Talk:Greek

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

I believe Greece must be a wikipedia article, instead of a wiktionary definition.

I believe they should be both. The article about Greece in Wikipedia should give information about the country, ie. its history, geography, population, etc. The article about Greece in Wiktionary should give information about the proper noun itself, ie. linguistic information like etymology, synonyms, translations, etc. What I find the most logical is that:
  • In the Wiktionary article Greek, the word "Greece" should be linked to the Wiktionary article (Greece).
  • In the Wiktionary article Greece, the word "Greece" should be linked to the Wikipedia article (Greece).
Of course that goes for other countries as well. What do you think about it? D.D. 08:40 Mar 3, 2003 (UTC)
The Wiktionary article "Greek" should also link to the Wikipedia article w:Greek language Eclecticology
I agree with that. D.D. 08:45 Mar 3, 2003 (UTC)

Change to 'Language' definition[edit]

I removed the text below partly because it was probably too long and also because it may be factually incorrect in places.

A language spoken primarily in Greece and Cyprus with is older form, proto-greek spoken in Crete nearly 4000 years ago. It is a tongue that has given to almost all of the Indo-European languages, since a lot of its words are found in them. Its influence in those languages is mostly because of the Roman Empire for the Northen Territories (the Greek Culture was very present in the Roman Empire) and for Alexender the Great Empire for the Eastern part; for Alexender had chosen a new form of Greek that was derived from the Athenian one to be used as a franca langua for all the Empire (The modern Greek is itself derived from the Alexender version). Today there are several dialects; Modern Greek.

Like as in it's all Greek to me? L☺g☺maniac 22:16, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
The question is whether it has figurative use outside of that term, which it seems to. DCDuring TALK 22:57, 11 January 2010 (UTC)
