Summary/Abstract: Robert Elsie, the prominent albanologist of our days, has left behind a rich scientific and cultural work. This is best evidenced by his works published in Albanian, but most of them in foreign languages, first of all in English; this is evidenced by a large number of studies, commentaries, reviews and articles published on various issues related to Albanian language, to its written literature and oral literature, ethnography, anthropology and mythology. This paper analytically and synthetically presents Robert Elsie's contribution to the Albanian language, namely its history and its present. In order to do that were considered these works: Përkthimet e hershme shqipe të Biblës në dorëshkrimet e Todhrit (Early Albanian translations of the Bible in Todhr's manuscripts); Alfabetet shqipe: të huazuar dhe të krijuar (Albanian alphabets: borrowed and created); Leksikun e kulturës popullore shqiptare (Albanian folk culture dictionary); then studies and papers: Dorëshkrimi Elbasanas i Ungjijve 1761 dhe lufta për krijimin e një alfabeti shqiptar(The Gospel's Elbasan Manuscript 1761 and the struggle for the creation of an Albanian alphabet); Letërsia shqipe në dorëshkrimet greke: tradita ortodokse në shekullin tetëmbëdhjetë dhe në fillim të shekullit nëntëmbëdhjetë në shkrimet shqipe (Albanian literature in Greek manuscripts: orthodox traditions in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century in the Albanian writings);
