Greek is spoken by some thirteen million people, principally in the Mediterranean nation of Greece, and by significant communities in Eastern Europe and North America. An Indo-European language, it shares genealogical roots with many mother tongues across Europe and southern Asia; however, it is most closely related to modern varieties of Ionic and Doric Greek, such as Tsakonian.
