    Hi I'm from Italy, I studied ancient greek when I was in High school, I must admit it was a hard nut to crack, but I loved that language so I got a lot of good marks at school!!!ehehe...italian comes from latin and greek as well so in some schools we must study both of them to understand the origin of the italian language

    Indeed I used to study Plato and his works,very very difficult!!!

    I'm very curious about modern greek, let's say I'm studying it by myself, but this thread is really really interesting and helpful...I noticed that there are many differences between the old greek and the modern one...

    I'll try to follow all your suggestions maria!!!

    efkaristň...thanks!!!and congrats!!!!


    a little question: can you still understand ancient greek, or does it seem dutch for your ears????

    You fell in the deep waters. Ancient Greek is much more difficult than modern Greek. At least you've learned something?

    I think that Plato is easy and understandable. In the contrary, Aristotle is so difficult. His speech is strange and complicated....

    You'll be surprised if you see how many differences there are between ancient and modern Greek. They are two different languages, but they have the sames roots, cause modern Greek has come from ancient Greek. Hear something funny... My aunt is French and sometime her father came from France to Greece. He knew ancient Greek from the school, so he went to a shop and he was speaking in ancient Greek. Then, the shopkeeper said to him "I'm sorry, I don't speak French..." He thought that they are similar. Poor guy...

    Me I can understand ancient Greek, cause I study Greek language and literature, so it's my section. I have to know, cause in the future I'll teach ancient Greek and modern Greek in a Greek school.

    I see, i'll try to do my best. I have to say many things. I haven't said about the declension of the nouns and the cases yet. I just mentioned it before in another thread. I'll put a link in case of wanting to see it:

    Maria mou, talking about personal pronouns you gave us before... I have a question: what's the difference between strong and weak persons and when can i use strong or weak?

    Unhappy Sorry for being late!

    Strong and weak forms

    For each person of the personal pronoun there are two kinds of forms, the strong and the weak.
    The strong forms are used when the pronoun is on its own, when we say smth with emphasis or to make a distinction. They have more syllables than the weak and in oral speech we pronounce them with greater stress.
    The weak forms occur more frequently than the strong and they are used when we don’t say smth with emphasis or distinction. They can be used without a verb, except when they are equivalent to possessive pronouns. They are classified as proclitics or enclitics.

    Declension

    The first and second person personal pronouns follow their own (irregular) declension. The third person is declined like the adjective καλός (=good).
    Only the second person has vocative.
    Only the third person has separated forms fro the three genders.
    The weak form of the third person has two forms for the accusative of the feminine plural (τις & τες). The form τις is used before the verb, while τες is used after it: Τις βλέπω. Αν τις δεις, χαιρέτα τες.
    The weak first and second person personal pronouns have distinct forms for the genitive and accusative only the singular (μου, με). In plural they have the same form (μας, μας). The strong pronouns have the same form in both numbers (εμένα, εσένα, εμάς, εσάς).
    The genitive plural of the third person in common to all genders (αυτών, τους).
    Orthography: the pronouns that begin with ε can undergo prodelision only when preceded by a word ending in [a], [o], or accented [é]. Pronouns that undergo prodelision aren’t written with an apostrophe: από μένα, καλέ συ, για σένα, από σας, μ’ εσάς, είμ’ εγώ, είσ’ εσύ, ούτ’ εσείς.
    After και these pronouns lose their initial ε. But they can also written as κι: κι εγώ, κι εσύ.
    The strong forms are often used together with the weak for greater emphasis than when the weak forms are on their own. Accusative: εμένα δε με ρωτούν, αυτόν τον ακούνε. Genitive: εσένα ο πατέρας σου, τα παιδιά μας εμάς θα πάνε αύριο ταξίδι. Genitive equivalent to an accusative with a preposition: δεν σου το λέω εσένα.
    The weak forms of the third are used in the nominative, both singular and plural only in certain words and particularly with να: να τος, να τες, πού ‘ναι τος.
    The accusative singular of the third person masculine always retains the final ν (αυτόν, τον).
    When used as a proclitic, the accusative feminine την retains its final v if the word that follows begins with a vowel or a stop consonant.
    When used as an enclitic, the accusative την doesn’t normally have the final v unless a vowel follows.
