It depends on what context your asking Daskalot. If its an attempt to water down the Greek Ethnos than the answer is No, Its not just anybody. Only to individuals that have fully embodied themselves to the Hellenic traditions, and culture. Of course it would be harder for a Chinaman, Pigmy or Eskimo to meet the requirements. But for individuals from the balkans it would be a small difference. Thats my take on it.

So in essence to be a Greek is no different to be an American.
Can we agree on this?

The Polish are starting to do this too, Hitlerowicz, Staliniewski. I foresee complications.

Il also try to read up on them, Albania is really is a unique case in the balkans. Their uniqueness is the reasons Albanians give regarding their Illyrian heritage, but Im not so sure anymore. Il see if I can find Byzantine records of them.
John Wilkes has made some progress in the area of unraveling the revisionism that has weighed down authentic scholarship concerning the Modern Albanians through his research concerning the Ancient Illyrians, but I donít believe he has ever put forward a formal thesis. Bratot posted some excellent documentation concerning the subject a while back that you would probably be interested in. I canít seem to locate it at the moment, but it was extremely informative. A little perseverance and the right keyword should get you what youíre looking for.

Itís evident that many different populations merged together in different ways over time to form what would come to be considered Albanian. Albania doesnít have a history as much as it has a set of histories that are now intertwined due to the formation of the modern nation states. Oversimplification has plagued research in this area by anachronistically ascribing a singularity where there clearly never was one. A certain percentage of Albanians are indigenous as evidenced by their genetic similarity to many Croatians and Macedonians and a certain percentage came from other areas of the world.

There is a lot of propaganda on wikipedia, cannot take it serious anymore, just like wiki answers.

Im not saying all articles or answers are bad but there is a lot of bullshit there.

No, unfortuantly we cant agree. America celebrates their diversities. May 5 for Mexicans. February for Blacks. Pulaski Day for the Polish. March 25th for Greeks, ect, ect. Greece does not have that concept because Greeks and whoever self declares themselves as Greeks have the same traditions or culture ( homogenos ).

I mentioned individuals as an example. In another thread regarding Arvanties, I listed them as a group that had fully assimilated to the Greek ethnos. I provided a definition for assimilation and I dont think I got an answer. Same goes for Vlachs although for the latter I said that it is completely plausible that certain groups of Vlachs are in fact Latinised Greeks. In all of the above cases that does not mean there are no Greeks. I use the exception TO the rule where some use the exception AS the rule which is wrong. Anyway, I dont want to bog down this thread with this all over again.

Both Greek and Albanian are 'creole' languages of some sort, as they both developed from a hybrid of unrelated languages. The Slavic languages, on the other hand, differ somewhat, as they are a hybrid of related languages. The Paleo-Balkan and Baltic tongues were merely homogenised by the related Common Slavic - which itself was a lingua franca based on the Scythian or Danubian Slavic languages, located centrally between the Baltic north and Balkan south.

This evolutionary path would explain a number of things. Many words that fall under the Western Slavic language classification are simply contracted variations of what are generally considered Baltic (Aestian/Asian?) words. Contractions indicate that the pace of life in this vast area quickened. Roads and urbanization provide an archeologically verifiable explanation for this phenomenon, as well as, the means through which such changes occurred.

The Klyosovian Interpretative Model, as it pertains to the expansion of R1a1 populations throughout Eurasia and Western Europe in relation to basic geo-linguistic rules of thumb, suggests that the language or set of languages spoken by people north of the Danube had to be more similar to what is commonly regarded as Indo-Iranic, by virtue of the fact that many people from Central and Eastern Europe (and I do mean many) are the direct biological descendents of the same populations who eventually migrated into Northern India. People from Central and Eastern Europe no longer use many of the words preserved in Avestian (Aestian?) and Ancient Indian texts. This is evidence of innovation at or near the center of a culture or set of similar cultures.
