Lullabies, language analysis and features
by, Dr. Majlinda HALA, Dr. Blegina Hasko BEZO
This paper seeks to analyze lullabies – the folkloric creativity dedicated to children, which comes naturally through the mother’s mouth to the child. The lullabies under consideration have become part of the literary analysis about the meter, verse, literary figures as well as any particular characteristics by the provinces they come from, wanting to highlight and discover the psychological and emotional world that the mother has expressed through the verses. for the child. Epithets, comparisons, metaphors, alliterations, etc., and the approximation in the selection of stylistic figures make us think that this is the result of the commonality of the mother’s perceptions of the world around her. The presented materials come as comprehensive research, capturing creations from various regions of Albania and are part of folklore creations for children. As such, they constitute an indisputable wealth for the Albanian oral folklore and a national treasure that must be identified, conserved, used and transmitted to current and future generations.
