Excerpt from Greek Self-Taught (Modern): With Phonetic Pronunciation (Thimm's System)
It may almost be said that there are two languages in vogue in Greece, viz., (1) that of the savant or purist, and (2) the common or popular speech. The first is that mainly employed by Gree... k prose writers of the present day, and is, in a still greater degree, the language of the newspapers, of correspondence, and, indeed, of public life generally; it is spoken at school, at the University, and in Parliament. The second is the language of the masses; this is also, however. Often heard in the best educated families, and a good deal of patriotic and popular sentiment attaches to it. When necessary, and as far as the limits of space will allow, this book gives the words of both tongues most in use.
