Not really nothing is really similar to Greek. Latin is the most similar language to Greek so therefore Italian and Spanish are the most similar languages today to Greek but G…reek is probably the 7th most language similar to them. Some words are the same though, e.g Piscina, fantastica, technologia, putana, programa, fantasma, porta, moderno. A lot of the surnames are similar though. Kyrgiakos / Ciriaco Zannis / Zanni Mantzounis / Manzoni Kapelis / Cappelli Roussis / Rossi Papandreas / Papandrea Grekos / Greco Romanos / Romano Marinis / Marini + 100s more.
Yes , the Italian language may be called the language of love. But the same statement may be made about the Spanish, Romanian, Portuguese and French languages. These five - a…nd others such as Galician, Catalan and many others on the European side of the Mediterranean - are called members of the Romance family of languages. The term actually refers to their development from the interaction of ancient local languages with the ancient Latin of the conquering Romans. Additionally, all of the Romance languages are spoken in countries that are known for beautiful scenery, fine food and interesting tourist activities. All three of these characteristics also work together to create romantic environments for those seeking love as well as for those who already have found it. So the play on words is accurate in terms of Italian (and the others in the linguistic family): a Romance language descended from Latin and linked with situations lending themselves to romance.
Verbal and written communications of insular and peninsular Italy are what Italian languages are. The main language is Italian, but with local and regional variations. Other l…anguages reflect the interactions across Italy's borders with Austria, France, Slovenia, and Switzerland.
