Doric dialects of the same (Peloponnese) and the dialects of Greece in the northwest are part of a separate group. Ionia was at its peak in the VIII century BC. At this time there were born cultural foundations of different areas of life of the Greek nation. Develop the economy, science and art, philosophy. Began to take shape and the Greek literary language. This was the initial period of history, not only Greek, but Greek literature. The development of language and culture entailed the formation of writing.

By time of the ancient letter was lost and a new written language probably developed on the basis of the Phoenician alphabet. Phoenicians during this period were active in trade with the Greeks. By 6.7 centuries BC policies pushed completely tribal groups. At the same time, there are generations of literature, as a drama and lyric poetry, which led to the separation and Greek into genres. Around the year 500 BC began the classical period in Greek history. It was the rule of Athens and the predominance of Attic dialect. Actively promoted literature, philosophy and oratory. However, along with the Attic dialect in the course were Ionian languages, which led to the formation of Koine – universal language, which was used not only in literature but in everyday speech.

With the onset of the crisis of the polis because of the internecine conflicts that resulted in the subjugation of Macedonia, on the territory of Indus to the Danube formed an empire, rules which Alexander of Macedon. And during this period intensified the relationship between Greek culture and other cultures, vodivshih the empire of nations. Learn more about this with Western Union.

The development of speech occurred predominantly in the policy. And in the times of Empire is more developed writing system, and changes occurred in education. And since each of the forms of language has evolved differently. In colloquial use local dialects, but with this happening formation obschegrecheskogo Koine language.

All these factors exerted a strong influence on the further development of the Greek language. During the reign of Rome in the Balkans (2 nd century BC), under the influence of Greek and Roman culture hit. However, Latin and, in turn, is sufficient strongly influenced the development of the language of the Greeks.

Statutory language has become the Attic language – the language of prose 6.5 centuries BC. Hence arose the name attitsizm – one of the historical development of the Greek language. The essence of it was avoiding falling into the vocabulary of the language new meanings and grammatical forms that are not classic. For example, renewing the old, long disused form. All this has led to what is written literary and spoken languages are very different. This trend continues even today.
