Albanian, pronounced [ˈɟuha ˈʃcipɛ], is an Indo-European language spoken by approximately 7.3 million people, primarily in Albania and Kosovo, but also in other areas of the Balkans in which there is an autochthonous Albanian population, including western Macedonia, southern Montenegro, southern Serbia and northwestern Greece.  Additionally, speakers of Albanian can be found elsewhere throughout the latter two countries resulting from a modern diaspora, originating from the Balkans, that also includes Scandinavia, Switzerland, Germany, United Kingdom, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Singapore, Brazil, Canada, and the United States.

Albanian was proven to be an Indo-European language in 1854 by the German philologist Franz Bopp. The Albanian language comprises its own branch of the Indo-European language family. Some scholars believe that Albanian derives from Illyrian while others, claim that it derives from Daco-Thracian. (Illyrian and Daco-Thracian, however, may have formed a sprachbund, see Thraco-Illyrian.)
