Has this ever been researched? I would be interested in average levels of classical language proficiency at the end of a BA program. Do people actually learn how to read Greek after 4 years of study? Or must they continue on to a MA?

Old Irish and Ancient Greek most difficult IE languages to learn for an English speaker, claims "independent" scholar

Here's the relevant section of a language difficulty analysis based on majority opinion. Levels of difficulty range from easiest or 1 to most difficult of all or 6:

>Classic or Ancient Greek is worse [than Modern Greek], with a distinction between aspirated and unaspirated consonants, a pitch accent system and a truly convoluted, insanely irregular system of noun and verb inflection. It has a dual number in addition singular and plural and it has a very difficult optative case. Irregular verbs have one of six different stem types. The grammar is one of the most complex of all languages and the phonology and morphology are truly convoluted. Ancient Greek is said to have had four different genitive cases, but it actually had four different uses of the genitive:
>
> 1. Objective Genitive - "for obedience to faith"
>
>2. Subjective Genitive - "faith's obedience" or faithful obedience
>
>3. Attributive Genitive - "obedience of faith"

Thereโ€™s a myth going on between Albanians that when the first modern Greek state was created, the parliament voted for which language to become the official one: Albanian lost by one vote.

I always thought that was merely a nationalistic myth. But today, I was looking at some old maps of Balkans and found many maps like this one. It shows that half of Greece was populated by Albanians less than two centuries ago.

So, now Iโ€™m wondering whether that myth about the language vote is true?

Is this also the reason they canโ€™t differentiate between Albanian and Greek DNA?

Thanks for any enlightment!

Background on the Lรถdheisi language's dealing with borrowings (before we start, to clear up potential confusion; yes, the definite article in the singular is by coincidence the):

When one writes in Lรถdheisi the main foreign languages of Classical Education (Latin, Attic Greek, Biblical Hebrew, Safavid Persian, and Classical Arabic) retain their forms as much as possible in Lรถdheisi. For example, if one wanted to say "Islam," this would require the Lรถdheisi definite article "the," but because Arabic is one of the 5 classic languages, it is written al islaamu (NOM) al islaama (ACC) or al islaami (GEN) rather than the islaam (Though, this form is still acceptable--just a little less erudite). In the same vein, "of Jesus Christ" (often using Latin as the background language, but the Greek and Hebrew forms can be used) would be "Yesus Khristir" with the native Lรถdheisi genitive, but is com

People who have read Homer, Plato, etc in Ancient Greek, or anyone else who has read a piece in its original ancient language, how did it compare to the modern version?

I've just finished Meditations by Marcus Aurelius and noticed there are printed versions of the book in Ancient Greek available. I'm just wondering if anyone has read any texts from a similar era in an ancient language and how it compared to the modern translations.

For example, were the meaning you took away from certain quotes discernibly different from the modern versions? Did you find the read a lot more rewarding? Can the differences in ideas and the writing you noticed even be conveyed in a modern English version? Also, do you think it is worth learning an ancient language in order to read literature in this way?

I would be very interested to hear from anyone that could answer this question.

What are some weird concepts in the greek language?

As a native greek speaker learning german, I have found the concept of seperable verbs extremely weird. It cannot cross my mind why anyone would choose to speak like this.*

So I would like to know if any of the learners of our sub, had similar thoughts about a greek language grammar or syntax concept.

*For those that don't know german, some verbs that begin with a preposition get splitted, and place the preposition in the end of the sentence. If we had this example in greek the sentence "ฮ•ฮณฯŽ ฯ€ฯฮฟฮตฯ„ฮฟฮนฮผฮฌฮถฯ‰ ฯ„ฮฟ ฯ†ฮฑฮณฮทฯ„ฯŒ." would be "ฮ•ฮณฯŽ ฮตฯ„ฮฟฮนฮผฮฌฮถฯ‰ ฯ„ฮฟ ฯ†ฮฑฮณฮทฯ„ฯŒ ฯ€ฯฮฟ."

But they give him the testimony of being a wise man who is fully acquainted with our laws, and is able to interpret their meaning; (The Antiquities of the Jews, 20.263-264)

When did the Greek of the original written gospels stop being a language that the copiers were conversant in?

So Greek was the Lingua Franca of the Roman Empire, and the first Christians, if not the disciples themselves, spoke Greek. The Gospels were written in this spoken, living language.

Christianity spread all over the Roman Empire, and over distance and time, it eventually was adopted people who weren't conversant in Greek. Nowadays the Greek of the Gospels is an ancient Greek. When did people who read and copied the Gospels stop being conversant in the language they were originally written in?

Authorship of the Gospels: does the Intricacy of language and the fact itโ€™s written in Koine Greek refute traditional authorship?

