and it didn't. It has its loan but it din't changed to a Latin like
language. The gordian knot here is that the language which has been
speak by the actually Romanians _was not_ alike to that which became
modern Albanian, but different.
In fact such a "kuddel-muddel" this time via scientific way due
phonetical aspects for comming to something Strabo said already

with different languages". Who is who, that is another cup of tea.
