Arnold Ritter von Harff's lexicon

The Arnold Ritter von Harff's lexicon is the second most ancient Albanian language document ever retrieved after the Formula e pagëzimi. The lexicon was written by Arnold Ritter von Harff, a German traveler, who in 1496 was spending some hours in the port of Durrës and transcribed some words of the locals, by writing on the side, the German translation of them. The document includes 26 words in Albanian, 8 expressions, and numbers from 1 to 10, and also 100, and 1000.[1]
