ප්‍රවර්ගය:Hellenic languages

විකිපීඩියා වෙතින්

Articles related to the Hellenic languages, the branch of the Indo-European language family whose principal member is Greek.[1] In most classifications, Hellenic consists of Greek alone,[2][3] but some linguists use the term Hellenic to refer to a group consisting of Greek proper and other varieties thought to be related but different enough to be separate languages, either among ancient neighbouring languages[4] or among modern varieties of Greek.[5] A family under the name "Hellenic" has been suggested to group together Greek proper and the ancient Macedonian language, which is barely attested and whose degree of relatedness to Greek is not well known. The suggestion of a "Hellenic" group with two branches, in this context, represents the idea that Macedonian was not simply a dialect within Greek but a "sibling language" outside the group of Greek varieties proper.[4][6]
