Reviews about Standard Albanian: A Reference Grammar for Students (4):
Xurad
This book is hard to find and is a rather large item. (It's better to photocopy it in reduction and travel with the photocopy). It's more like a reference grammar rather than something which teaches early learners. I personally found the many examples of complex sentences useful. Serious students of Albanian should go through it.

This book is a translation of an old communist-era textbook, and it has some shockingly, if not hilariously, Marxist propaganda throughout, BUT the Albanian grammar it presents must be the best of any Albanian textbook I've ever seen. It breaks down complex Albanian sentence structures fabulously. If you're going over to Albania/Kosovo as a tourist/peace corp. worker/missionary, you might not find this immensely helpful during the first 6 months of study, but for a serious, linguistically competent learner, this book is invaluable as a reference. I, now, translate professionally, and I still use this book for the more complex structures that I come across on the rare occasion. Colloquial Albanian is a better grab for someone just starting out with Albanian.
Tyler Is Not Here
The book is very helpful indeed, especially if you're learning alone. All grammatic points are well explained. From a short introduction on the history of the language till complex grammar structures. The use of the International Phonetic Alphabet helps a lot in the pronounciation (if you don't have acces to a native speaker). It's topics are not boring as many grammar books are, and although it is written in a very academical way, you'll be delighted to learn with the help of a direct, communicative and fun methodology.
Celore
The fate we accorded Stalin, Lenin, and Trotsky should be visited on this book as well, and it is simply astonishing that this fossil of the communist era is still being touted to Westerners as a useful representation of the Albanian language. The simple truth is, it should be hauled by the neck and dragged off the shelf of any bookstore silly enough to stock it.

Whenever the book unveils a grammatic principle, then substantiates its theory by offering an example of how to use the term or terms in a practical way, you can bet the example is taken from a Plenary Session of the Comintern where someone or something is being condemned show trial style. Nearly every linguistic principle is illustrated by an example taken from communist ideology. So thoroughly is marksist-leninist propaganda embedded in the book that the inherent beauty of the Albanian language scheme is needlessly obscured. Moreover, this is a blatantly sexist book, you will read the pseudo-sexual term "clitic" so often you will be unable to stomach any further justification of its usage. I found the language charts shallow and incomplete.

The book however is beautifully bound; the creme colored paper holding the black ink superbly. But books are meant to be read, and used to learn, and therein lies this book's principle failing. It had limited value when it was first issued, and has only devalued from there over time.

Note: The author of this review graduated from the Albanian language program at The Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. His translation of Albanian novelist Ismail Kadare appeared in the Winter edition of Michigan Quarterly Review in 2011
