Language Notes:

Text: English, Greek


"The book is full of fascinating examples of the spoken demotic language that marvelously illustrate every aspect of the living modern Greek language, as well as pertinent information on its history and development....Absolutely captivating reading for those closely familiar with the contemporary Greek language and its development and appropriate for undergraduates and graduate students who are closely involved with the learning of modern Greek."--Choice

"The appearance of this book...could not be more opportune.... It should be referred to by all language experts and addicts, as well as by speakers and readers of Greek (not only modern).... Its systematic treatment of every aspect of current usage will ensure its use by scholars, translators, and students both inside and outside Greece."--Times Literary Supplement. "Mackridge's is the first comprehensive 'state of the art' survey of Modern Greek in English....This work is a must for Neo-Hellenists and is also worthwhile reading for others, including linguists interested in the state of Greek in the 1980's and anyone with a knowledge of earlier stages of the language who wants to see what centuries of development have wrought."--Language. "Ought to be part of the library of any philhellene, or of anyone who loves languages."--Greek Gazette

"What makes his book so useful is not only that it is a language with world-wide currency, but also that...its author approaches Greek with an objectivity and a freshness that may be easier to find among foreign students of the language than among native Greek ones....A solid, sober, non-dogmatic, and readable book that should serve us well for many years."--Journal of the Hellenic Diaspora
