Pou ni Kostos?
Did they speak Ancient Greek when the Rome empire had control over greece? I heard Italy spoke Latin at that time, but since rome is in Italy, did the Romans speak latin, or Ancient Greek? Why do they write Ancient Greek words in Latin alphabet as well as Greek alphabet? its really confusing..
How do you pronounce ???? (love in a.greek), ?????? (peace in a.greek) ????? (jewel in a.greek)? what are love, peace nd jewel in modern greek? is it similar? how do youpronounce them?
thank you very muchhh!
i see a lot of greek organizations with meanings that go along with each greek alphbet
for example: a greek organization with the greek letter PHI,will have that it represents the greek word philia, which means love or friendship.
My question is, what word do each letter of the greek alphabet stand for (what greek word does it represent), and what does that greek word mean.
just like Phi-Philia-love/friendship
i really need this info. please help
I posted this question in Languages and got 0 answers, so let me try once again in this category.
How similar/different are NT and modern Greek? Can speakers of modern Greek read the original NT easily? By the way, do you know if the original NT the official version of the Greek Orthodox Church, or is there a translation in modern Greek in use?
I am planning to start learning NT Greek, and I was thinking that maybe starting with modern Greek, and then (after a year or so) moving to NT Greek is a good idea? Is the grammar essentially the same? I am not that much concerned with (differences in) vocabulary in both languages (dialects), as I am with learning the grammar first. The thing is, I already have resources to learn modern Greek and plus the additional benefit of being conversational in modern Greek. Or do I better go straight to NT Greek, since that's my ultimate goal?
I'm trying to translate words and phrases from English to Greek and/or Ancient Greek, but I've had great difficulty finding an online dictionary that translates according to these two conditions...
(1) The Greek words must be in the Latin alphabet (i.e. a, b, c) NOT in the Greek alphabet (i.e. alpha, betta, gamma), and
(2) It must also NOT be "Greeklish" - the transliteration of the Greek Alphabet (i.e. letter-by-letter converstion of delta to D and gamma to G), but rather an OFFICIAL translation for that word.
I'm not sure how else to express it, but perhaps an example will help... In Greek "helios" means "sun" and "deus" means "god" and "hypnos means "sleep". These are translations in the Latin alphabet that are not transliterations. What I am looking for is a resource (preferably online) that translates any other English word (like "source" or freedom" or "flow") in that way.
If you have any information on such a website, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!
I have a greek friend from North Hepeirus and she told me that they wouldn't allowed to talk greek not even in their homes. Also, there were always strange people that was called "cusines" that were watching them every time that someone was coming from greek state to visit them. She told me that many people died in prison for just very funny reasons, such as because they didn't admit they were Albanians.
They deprived of the right to get married in churches, many Greeks from Albania got married after escaping in Greece.
Also, many people escaped from Albania using spoons and forks for digging small tuneles.
Also, albanian state refused to state as greeks the child that had a greek parent and an albanian parent, trying to minimize the minority.
At first, I thought that it was too much for being true.
What do you think of it?....
You are right, except of the Thrace minority. I live in Xanthi. Except of the public schools, there is also a private gymnasium for Muslims, which was built in 1968... In schools things are very "gentle" for them. They also have another list of entering the University, which is very favorable. I also know that they vote to specific villages, so that they elect people from the minority, and why not? Of course they must stand up for their rights.
Of course I know that uneven things are happening. But greek state is not hostile to minorities, people live in freedom and no one presses them to deprive of their language and different character, that's what I think.

If I were to learn modern greek, what would I have to do to understand Ancient Greek (which is my ultimate goal)?
In other words, how close is modern greek to ancient greek?
Please, tell me what you think of them. How pretty you think they are (or how ugly). What you think of them sexually, what you think about their attitudes, what you think about their bodies... their hair. Tell me what you like and don't like about them. Tell me the myths and if they are true or false.
I am a Greek girl and would like to know everything. However, I get it from my dad. Unfortunately, I never knew what it was like to live as Greek. I grew up with my mom and her family (non Greeks).
I have a boyfriend (non Greek) and he loves the fact that I am Greek. I just don't understand why?
I was wondering how Greek Theater, plays, and dramatists influenced Greek society, and how Greek plays reflected Greek society. Also any websites with information on this topic would be great.
You know how written English has two forms, printing (with block letters) and cursive handwriting. I am interested in learning Greek and was wondering if written Greek is the same way. I am familiar with the Greek alphabet but I was wondering if there is a cursive Greek handwriting too? How do Greeks handwrite Greek? Is it just printed or is there a way to merge letters together so that you don't have to lift your hand up for every letter?
I guess it's some kind of an idiom, it might either be "greek meets greek" or something like "greek meeting greek case". I need the answer desperately -don't ask why, it's so complicated :)))
Actually I just need to make a point here. I am so fuming. I asked a question here before about giving birth in Greek hospitals and I got one or two questions that made me so angry. Basically they were telling me to go back home were so unbelieveably rude.
I asked about drugs and delivery in Greek hospitals, what the policies were. If by practice they gave drugs if there were no complications, if for example that they preferred to deliver without drugs or something.
To set the record straight I love my new country. I think the hospital system is the best I have ever experienced. Better than England, and better than my home country of Australia. My doctor is an absolute gentleman and I feel so safe and comfortable with him. I dont think Greece is a third world country and I never did. I love my new home in every aspect and respect its culture. AND I speak Greek and have Greek friends if you want to yell at me for that too.
Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.
bravo chrys! My sentiments exactly!
Need help with my family tree. The Greek Surname "Antony" from Athens, Greece? My Great Grandpa is Nicoli Antony .. Does anyone know what the Greek origination of the name Antony is? I speak a little Greek, but not enough to ask in Greek! Thank you!
