The Mother of all Languages = Albanian.

Southern Illyria

Amazon (Ama-Zan).

The root 'Ama' is used for sister, and Zan, Zon, Zanë means 'goddess, 'nymph' in Albanian. Whereas 'Zot' means God and Za/Zë means Voice.

In the matriarchal time Amazon's didn't get married. They were our sisters. In the patriarchal times (Iron period), they startet to get married and became mothers. After the iron period, when indoeuropean languages got created, the root Am/Ma/Ama/Mama/Om/Mom/Mat/Mot.. was not used for sister as in the times of the Amazonas, but used for mother. Albanian is the only language, that still uses Mo-tër, because it used to be the name of our sisters in matriarchal times when the Amazonas (female warriors from the Pelasgian Era) didn't get married and were called holy sisters (Ama-Zon).

'Mother' means in Albanian Nana/Nenë/Nona. It's incredible to see where this word comes from. It came out of a basic number. Number Nine (9). Nine in Albanian means Nana/Nenë/Nonë. After nine moons (months) of pregnancy, a female becomes a Nana. [Në nentën muaj] [in the ninth month].

Hana means moon in Albanian. Nana means mother. The Pelasgians used to believe that the moon is our mother and the sun stands for father.



The veneration of this well-known goddess of the earth, with her mystery plays in Eleusis, was also quite common in Illyria. Her name has to do with the Albanian word dhe, earth. Demeter, also called Damater, is thus literally Mother Earth, what describes exactly her role. It also corresponds to the Illyrian myth of creation, where the Earth as the basis of life gives birth to everything.

There is an inscription found near Plovdiv, Bulgaria, dedicated to Demeter, which, according to the albanologist Eqrem Çabej, can best be explained by means of the Albanian language derived from the Illyrian. It is a formula of Demeter’s cult, the cult of the Earth seen as universal mother, and means: Earth, hold me / hold on to me! I invite you to try out this part of spirituality rooted in ancient Albania. Pronounce or sing these magical words, if possible outside, in touch with Mother Earth. Use it as a prayer or a mantra, as a guideline of your meditation, in order to come back to earth from your spiritual flights or when you are stressed, in order to feel better that we all are a part of this globe and to feel the security and power that emanates from the Earth. Be careful: these words may have strong effects. The ritual words of Demeter’s cult are: DA DALEME.

Mankind and Mother Earth: a narrative history of the world Arnold Joseph Toynbee. Oxford University Press, 1976: "Mother Earth has not engendered life by parthenogenesis. Life has been begotten on the biosphere through the fertilization of Mother Earth by a father: the Pharaoh Akhenaton’s Aton, the sun-disk, who is “the Unconquerable SUN”, “Sol Invictus”, of the Illyrian Roman Emperors from Aurelian to Constantine the Great".

�Democratization in the Balkans: prescription for a badly scarred body politic: Richard P. Farkas: UPNE, 2007:
"Pharaoh" comes from the Illyrian language and means: "our stock, our lineage". = "Fara jone".

Albanian is the oldest language in Europe. It's the mother of Latin and Greek. Albanian is a cosmic language and totally unique, and at the same time it is the only language, that keeps the other languages alive.

The region what is still inhabited by Albanians today, was part of all these periods:
• Old Europe : Paleolithic and Mesolithic (fully tribal hunter-gatherers; pre-Indo-Europeans)
• Middle Europe : Neolithic (Vinca, LBK, etc.) (adoption of agriculture and transition to civilisation; spread of Indo-Europeans)
• New Europe : Bronze and Iron Ages (Corded Ware, Battle-Axe, Kurgan) (full establishment of early civilisation; predominance of Indo-Europeans)


Albanian is the only Indo European language that has preserved the archaic structure of proto Aryan language. Albanian adjectives and ordinals come after the stressed nouns. The law formulated in 1892 by J. Wackernagel, according to which unstressed parts of the sentence tend to occupy a position after the first stressed word normally situated at the beginning of a sentence qualifies Albanian as the oldest living Indo European language.

In Albanian and in the Basque language, words were created in the territories of primitive Europe, long before the standard indoeuropean languages exited. So they were not included in the later indoeuropean vocabulary. The words are considered extremely ancient.

The Albanian Language preserves many cosmic words, the weekdays are cosmic, names are cosmic and natural and always related to planets, Mother Nature and even to inorganic nature.


Albanians are survivors. AT
Other examples:

p[at]er - Mycenaean

t[at]ang - Filipino
ph[át] minh - Vietnamese

The Aborigines of the world:

"First, it contained populations in the south and west Europe, who, being other than Indo-European, took the appearance of being aboriginal. Some of them were extinct. Others, however, survived. The Basks of the Pyrenees did this. So did the Albanians of Albania".

"These survived, because the inaccessible nature of their areas had preserved them".

"They survived, because woods and mountains had been to them what the cold of the Arctic Circle had been to the Laps, and his swamps and fens to the Finlander".

