Fjala Turkoshqiptarë (greqisht: Τουρκαλβανός, Tourkalvanos, sh. Τουρκαλβανοί, Tourkalvanoi) është një term etnografik dhe fetar që përdoret nga grekët për myslimanët shqiptarë nga 1715 dhe më pas. Në një kuptim më të gjerë, termi përfshinte elitat politike dhe ushtarake myslimane shqiptare dhe turke të administratës osmane në Ballkan. Termi rrjedh nga një identifikim i myslimanëve me osmanët dhe/ose turqit, për shkak të sitemit administrativ të miletit të Perandorisë Osmane për klasifikimin e popujve sipas fesë, në të cilin mileti mysliman luajti rolin udhëheqës.
Nga mesi i shekullit XIX, termi Turk dhe nga fundi i shekullit XIX, termi i i prejardhur Turkoshqiptarë janë përdorur si një shprehje poshtëruese për individët dhe komunitetet shqiptare myslimane, dhe si një shprehje imperialiste dhe raciste.

I think of how astonished my students always look when I tell them that Ali Pasha was not Turkish but Albanian. I explain that this unclear, ideologically and sentimentally charged term, “Turkish-Albanian”, only refers to Muslim Albanians, through a general identification of Turks with Muslims, which is related to the millet system of administration used by the Ottomans to classify populations."

"In 1919, then, the Albanians attacked the Greek concept of national consciousness and civilization as a thinly disguised transformation of the utopia of the Greek Patriarch (which, to stress the "Oriental" connotations, they often called Ottoman or Byzantine): a utopia of many nations under one religion (subordinate to the Greek element). In reaction, the Albanian utopia crystallized as the logical opposite to that of the Greeks. Emphasizing blood and kinship through the medium of language, it constituted itself as profoundly indifferent to religious divisions-and on these grounds both Western and modern. Greek spokesman Cassavetes conflated Moslem Albanian and Turk, comparing the Greeks in southern Albania to Armenians (1921:473) at the mercy of the "Moslem element" (1921:471). Albanian official Vrioni responded that, quite to the contrary, Albanians have nothing in common with Turks. There is certainly no such creature as a Turko-Albanian, he argued: "The Turk belongs to the Turanian race, whereas the Albanian belongs to an Arian race" (1921:478)."
