The echoes of Greek are heard in many modern languages. For example, the
abstract vocabulary of the modern European languages derives largely from
the vocabulary of the Greek philosophers and scholars, whether directly or
via Latin writers who were educated according to the Greek tradition. First
published in 1913, Antoine Meillet's history of Greek shows how the
language, derived originally from Indo-European, developed over time in
response to sociological and geographical factors. Meillet argues that its
complexity is due to the constant borrowing of vocabulary and grammar from
contemporary languages and regional dialects. Despite - or because of - its
flexible and ever-changing nature, and the lack of consistency in usage
between individual city states, Greek eventually became the language of
great works of literature, philosophy and science.
