The Muslim "Greeks" of Turkey

They still call themselves Ρωμαίοι and speak Greek between them which they call Ρωμαίϊκα, but they are Muslims.

This guy is called Adem Ekiz and is a "Turkish" singer:

I'm not quite sure what exactly she (Dr Sitaridou) is claiming here. Even English uses the infinitive in a similar/identical(?) way to Greek.

Also, when she states they retain "a grammatical structure found in classical Greek", the example they offer is:

"If we had gone there, it would have been beautiful."

This is a perfect example of the Third Conditional, no? :?

Really? And the English-speakers too? :?

This comment of yours gives us an insight in what you WANT to hear (wannabee Greek) but I would rather see and hear the facts. Thanks.

[P.S. I don't 'do' dishes. I 'smash' them. :lol: Enough 'infinitives' for you? Or 'do' you really not 'appreciate' the subtleties of linguistics? Too many infinitives for ya ..... :P ]