Another fairly common argument brought up by skeptics is that the gospels couldnโ€™t have been authored by their respective apostles because of the fact they are written in Koine Greek, in particular, they were written very well in Koine Greek. The problem is that, allegedly, peasants from first century Judaea would either not have understood Koine Greek at all, or at least been unable to weave such literary miracles as the Gospels, with the complex use of literary devices and elegant structure. Is this a good argument against traditional authorship?

Some of my initial thoughts are that Koine Greek was actually fairly common throughout that time Period, and lost people were trilingual or even quadrilingual. They were speaking Aramaic, Hebrew, Koine Greek and perhaps Latin. So the issue is not so much would they have spoken koine Greek, but would they have spoken it that well? I guess divine inspiration is an argument, but not that is particularly useful in an argument with a skeptic,

Biggest challenges for Greek language learners?

I am a native Greek and English speaker, and am currently a Greek language teacher for a class of 6yr olds, and I also do adult private tutoring. As a foreign language learner myself (Arabic and French), I came across many difficulties from grammar concepts that do not exist in my own mother tongues to an inability to properly pronounce certain letters no matter how hard I tried.

Now that I am teaching my own language, it is helping me learn a lot about Greek from the perspective of the learner. I have been asked questions ranging from understanding the cases, to which words take an -e (-ฮต) ending for the vocative, to syntactic structure and the flexibility of wording a sentence.

Iโ€™m curiousโ€”what have been your biggest challenges in learning Greek?

When I look, mostly I find crazy prices or else outdated or inadequate information. Many of these places are clearly just taking advantage of stupid tourists. For example, many will advertise apartment rates for basically youth hostel accommodations that cost more than staying in luxury in Santorini.

I have been to Greece many times so I know if I am being ripped off. It is unbelievable how many "language schools" there are advertising in Greece all with horrible websites, old information advertising classes from 2017, no prices given, etc--and no it isn't because of Coronavirus because I spent a lot of time looking last year and found the same thing.

So I thought maybe somebody here wil

Greek only with Language Transfer (thinking method)

ฮšฮฑฮปฮทฯƒฯ€ฮญฯฮฑ, everyone!

I've been learning Greek for 3 days until now, but only using the playlist that Language Transfer made. It has been very useful to understand the way that Greek works generally, learn a few verbs, construct simple phrases alone and etc. But somehow I still think that there is something missing, like I need something else to improve my own learning process. I miss writing down the words, seeing how it connects alongside the listening.

Please, feel free to express yourself not just about my case, but the learning process as a whole.

Greek Easter gift question (sorry not language related, not sure where else to post!)

My girlfriend is Greek and I was going to get her and her family flowers for Greek Easter. Are there any flowers/colors that are particularly Greek or represent Greek Easter? Or is there another gift you may suggest?

Sorry mods, Iโ€™m not sure where else to ask and was hoping to check this community. Please let me know if there is a more appropriate forum.

Hey! I was wondering whether anyone might be able to recommend me anything about morality tied directly to the seven sins, added bonus if it's Ancient Greek literature (also don't mind it in the language itself, eg. because of a bad translation or something)?

If the Arabs conquered the Byzantine Empire, would Anatolia & Greece become Arabized or would the Greek language survive & become a language of โ€œhigh cultureโ€ within Islam like Persian did?

For comparison, Persian survived and became a prestige language in India & Central Asia when those areas were conquered by Muslims.

Dyฤ“us is considered by scholars the most securely reconstructed deity of the Indo-European pantheon, as identical formulas referring to him can be found among the subsequent Indo-European languages and myths of the Latins, Greeks, Phrygians, Indo-Aryans, Thracians, Illyrians, Albanians and Hittites.

Sanskrit and Slavic languages sometimes put demonstrative pronoun on relative pronoun and conjunctive, like โ€œั‚ะพ ั‡ั‚ะพโ€, โ€œั‚ะพั‚ ะบะพั‚ะพั€ั‹ะนโ€. Does Modern Greek have this trait, though Ancient Greek didnโ€™t?

Does Josephus say that it was common to learn the Greek language among Jews?

Josephus:

>I have also taken a great deal of pains to obtain the learning of the Greeks; and understand the elements of the Greek language: although I have so long accustomed my self to speak our own tongue, that I cannot pronounce Greek with sufficient exactness. for our nation does not encourage those that learn the languages of many nations, and so adorn their discourses with the smoothness of their periods; because they look upon this sort of accomplishment as common, not only to all sorts of free-men, but to as many of the servants as please to learn them. But they give him the testimony of being a wise man who is fully acquainted with our laws, and is able to interpret their meaning; (The Antiquities of the Jews, 20.263-264)
