  • The giant called Greek language can't be tamed easily! The language constantly evolves, ideas and the world change, just as our communication needs do (Ο "γίγαντας" που λέγεται Ελληνική γλώσσα δεν δαμάζεται εύκολα! Η γλώσσα εξελίσσεται συνεχώς, τα δεδομένα αλλάζουν, ο κόσμος μας μεταβάλλεται και μαζί αλλάζουν οι επικοινωνιακές μας ανάγκες)[1]
