Abstract

The interest in this topic stems from the fact that there are practically no studies dealing with the language use and code-switching (hereinafter CS) between Albanian and English in the case of Albanian immigrants to the USA. At the same time, this community is constantly growing both through the arrival of new immigrants and the natural growth of earlier immigrant families. However, the use of English and / or Albanian in various situations has not been researched, neither are there studies on the immigrants’ personal perceptions of their identity. Therefore, this dissertation attempts to give a starting point and pave the way for further inquiries into the language behavior and identity change within the Albanian-American community.
