Eqrem Çabej, Eric Hamp, Calvert Watkins and Waclaw Cimochowski,
while your recommended course for me is to follow Selishchev, whom I
haven't read but whose work, I gather, has been used by Serbians
with a nationalist agenda as a political weapon. That's a rather
unpleasant insinuation. Am I being oversensitive, or do you really
ascribe to me an anti-Albanian bias merely because I happen to
disagree with you on linguistic issues? Those who have met me on
this list for a long time will know how absurd that would be. As for
the rest, I don't care.

Once was not posted!
I try for second time
Not at all. On contrary, I wish not to be the solder of the absurd.
I like to make friends everywhere, even those with whom I not agree.
But defending such ideas as Albanians as non-desendent of Illyrians,
I confess that I start to doubt in Your attitude as linguist.
Nevertheless, I believe you agree to defend each one their position,
but on scientific basis.
