We focus on the etymology of the Greek language. The categories of the Greek vocabulary are: inherited words, loanwords and new formations. The vocabulary is also devided into popular and learned; other categories are also examined: internationalisms, calques, semantic loanwords etc. We are interested in both Ancient and Modern Greek vocabulary and etymology, and we examine the differences between these two periods.