"They survived to suggest to ethnologists of the nineteenth century a time (long anterior to the dawn of history) when a complex series of kindred populations was continuously spread over all Europe, from Albania to Finland, from Spain to Scandinavia".


F. Ritter von Xylander (Die Sprache der Albanesen oder Schkipetaren, 1835), has elucidated this subject, and established the principal facts upon a firm basis. An account of the positions at which Xylander arrived will be found in : Prichard (The Physical History of Mankind, vol. iii. pp. 477-482).

F. Ritter von Xylander (Die Sprache der Albanesen oder Schkipetaren, 1835

“Words of Albanian language, without substantial changes and partly from the root, we also found in other languages, as in the ancient Greek, new Greek, in Latin, in Romanian languages, in old and new German, Swedish, Danish, English, Slavic, Persian, Arabic, Celtic, Basque and ancient Indian language.

The extension suffix node and its more developed flexion, more than in Basque, Icelandic, Swedish and Danish, is not found in any of those languages that have influenced later on Albanian.

Compliance of Albanian with Persian and Sanskrit show about communion and direct than the intermediate relationship, common relations with the trunk than with the people who show up later in history … ”

The Swadesh lists used, the words that are compared, are hypothetical for languages older than the first written examples and Tischler's treatment work has to be read in context. The oldest written texts that we have of any indo european language are in the Hittitie language and preserved because they are on clay tablets.

Mallory, who references Tischler in 1973 writes in 1999:

"After over 150 years the search for the homeland of the Indo-Europeans (IE) has still not achieved the type of solution that commands more than either partisan support or acceptance (often uninformed) by those wishing to defer to whatever ‘experts’ with whose works they have come into contact. That the homeland has been discovered there can be no doubt as it has been sought anywhere from the North to the South poles and from the Atlantic to the Pacific (Mallory 1973). Temporally, it has been located anywhere between 80,000 BC (Neanderthals) and c. 1600 BC (the expansion of chariot warfare from eastern Anatolia)."

Much work has been done since Mallory wrote that in 1999 but his publication given in the link below is worth reading to familiarise the non specialist with methodology.

The homelands of the Indo-Europeans JAMES P. MALLORY

Warnow's phylogenetic tree of indo european languages for example dates Albanian a few centuries after Hittitie and has it branching off the line that is to eventually become germanic at 2000BC. This particular methodology uses a modified Swadesh list but also compares other words in one language which have become used in another language through contact. If you look at the tree, Albanian and Hittitie, according to this method, have not had any contact since the original PIE homeland which they date to 4000BC.

There are several methods and computations, Gray and Atkinson are well respected researchers too with varying results. It is not wise to read one method, especially something as old as 1973, and assume it to be the last word.

I found words similar to Portuguese
In Romanian - mamă

Nana in Portuguese means to sleep

mainly Portuguese parents use these words for their children when they are small (Nana Nanar) sleep dormir )

the word Nono in portuguese represents 9

With all my respect I can hardly believe it, but on the Portuguese language it is from Latin Greek Hebrew Arabe, as we have many African words in Portuguese Portuguese colonies as Portuguese has words from Malaysia

Word Bunda is Angola
Word Jangada is Malaysia
How many more words
Your post is interesting.

It's truth that there's no language similar to Albanian. Albanian language is also divided into two main dialects. These dialect are called Gheg and Tosk. The river Shkumbin is dividing these dialects. Gheg dialect is spoken in the northern part of Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia, while Tosk dialect is spoken in the southern part of Albania. Standard Albanian is based on Tosk dialect I guess and it's portrayed as more sophisticated dialect though the most historical and literary works are written in Gheg dialect. The regime of Enver Hoxha has used more Tosk dialect.

Just because Albanian has some pre-IE substrate words, that makes Albanian Proto-IE? Every IE language family has those.

Anyways, the examples you gave have cognates in other [extinct] IE languages. Albanian krip is cognate to Sanskrit śíprā and Albanian ri is cognate to Old English earu.

So while those may have been bad examples and Albanian actually does have pre-IE substrates, so do other other language families such as dog, bear, chicken, and beer in Germanic languages, which are pre-IE substrate words in Germanic.

The Albanian motër is cognate to the English mother and the Albanian nënë is cognate to the English nanny.

The word for 'salt' does sound similar in European languages, but the word for 'salt' in Indo-Iranic languages is completely different. Albanian is nothing unique.

Italy, Lago Maggiore

Between Southern Italy and Albania there is a long relation [also linguistic].

There are regions of Italy where Italians talk Albanian [arbëreshët].

This said, as for I know it's a Indo-European language and considering where Albania is, it wouldn't be so odd to imagine that proto-Albanians played a certain role in the transmission of the proto-Indo-European languages to the European continent.

Please elaborate how exactly is it keeping the other languages alive?
I wasn't aware they were dying.
