Greek Today

Greek spoken today is known as Modern Greek. It is the native language of more than 12 million people from Greece, Cyprus and Turkey

Modern Greek dates from the fall of the Byzantine Empire in 1453 and it refers to the fifth stage of the evolution of the Greek Language: Mycenaean Greek, Classical Greek, Hellenistic Greek, Medieval Greek and Modern Greek or Romeika.

The Greek language has not really changed much in its long history ( Greek has been spoken in the Balkan Peninsula since the 2nd millennium BC ). The vocabulary of Modern Greek is essentially that of Ancient Greek.  The Greek alphabet has been used to write the Greek language since the late 9th or early 8th century BC .

Many modern words in English and other Western languages are derived from Greek, and it is estimated that 12% of the English vocabulary is of Greek origin.
