Ελληνικά (Ellinika) – Facts about the Greek language
An official language of Greece and Cyprus, Greek is one of the oldest documented languages in the history of languages, with traces of Greek being used as far back as 3,500 years ago. Approximately 15 million people worldwide speak Greek, with the largest concentration of native speakers in Greece and Cyprus, as well as in communities in Bulgaria, Albania and Turkey. Greek emigrant communities also form a large contingent of Greek speakers with the Greek community in Melbourne, Australia counted as the third largest urban Greek population in the world.
Greek belongs to its own separate branch of the Indo-European family of languages. In terms of related languages, it is only loosely related to Armenian and Indo-Iranian languages and stands alone with closest relations more clearly witnessed between ancient languages such as Ancient Macedonian.
Greek is written using its own alphabet, consisting of 24 letters and was the first language to include vowels.
