I forgot to mention that the equivalent word for German "Bauer" and
Swedish "bonde" is "bujk" (a farmer) in Albanian.

Also, Geg form of the verb 'to inhabit' is "me banue", "banoj"
Tosk. "banë" is a kind of hut built by shepherds.

"burrë" is a man, husband.

I will put all these words in a list:

buj - to be somebody´s guest or live temporarily somewhere

bujk - farmer

bujar - nobleman

me banue - dwell, inhabit

banë - a hut built by shepherds

burrë - a man, husband
