Subject Area Glossary: Greek-English Vocabulary. Curriculum Bulletin Number 14.
Chicago Board of Education, IL. Dept. of Curriculum.
A glossary of Greek counterparts for terms used in the Chicago public schools' curricula is intended to be used by teachers of native Greek-speaking, limited-English speaking students. An introductory section outlines Greek phonology and pronunciation, and ensuing sections provide English vocabulary lists with both the Greek orthography and phonetic transcription of the Greek terms. The vocabulary lists cover words commonly used in art, audiovisual aids, foreign languages, language arts, library science, mathematics, music, physical education, recreation, Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC), science, social studies, and English as a second language. The International Phonetic Alphabet is used as the standard for pronunciation to point out the distinctions between the sound system of the Greek language and that of English. (MSE)
