Albanian is spoken by some six million people in Albania, Kosovo, Serbia and Montenegro, and western Macedonia. Albanian has two main dialects which are not mutually intelligible: Tosk and Gheg. The country's Shkumbini River has served as the geographical boundary seperating these two language forms with Tosk speaking populations living south of the river and Gheg being spoken to the north. Ancient Greek and, with the expansion and influence of the Roman Empire, Latin have had major influences on the development of the Albanian language. Another source of the Albanian vocabulary have been the Slavic languages, particularly Bulgarian. As is true of all Balkan languages, the rise of the Ottoman Empire afforded heavy borrowing from the Turkish language as well. Albanian is today the only representative of a unique branch of Indo-European languages whose pre-Roman Balkan ancestry remains unclear. The Albanian alphabet is comprised of 36 letters and is normally written in Latin script.
