After all this you still write Greeklish!

The destructive fashion of the day which is not at all innocent as in the coming years it will surely have destroyed much of our unique culture. Unfortunately, the majority considers the issue non-dangerous and continues to support it if it does not understand its importance.

At the same time that in other parts of the world the Ancient Greek language is considered the basis and future of computers and its place in the best universities in the world is being voted on, the youth (mainly) of Greece insists…. Greeklish-τικα! The percentage of graduates of higher education schools (universities and technical institutes) that use Greeklish is not only quite large, it is also unacceptable.

It is not possible for a high school graduate – whatever it is – to use Greeklish and replace it with his native Greek and the universal English language.

If you want to be considered and called a “scientist” you must first learn to write correctly in your native language as well as in the official international language. Otherwise your degree is not worth framing either. Greek inscriptions appear in many universities around the world as well as in museums.

A few examples are:

1) The symbol of Boston College of Massachusetts – “αἰὲν ἀριστεύειν… καὶ ὑπείροχον ἔμμεναι ἄλλων, μηδέ γένος πατέρων άσχυνέμεν…” (Ιλιάς Ζ ‘, στ. 208). (Always excel… and be superior to others, and do not shame the generation of your ancestors…).

«Μέντης Ἀγχιάλοιο δαίφρονος εὔχομαι εἶναι υἱός, ​​ἀτὰρ Ταφίοισι φιληρέτμοισιν ἀνάσσω. Νῦν δ ‘ὧδε ξὺν νηὶ κατήλυθονἠδ’ ἑτάροισιν πλέων ἐπὶ οἴνοπα πόντον ἐπ ‘ἀλλοθρόους ἀνθρώπους, ἐς Τεμέσην μετὰ χαλκόν, ἄγω δ’ αἴθωνα σίδηρον. ” (Odyssey, Α.180-184) “I have arrived here with my companions on my ship, I travel to a place in a foreign language, Temesa, to the ocean of wine, to give iron, copper to take back.” Inscription on the Eiserner Steg bridge in Frankfurt, Germany.

Alexandria Egypt Tolls

4) Tolls outside Alexandria, Egypt to Cairo with the inscription “ALEXANDRIA”.

The inscription of the city in Greek was a demand of the mayors of the region of Alexandria in honor of Alexander the Great.

For the subject of the ” Hellenic Quest ” that was advertised as a system where ancient Greek will be the basis of computers, there were some serious and based on doubts. The whole text was not based on truths but this does not mean that the Greek language is not important. Especially that the letters correspond to numbers is documented by Pythagoras to the most important analysts and scientists worldwide.

It is a gift from God to be able to speak this language from the day we are born. And of course we can learn other foreign languages ​​much more easily than other peoples.

After all – do you still write Greeklish?
