Albanian Toponyms in Sandzak and Bosnia(Opinion)


When talking or debating with a Serb, the first thing he says for Sandzak, is that this place is called Raska and not Sandzak.  Serbs say that the word  Sandzak derives from Turkish. Right. “Sandzak” is a Turkish word, as well as 8742 other Turkish words that are adopted by Serbian language, such as: Sat, soap, pare (money), rakija, delija, çekiç (hammer), makaze (snips), jorgan (quilt), jastuk (cushion), hajduk etc. “Sandzak”  in Turkish means flag or banner high (alb: bajrak).
