“It is the nature of the Greek language to be exact, subtle and clear. The imprecision and the lack of immediate perspicuity into which English occasionally deviates* and from which German occasionally emerges, is quite foreign to Greek.”

*”When I say ‘English’ I do not mean the English of Administrators, politicians, and important people who write letters to The Times. Imprecision would be the chief quality of this language, but for its weary pomposity and its childish delight in foolish metaphors.”

–H.D. F. Kitto, The Greeks.
