[quote author=Episcopus link=board=6;threadid=177;start=0#845 date=1055789032]<br />Finally I just want to say that I am extremely jealous of all these freaks' being able to read Ancient Greek?! Can you speak it?<br />[/quote]<br /><br />To the best of my knowledge no one really tries to make classical Greek a spoken language, though some people are experimenting with spoken Latin. It seems like a good idea... you'll learn the language better.<br /><br />But as for Greek, no one tries that, probably for two reasons. One, no one wants to profane the language by asking directions to the agora. Two, Modern Greek.<br /><br />I'd love to be able to converse in Greek. I'd just have to pic a dialect.
