Neēin was a gay man who lived in the village of Pėrmet, Albania in the
mid-nineteenth century and wrote a number of beautiful love songs. The
ambassador from Austria-Hungary at the time, J. G. von Hahn, compiled
some of these in the hybrid alphabet in use at the time, as well as
providing a German translation. I have transliterated the songs listed
here into the post-1908 alphabet which has since been the standard
alphabet used for reading and writing in Albanian, and provided an English
translation. Where I show the hybrid alphabet, the shareware WINGREEK V
1.9 is required, which provides Greek, Hebrew and Coptic fonts for any
True Type-compatible environment. In the text (non-.WRI) version, no
special fonts are needed.
