It simply helps learners to overcome the challenge of a new script in the early stages. The transliteration system used in this book is a close phonetic representation of Greek words transcribing their sounds into English script. The Pronunciation guide in this introductory section will make most points about pronunciation clear. Keep in mind that although we can always ask native speakers to repeat something for us. We call it an informal transliteration system because various ways have been devised to represent Greek sounds using a western alphabet but no standard form has ever been established. 2 Record yourself and compare your pronunciation with that of a native speaker. Find a native Greek speaker to help you and fInd out about Greek social clubs. between 20 and 30 minutes if possible. Whenever possible repeat aloud. so that the learner can start to understand and speak the language without the obstacle of the new script.). It cannot even be found in a written form of any kind including books. 4 Listen to the recording as many times and as frequently as possible. Transliteration has been used in the dialogues and vocabulary boxes in the fIrst ten units. etc. It will build up your listening and speaking skills as well as your confIdence! 6 Use every opportunity to speak the language. 4 Ask native speakers how a specifIc sound is formed. This section looks at the culture of the Greek people and their country. there are some exercises that cannot be done with the book alone but in such cases the material is always covered by other activities in the specifIc unit or in the Revision tests. If you are interested in practising the Greek script further. Transliteration does have its shortcomings but its value. However. Greek is not a difficult language to speak. signs or public notices. 2 Try to work towards short-term goals. 3 Ask native speakers to listen to your pronunciation and tell you how to improve it. in Greek restaurants or social clubs. This book uses the standard Greek alphabet alongside an informal transliteration system. You don't have to go to Greece to do this. work out how long you'll spend in a particular unit and work within this time limit. even after some considerable effort. How to be successful at learning Greek Transliteration versus Greek script? Transliteration cannot replace the Greek script. 5 Hear yourself speak! If at all possible fmd yourself a quiet place to study where you can speak out loud.Before you learn the Greek alphabet Contrary to popular opinion. Watch them and practise at home in front of a mirror. grasp any opportunity to hear the language (by native speakers in Greece. on the radio. Where Greek offers a more serious challenge to the learner is in reading and writing the language. from the same publisher as this title. native speakers or your teacher. look out for Teach Yourself Beginner's Greek Script and the Teach Yourself Beginner's Greek course. but it has been widely accepted that the more we hear a language and try to tune into its sounds and rhythms the more we can speak it in practice. Many learners sometimes complain about not being able to speak a language. 5 Make a list of words that give you pronunciation trouble and practise them. It is not vital to acquire a perfect accent. it is highly advisable to use it since it will help you a great deal to pronounce Greek correctly. and distinguish sounds . The aim is to be understood. The book makes use of both transliteration and Greek script. here are a number of techniques for working on your pronunciation: 1 Listen carefully to the recording.

Some Greek idioms
Greek is rich in idioms. It is best to learn these by heart because translation often does not mean much. Idioms add a new linguistic dimension to the language which would otherwise be very sterile. Look at the difference between 'It is raining heavily' and 'It is raining cats and dogs'. The latter brings extra 'weight' and 'importance' to the meaning. Likewise in Greek: BptXE1nupu nOAu contrasted to PixvE1 KupEKAonooupu, or PixvE1 nunuOEe;, or BptXE1 IlE 1:0 1:0UAOUIl1. Below is a list of all the idioms in this unit. Why don't you create another list from the previous units? It will be a good revision exercise for you. We sweated our guts out! (because of you) It rained cats and dogs! It is all gloom and doom! I eat to bursting point! The tables turn! Next year, the year after next! I was very eager/excited, I was dying to ... That goes without saying!

The cartoon illustrates the Greek notion of time, especially in a business context and particularly in the public sector where assignments move slowly, or stand still, before, or after, coffee! The cartoon's question probably refers to a supervisor or boss and a certain deadline. It reads: (for) when did he/she say that he/she wants it? rIA rIA rIA rIA MEElA YPIO A YPIO I:HMEPA TQPA for for for for the day after tomorrow tomorrow today (right) now

'Tag' questions
The following examples show you the different forms of 'tag' question in English that have only one equivalent in Greek! It's very easy for you to remember. '£1:0"1OEVelvm; Isn't it? 'E1:O"1 OEVEivm; 'E1:O"1 OEVelvm; 'E1:O"1 OEVelVU1; George studies hard, doesn't he? Mary does not work, does she? Tim cannot swim, can he?

1 This and that
You have seen lots of words like a\>'toc;;, \>'to and a\>'tc1in previous a units, and 'toO'a, a\>'to, 'toO'o, 't&'t010,&K&lVO, 't&'tOla and a\>'tll in this unit. These are all pronouns; like the other pronouns you have already learned they have different forms for gender (mlf/n), singular or plural. These are 'demonstrative' pronouns rather than personal, or possessive, pronouns, which were explained in previous units. The most important demonstrative pronouns are:

Try to learn the different forms of these pronouns in the box below. You can refer back to this page whenever you need to.

