulgar-Albanito-Vlach".
