unique local

. In the intro, written by Vasilis Bolanos, the then-mayor. In the town of Himarë as well as in nearby villages of Dhërmi and Palasa mainly speak a unique local Greek dialect (Varieties of Modern Greek) that preserves many archaic features no longer found in standard Modern Greek. This dialect has small variations in the way it is spoken in every town, especially in the accent. On the other hand the surrounding towns of Ilias, Vuno, Qeparo, Kudhes and Pilur mainly speak the Tosk Albanian dialect with heavy Greek influence; for example 'thank you' is 'ju haristisem', please is 'ju parkales', and 'village' is 'hora'. Gregorič, 2008 (#Gregorič): p. 63 In the spring of 2006, a private Greek-language school opened in the town of Himarë, Gregorič, 2008 (#Gregorič): p. 68 at the precise location where the Orthodox missionary Cosmas the Aetolian founded the Acroceraunian School in 1770. Minority issues While the situation of the Greek minority in Albania (Greeks in Albania) has improved since the fall of communism, ethnic tensions in Himara remain high. The success in the Epirus front enabled the Greek headquarters to transfer part of the army to Thessaloniki, in preparation for a confrontation against the Bulgarians (Kingdom of Bulgaria).
