Comments on subclassification

Two enclaves of Greek speakers are found in Calabria and Apulia of present-day Italy. They are subsumed in E16/E17/E18/E19's entry on Modern Greek [ell], noting, however that the ``Greek of Italy and that of Corsica are probably distinct languages''. Indeed, especially the Apulian variety of Otranto is not intelligible to Greek speakers of Greece ( H. F. Tozer 1889 :37 ), and thus merits a separate entry. I owe this observation of Raoul Zamponi. See also: Modern Greek [ell].
