Summary/Abstract: This paper aims to prove that the language of Rexhep Qosja’s novels is the standard language in terms not only of involvement, but also the creation of linguistic innovation needed for linguistic and artistic expression. The standardization of the language in the novel "Bijtë e askuj" is noticed at all levels, notably in spelling. However, in this novel, as well as in three other novels: “Vdekja më vjen prej syve të tillë” ("Death Comes From Such Eyes"), “Një dashuri dhe shtatë faje” ("One Love and Seven Sins") and “Nata është ditja jonë” ("The Night is Our Day"), this standard is not subject to the ingrained regularity, but is a processing tool and artistic revision of literary- linguistic object. In the novel there is distinguished the lexical-word formation creativity, which we appreciate with a particular interest not only as the author’s distinctive style, but as enrichment of standard Albanian language and, of generally, the Albanian neologism. This lexical layer becomes language identifier and style of the writer, not only in the literary work, but also in all of his creations, especially on the political, journalistic and polemical ones.
