The Greek alphabet, first recorded in 750 BC, is one of the oldest in continuous use. Redolent with ancient associations of gods and goddesses, epic warfare, warriors and nymphs, the history of Greek language and culture is closely linked with that of European civilisation itself. Although not as ubiquitous as it was in the Ancient World, modern Greek remains widely spoken. Part of the Indo-European family, is remains the first language of about 14 million people in Greece and Cyprus, where it is also the official language, and it is a recognised minority tongue in areas of Turkey, Italy and Albania. Greek immigrant communities abroad, particularly in the USA, have also extended the language’s global reach. The Greek alphabet has been in use for thousands of years and has not significantly changed since.
