Les Aroumains constituent le deuxième groupe du sud albanais à bénéficier d'avantages similaires. Ceux-ci sont descendants de pasteurs transhumants qui étaient présents dans toute l'Épire et en Macédoine. Leur particularité dans cette région est l'adoption de la langue grecque. En effet, si la langue domestique est demeurée l'aroumain, les membres de ce groupe savaient / savent le grec, la plupart de leurs terres de parcours se situant dans des régions hellénophones (Dropull, région de Sarandë).

The Aromanians are the second largest group in southern Albania to enjoy similar benefits. These are descendants of transhumant pastoralists who were present throughout Epirus and Macedonia. Their particularity in this region is the adoption of the Greek language. Indeed, if the domestic language remained the Aromanian, the members of this group knew / know the Greek, most of their pasturelands being located in Hellenophone regions (Dropull, Sarandë region).
Not something new, but my post about 'Vlach-Greeks' in Albania (last year) has mentioned Dropull (one of the region that Vlach Grecophones settled).
