Does anyone know any good sources of information on Greek as used in Cyprus? Main areas of interest:

1) Institutional language. Usually no serious problems here, because it\'s standard Greek, but sometimes it would be useful to have more background information on law, institutions - and abbreviations.

2) Local words, vernacular words. I\'m not really concerned with strong dialect, but just the sort of words that find their way into documents which are otherwise written in standard Greek. This seems to happen especially in the context of building. Examples: tsiakilli (probably \"gravel\") and compounds (e.g. chavarotsiakilla), tsekoladoura (word seen at long intervals over the years: a kind of floor covering), etc.
