The Modern Greek language
Modern Greek (Νέα ελληνικά, but also refered to as Ρωμαίικα or Γραικικά) is a Hellenic language spoken in, unsurprisingly, Greece. It shares certain similarities with the Ancient Greek language, but is not easilly mutually intelligible with it (at least not without extensive additional training).
Greek is written in the Greek alphabet, which has not changed much since the old times. Lately, however, Greek spelling has been increasingly standardised, and consistent accents of just one type have been applied to the Greek language.
Interestingly, you don't have infinitives in the Modern Greek language (thus, no words like 'to do', 'to see'), and you use the present tense first person form (e.g. you say 'I do' - 'κάνω', 'I see' - 'βλέπω') as the basic form.
About Modern Greek conjugation
Modern Greek conjugation is a process in which Modern Greek verbs are modified in order to accord with various other features of the phrase and its context. In Modern Greek, you need these basic forms:
- the present tense first person form - 'βρίσκω' ('I find'), 'παίζω' ('I play'), etc.
- the past tense first person form - 'βρήκα' ('I found'), 'έπαιξα' (I played), etc.
- the participle - 'βρήκει' ('found'), 'παίξει' ('played')
Modern Greek verbs are conjugated based on the following main features:
- person the verb changes depending on the person it is referring to, e.g. 'εγώ διαβάζω', but 'αυτή διαβάζει')
- number ('εγώ τρώω' but 'εμείς τρώμε' - 'I eat' versus 'we eat' - notice how the verb for 'eat' changes?),
- tense (you have e.g. the present, past, future tenses in Modern Greek),
- voice (indicates the actor - for example, mediopassive or active, e.g. 'βλέπομαι' (I appear) vs. 'βλέπω' - 'I see',
- mood (which indicates the attitude, e.g. you have 'μίλησε' for '(please) speak!', etc.),
In the Modern Greek CoolJugator, we try to provide you as many of these factors as possible, although we also try to focus on the most important aspects of conjugation. Moreover, we always try to show how forms relate to one another.
