GREEK BASIC COURSE, VOLUME I.
OBOLENSKY, SERGE; AND OTHERS
THE GREEK LANGUAGE DESCRIBED IN VOLUME I OF THIS INTRODUCTORY COURSE FOR ADULTS IS THE "KATHOMILUMENI" VARIETY, THAT OF THE STANDARD SPEECH OF EDUCATED GREEKS. (VOLUME III OF THE COURSE INTRODUCES THE MORE FORMAL KATHAREVUSA VARIETY.) EACH VOLUME OF THE COURSE CONTAINS 25 UNITS PLUS FIVE REVIEW SECTIONS. A TYPICAL UNIT IN VOLUME I CONSISTS OF--(1) A BASIC DIALOGUE OF ABOUT TEN SENTENCES, (2) A NARRATIVE WRITTEN IN GREEK SCRIPT CORRESPONDING TO THE SITUATION OF THE DIALOGUE, (3) RESPONSE DRILLS BASED ON THE DIALOGUE AND NARRATIVE, (4) GRAMMATICAL NOTES, (5) SUBSTITUTION, TRANSFORMATION, AND CORRELATION-SUBSTITUTION DRILLS, AND (6) A RESPONSE EXERCISE OR SUGGESTED DISCUSSION TOPIC TO ENCOURAGE THE STUDENTS TO USE THE GREEK LANGUAGE IN FREE CONVERSATIONS. THE MATERIAL IN THE FIRST TEN UNITS OF THIS TEXT IS WRITTEN BOTH IN GREEK CHARACTERS AND IN A MODIFIED PHONETIC TRANSCRIPTION THAT USES THE ROMAN ALPHABET FOR MOST SOUNDS. THE TRANSCRIPTION AND THE GREEK ALPHABET ARE PRESENTED TO THE STUDENT IN UNIT 1 ALONG WITH A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE SOUND SYSTEM OF THE LANGUAGE. TAPE RECORDINGS OF THE ENTIRE VOLUME WERE MADE IN THE FOREIGN SERVICE INSTITUTE STUDIOS. THIS TEXT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FOR $1.75 FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT OF DOCUMENTS, U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE, WASHINGTON, D.C. 20402. (JD)
