Tais dialektois dialogizo:metha eire:niko:s.

Tais dialektois dialogizo:metha eire:niko:s. [This is ANCIENT GREEK, not MODERN. The _e:_ represents "eta", the _o:_ represents "omega", and the _th_ represents "theta".

The word order in ancient Greek is highly flexible, so that any of the following sequences are permissible:
1. Tais dialektois dialogizo:metha eire:niko:s.
2. Tais dialektois eire:niko:s dialogizo:metha.
3. Dialogizo:metha tais dialektois eire:niko:s.
4. Dialogizo:metha eire:niko:s tais dialektois.
5. Eire:niko:s tais dialektois dialogizo:metha.
6. Eire:niko:s dialogizo:metha tais dialektois.

TAIS DIALEKTOIS -- "in/with languages", the dative plural of HE: DIALEKTOS used instrumentally.

DIALOGIZO:METHA -- "let us discuss/communicate", the subjunctive plural of DIALOGIZOMAI functioning as a jussive (command to the first person plural).

EIRE:NIKO:S -- "peacefully", the adverbial form of the adjective EIRE:NIKOS, itself a derivative of the noun HE: EIRE:NE: (the source of the English name "Irene", by the way). It is also possible to use the somewhat less common word EIRE:NAIO:S.

    Ph. D. in ancient Greek, college instructor of Latin, Greek, and other languages.
