In Greek is "Yiati", it stands as well for "why"
I dont believe there is a different between mainland greek and cypriot greek on this one."se agapo" (long form) "sagapo" (short form)even if there is another phrase in the cypriot dialect, they will know what this means. Cypriot Greek speakers can understand and speak mainland greek pretty much fluently.We can understand Greek very well-its our language, the Greeks are the ones who have problems understanding us- but anyway if you want to tell it in Cypriot you'll say 'agapose'
happy easter everyone
Someone from Cyprus is called a CYPRIOT. However, given the fractious relations between ethnic Greeks and ethnic Turks on the island, the Cypriot will usually add what ethnic group he belongs to, e.g. Greek Cypriot, Turkish Cypriot, Armenian Cypriot, British Cypriot, etc.
Cypriot is the adjective for the country of Cyprus. There are the following languages: Cypriot Maronite Arabic Cypriot Greek Cypriot Turkish
the greek cypriot population is 760000
Like in Modern Koine Greek..Efharisto...lol!by many linguists cypriot (and cretan) it's not consider a dialect because of the small diference...
If you mean how do you say Good Afternoon in Cypriot, Cypriots speak a greek dialect and it is called "Kalispera" ("kaleespera")
Greek-Cypriots speak greek so hello in greek is "Γεια σου" which is pronounced YIA SOUIn the Cyprian dialect you can say 'sheretume'
thats a greek-cypriot word, it means bottle
Nope they r greek/Irish not Turkish =] they look cypriot but they arent =] ^^ Wrong. Tulisa Contostavlos is half Irish and half greek cypriot but Dino Contostavlos(Dappy) is full greekcypriot, as both of their dads are greekcypriot, dinos mum is greek cypriot but tulisa's mum is Irish
Cypriots Speak their own dialect of Greek, aswell as Standard Greek. Thyere are a few ways to say this. I would use "Ti kaneis" may sound like "Di Ganeis" Don't forget that many people in Cyprus are Turks, speaking Turkish...But I can't tell you how they would say how are you.
Ευχαριστώ πολύ ef-ha-ri-stO po-lEE just like in greek
australian ( but greek cypriot decent)
she's born in London but has Greek parents and Grandparents
Cyrpiots (kiprioi -Greek, Kipreoi - Cypriot)
Greek in the south, Turkish in the North (Occupied area). The local Cypriots also speak the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot dialects of their languages. So really the language to know would be Standard Greek. But Cypriots generally have good English, it is used to British Tourism and was part of the British empire.
''Kalamaras'' is a word used from Greek-Cypriots when referred to mainland Greek people. Derives from Classical Greek and means ''Educated man''.
Yes, Cyprus has always had a mix of peoples and mixed marriages are quite common.
