Dr. Ioanna Sitaridou, Deputy Director of the Cambridge Centre for Greek Studies, discusses the evolution of Pontic Greek within the broader context of Asia Minor Greek and in relation to the emergence of other Modern Greek dialects. Romeyka, an endangered Greek variety still spoken in North-East Turkey, has maintained the infinitive, which as such does not exist in Modern Greek. Dr. Sitaridou explores the chronology of Proto-Pontic evolution, to which Romeyka belongs, and explains how its split from other Greek varieties has been dated as occurring at least 500 years earlier than previously thought.
