Summary/Abstract: The object of this study is the changes in the system of the ancient Bulgarian nasal sounds that have led to the contemporary reflexes of the nasal vocals in the speech pattern of Golo Bardo, Albania. The historic development of the ancient Bulgarian nasals is an important element of the typology of that speech pattern for the establishing of its connections with the rest of the Bulgarian dialects and the literary Bulgarian standard. The Analysis of the corpus aims to prove that the dialect of Golo Bardo is a unified system and represents one definite speech type. The established diversity of reflexes of the back vocal nasals does not change its general nature. This is a specific feature related to its geographic position in the periphery of the Bulgarian language area.
