Cypriot Greek, spoken on the Eastern Mediterranean island of Cyprus and by major diasporic Cypriot communities in London and in Australia, is often quoted as as the “last living dialect of Modern Greek”. In this lecture Marina Terkourafi, professor of Sociolinguistics at Leiden University, examines the linguistic differences between Cypriot Greek and Standard Modern Greek. She also pays attention to the history of Cypriot Greek, other Greek dialects and language ideologies in Greece and Cyprus.
