From the wide range of issues that concern with Albanian language culture, professor Bahri Beci chose to dedicate them with passion and desire to improve the work of the national language. Although in his 80s, his zeal to work for the Albanian language does not stop him, publishing and revealing his skills in the field of publicity through the narration of his life. It is the desire for the words of the Albanian language that drives him to write, not only to argue scientifically and to memorize memories, but to leave behind rich and expensive linguistic assets for linguistic descendants, or for lovers of the language. For his extensive scientific creativity, we would make a comparative approach with the activity of the great researcher, Aleksandër Xhuvani, who initially worked to equip education with language texts accompanied by criteria related to methodology, enabling generations to learn Albanian language with normative goals in school and outside it. The work started by the colossus of linguistics for a pure and literary language, for the unification of the Albanian language, for its enrichment with new elements from the popular source, for its purification from unnecessary words, etc., was followed with the will and desire of indefatigable by professor Beci, who worked all his life and was in the service of the culture of the Albanian language. A linguist with a wide culture, a good connoisseur of the fields of linguistics, such as: grammar, history of the Albanian language, dialectology, phonetics, pragmatics, literary language and language culture, he will frame his figure as an indomitable worker in an effort to develop, enrich and preserve the identity of the Albanian language, playing the role of a revolutionary from the point of view of perfecting the Albanian language.
