Greek – basic information

  • Elliniká is a Hellenic language, an independent branch of the Indo-European language family. Of all modern living languages, Greek has the longest document history of writing, which spans nearly 3,500 years. For many centuries of the ancient era, Old Greek was a lingua franca in the Mediterranean. The Greek language has had a strong impact on the development of European culture and science as it is one of the major sources of international scientific terms (besides Latin). Greek has also influenced a number of other international languages. Middle Greek was the dominant language of the Byzantine Empire, and gave rise to Modern Greek.
  • It was not until the 1970s that the vernacular form of Modern Greek (δημοτική – Dīmotikí) gained official status. By then, the predominant variety was Katherevousa (purified Greek), which retained a number of features of Classical Greek. At present, the Greek language is composed of six dialectal groups.
  • The Greek alphabet was created in the 9th century BC and was inspired by the Phoenician writing system. Over the centuries it was modified many times before it was approved in its present form. This alphabet has influenced many other writing systems, including the Latin, Cyrillic and Gothic scripts.
  • Greek is regulated and promoted by the Center for the Greek Language.
  • Greek is one of the EU’s official languages.
