Greek has been created in the Greek alphabet (the oldest constantly utilized alphabet, and the initial to introduce vowels) since the 9th century BC in Greece (before that in Linear B), and the 4th century BC in Cyprus (before that in Cypriot syllabary). Greek literature has a continuous history of almost 3 thousand years.

Greek is a code recognized by an extraordinarily wealthy vocabulary. In regard to the origins of words, historic Greek vocabulary was really of Indo-European origin, but with a extensive amount of borrowings within the idioms of the populations that inhabited Greece before the arrival of Proto-Greeks. Words of non-Indo-European origin is traced into Greek from because early because Mycenaean times; they include a big amount of Greek toponyms. The wide majority of Modern Greek vocabulary is straight inherited from historic Greek, although in certain instances words have changed meanings. Words of foreign origin have entered the code primarily from Latin, Italian and Ottoman Turkish. During elder periods of the Greek code, loan words into Greek acquired Greek inflections, exiting therefore just a foreign root word. Modern borrowings (within the 20th century on), specifically from French and English, are usually not inflected.

Like many Indo-European languages, Greek is very inflected. Greek grammar has come down through the ages very intact, though with some simplifications. As an example, Modern Greek attributes 2 numbers: singular and plural. The double amount of Ancient occasions was abandoned at a extremely early stage. The instrumental case of Mycenaean Greek disappeared in the Archaic period, and the dative-locative of Ancient Greek disappeared in the late Hellenistic. Four instances, nominative, genitive, accusative and vocative, stay in Modern Greek. The 3 historic gender noun categories (masculine, feminine and neuter) not fell from employ, while adjectives agree in gender, amount, and case with their respective nouns, because do their articles. Greek verbs have synthetic inflectional types for:

* mood � Ancient Greek: indicative, subjunctive, important, and optative; Modern Greek: indicative and important (alternative modal functions are expressed by periphrastic constructions)
* amount � singular, plural (archaic Greek additionally had a dual)
* voice � Ancient Greek: active, center, and passive; Modern Greek: active and medio-passive
* tense � Ancient Greek: present, previous, future; Modern Greek: previous and non-past (future is expressed by a periphrastic construction)
* individual � initially, 2nd, third
* aspect � Ancient Greek: imperfective, perfective (traditionally called aorist), perfect (occasionally also known as perfective, see note about terminology); Modern Greek: perfective and imperfective
