Albanian is an family of related Indo-European languages spoken in Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Solvenia, Greece, Italy, parts of the former Republic of Yugoslavia and others. Albanian appears to be the sole modern survivor of its own subgroup, possibly descended either from Dacian or Illyrian. The two major subfamilies of Albanian are Gheg and Tosk which are reported to be mutually unintelligible. Within the Tosk subgroup are Arbëreshë, Arvanitika and Tosk, speakers of which are reported to have varying degrees of mutual intelligibility though there is some disagreement as to the degree.
