Summary/Abstract: The present article aims at highlighting two types of linguistic intereference phenomena, lexical borrowing and code-switching, in the Aromanian dialect spoken in Albania, starting from a corpus of texts in the form of articles, published in Fratia Newspaper ( a bilingual Aromanian –Albanian publication coming out in Divjaka, Albania, every two months) between January 2014 and March 2016. At the lexical level, we shall deal with the cultural and core borrowings from Albanian into Aromanian, necessary to fill in the lexical gaps existing in the Aromanian dialect, brought about by the changes in the Aromanians' lifestyle during their sedentarization under the communist regime in Albania, and after the fall the communist system.
