The Center for the Greek Language is an academic institution dedicated to the description and documentation of trends in the Modern Greek language at home and abroad.
The Center for the Greek Language takes the view that the cultivation of the Modern Greek language is to be achieved not by normative restrictions, but through serious study of the language in all its contemporary range and historical depth, chiefly through the study of exemplary texts.
The Center for the Greek Language is particularly concerned with the linguistic support of return migrants and of Greeks abroad, especially those in the Black Sea region.
The aims of the Center for the Greek Language are:
- the fostering and promotion of the Greek language within and outside Greece
- through this, the reinforcement of the national identity of the Greeks of the diaspora
- the organization of the teaching of Greek to foreigners in Greece and abroad
- the support of the teachers of the Greek language in Greece and abroad
- the production of teaching materials, and anything else which contributes to the promotion and dissemination of the Greek language generally.
The Center for the Greek Language acts as a coordinating, advisory and strategic organ of the Ministry of Education on matters of language education and policy.
