It may remarked in passing, however, that it is not quite evident that Arvanitika had the category of optative in the past; ''some aspecrs of the history of the mood remains obscure'' (34, n12).
The author clearly aimed at the description of the situation of language shift in Arvanitika and not at understanding whether the patterns revealed are generally typical of sociolinguistic situations characterized by a strong functional distribution of two (or more) co- existing languages.

 Arvanitika - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arvanitika or Arvanitic (Greek: Αρβανίτικα; native name: Arbëríshte, spelled Αρbε̰ρίσ̈τε in the Greek-based Arvanitic alphabet) is the variety of Albanian traditionally spoken by the Arvanites, a population group in Greece.
Arvanitika is today an endangered language, as its speakers have been shifting to the use of Greek and most younger members of the community no longer speak it fluently.
Arvanitika is considered an endangered language due to the large-scale language shift towards Greek among the descendants of Arvanitika-speakers in recent decades.

 Arvanites - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arvanitika is under danger of extinction due to language shift towards Greek and due to large-scale migrations into the cities.
Regions with a strong traditional presence of Arvanites are found mainly in a compact area in southeast Greece, namely across Attica, southern Boeotia, the north-east of the Peloponnese, the south of the island of Euboea, the north of the island of Andros, and several islands of the Saronic Gulf including Salamis.
While Arvanitika was commonly called Albanian in Greece until the 20th century, the wish of Arvanites to express their ethnic identification as Greeks has led to a stance of rejecting the identification of the language with Albanian as well.

Nevertheless, Arvanitika belongs to the linguistic family of Albanian, and it has evolved from one of the two linguistic groups of Albanian, the South Albanian Tosk (the other is the North Albanian Gheg).
Arvanitika has a dialectical richness: there are three different groups of dialects spoken, one in Thrace, one in Northwestern Greece (near the Albanian border), and one in Central and Southern Greece.
The latter, which includes the vast majority of speakers of Arvanitika in Greece, has by itself a great dialectical variety which makes some of these dialects to be, or to be perceived by the speakers as, mutually unintelligible (Nakratzas, 1992:86; Trudgill et al., 1975:44; Tsitsipis, 1983:297; Williams, 1992:85).

Diese Problematik wird hinsichtlich konkreter Bedrohungsfaktoren, nämlich a) den sozialdemographischen Veränderungen in unserem Forschungsfeld, b) der Sprachideologie der Einwohner und c) der albanischen Immigration in jüngster Zeit, diskutiert und angesichts empirischer Daten in Frage gestellt.
This issue is discussed and evaluated on the basis of empirical data on the concrete factors threatening the language’s survival, namely: a) sociodemographic changes within the body of its speakers, b) the linguistic ideology of the areas in which the language is spoken, and c) the recent influx of Albanian immigrants into this region.
The study’s findings indicate that, within the case-study village, Arvanitika does indeed remain a living language within the niches and islands of everyday communication and that it is transmitted to the younger generation by means of numerous networks.
