Spelling-to-sound: ‹r›[edit]

Shouldn't ‹r› actually be /ɽ/? It does not sound like an alveolar tap, but like a retroflex flap.

Spelling-to-sound <gj> and q[edit]

Shouldn't it be changed to voiced and voiceless palatal affricates respectively?

Linguistic status quo[edit]

The language is the only thing we know directly, but it is at the same time most unknown thing for us. So far there is no scientific study of language. Scientists of other fields study objective facts about their object, whereas linguists have proven only that the language could not be studied scientifically. It is the time to change. Now it is time to change and to attack this problem. The linguistic had searched for language in insignificant directions, where there are not explanations about it and never could be.

Albanian stops are unaspirated[edit]

e and o are higher than the table shows, almost same level or higher than ë[edit]
