About Greek

The Greek language, called Hellenic or Ellenika by the people who speak and write it, is an Indo-European language, born in Greece and once spoken also along the coast of Asia Minor and in southern Italy. In classical times there were a variety of spoken dialects, most notably Ionic, Doric, and Attic.

Modern Greek is a living tongue and one of the richest surviving languages today, with more than 600,000 words. Some scholars have overly stressed similarity to millennia-old Greek languages. Its eligibility with ancient Greek is a matter of debate. It is claimed that a “reasonably well educated” speaker of the modern tongue can read the ancient language, but it is not made plain how much of that education consists of exposure to vocabulary and grammar obsolete in normal communication. From 1834 to 1976 there was an attempt to impose Katharevousa (“purified” language?an attempt to “correct” centuries of natural linguistic changes) as the only acceptable form of Greek in Greece. After 1976, Demotiki (speech of the people) was finally accepted by the Greek government as both the de facto and de jure forms of the language. A large number of words and expressions have remained unchanged through the centuries, and have found their way into a number of other languages, including Latin, German, French, and English. Typical examples of such words include mostly terminology names, like astronomy, philosophy, thespian, anthropology etc.

There are many theories about the origins of the Greek language. One theory suggests that it originated with a migration of proto-Greek speakers into Greece, which is dated to any period between 3200 BC to 1900 BC. Another theory maintains that Greek evolved in Greece itself out of an early Indo-European language.