Don't confuse the use of a\>'toc;;,a\>'tll and a\>'to as demonstrative pronouns with a\>'t6c;;,a\>'tll, a\>'to as personal pronouns! The fIrst always come before nouns and the latter before verbs. Some examples: . . . (before nouns) A\>'toC;; OpOJ.lO~ 0 A\>'tll T] yuvaiKa A\>'to 'to K'tipto But ... (before verbs) A\>'toC;; SXEt 060 anina. A\>'tll dVal VOaOKOJ.la. A\>'to dVal aKpt~o.

Ta~ .•. This is a click of the front teeth while breathing in, often accompanied by a nod of the head. The tilting of the head for a no answer is 'up-and-down' in non-verbal Greek rather than 'left-toright' in non-verbal English! This non-verbal difference combined with the confusing sound of 'yes' (val) that sounds almost like 'no' means that you need to be careful when native speakers use it.

4 The past continuous
This is another past tense showing 'duration' in the past for example (a) it was raining (for some time = duration) when he left the house (past continuous tense in English), and (b) It had been raining for three days last week when I called off my trip (past perfect continuous in English). Both tenses would have been translated as &~P&X& in Greek and not &~P&~& (it rained) that shows no 'duration' but one, single action in the simple past. Some examples: It rained yesterday. (no duration) It had been raining for five hours yesterday before it stopped. (duration) It was raining the day before yesterday when John came. (duration) It rained cats and dogs for 72 hours (and then it stopped). (no duration) It had been raining cats and dogs constantly! (and it probably kept on raining) (duration)

3 Verbs in the present perfect tense
This unit introduces you to another important verb tense in the past called 'present perfect'. It is similar to the English in examples like 'have gone', 'has taken'; it is formed with the verb &Xro + present perfect form (always ending in -&1). Some examples from this unit:

'ExouJ.1s 1taSl. Ma~ exsl~ ByaAsl 'tTJv 1tio'tTJ. 'Exw o'tsvaxwPTJ9d. 'ExouJ.1s 'tTJAS<pWVtlOSl. 'Exouv OXSOlaOS1.

We have been (gone). We have sweated our guts out. I have worried. We have called. They have planned.

'EBpsxs sxge~ 1tev'ts rops~ 1tptV va o'taJ.1a'ttl0s1. 'EBpsxs 1tpoxge~ o'tav tlP9s o rtaVVTJ~. 'EBps~s KapSKA01tOOapa yw sBo0J.1tlv'ta ouo rops~. 'EBpsxs ouvexsw KapSKA01t()Oapa!

An important point that is not always initially obvious, is that the verb form used in the present perfect is a familiar form already learned as part of the future tense. Look at the list overleaf:

Greek belongs to the large family ofIndo-European or Indo-Hittite languages. City states had many different language variations at the time but the four main groups or dialects were the following: . Archaic Greek. specifically that of Phoenicians. The Phoenician alphabet which was introduced to Greece around 1100 BC contained 22 separate signs for the consonants but none for the vowels. with the value of vowels as known today. The Greeks innovated the letters. It developed across the Balkan peninsula around 2000 BC. continued to undergo many reforms and changes. which started replacing the syllabic script.

Arcado-Cypriot, Ionic-Attic.

Doric, Aeolic, and

Hellenistic Greek. The Ionic form of the alphabet was adopted by most city states, thus making a uniformed alphabet throughout the Greek world. During Hellenistic times the Greek alphabet has served as a model for the Latin and Cyrillic alphabet. The Attic dialect, actually an offspring of the Ionic, finally dominated the other dialects in the first century when philosophers such as Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates made Athens the centre of the Greek civilization. In this period and especially close to AD 337, a new form of the Attic dialect appeared with simpler syntax and morphology, a stress accent, and loan words from Latin and Semitic origins. This was the Koine (the common) dialect also called the Hellenistic Koine or the Alexandrian Koine. Hellenistic Greek is the form also known as New Testament Greek (in which the Gospel and other books of the New Testament of the Bible were first written). Byzantine Greek. This was both an imperial and an ecclesiastic language. It is still the ecclesiastic language of the Greek Orthodox church today. Modern Greek. The majority of the foreign words in the Greek language are of Turkish origin because of the occupation from 1453-1821. After 1821, the language was principally divided into the general vernacular (Demotic Greek), and the language of education and literature (Katharevousa), which existed in parallel development for twenty centuries and competed for acceptance and establishment for about 150 years after the Turkish occupation. Demotic Greek prevailed as the

everday spoken language whereas Katharevousa continued in government and scientific books. Demotic Greek was proclaimed the official language of Greece in 1977 and the use of one stress mark instead of five took place in 1982. Classical Greek word forms continue to have a great influence in the world's scientific and technical vocabulary, and make up a large part of the technical vocabulary of English.
