    I asked that here, too:

    They have yet to release the PDF in the original German!

    I've PM'd you about it. I can't find much literature in English though... Do you understand Italian or Greek? I can help you with Italian if you need.

    That is one of the arguments against that theory- however the counter-argument is that the language evolved in synchrony with Greek on the mainland of Greece and that constant contact and the Roman Empire etc etc would support this. The language is quite heavily italianised, but this is tricky- because it's not standard Italian really (ignoring perhaps the most recent period post 1950s) but rather Southern Italian (Sicilian-Calabrian) dialects, which in turn contain a Greek substrate influence- so the circle goes round and round, like a sirtaki!

    It's difficult to gauge, I asked a Greek member here and he (?) said he could understand about 64% of the words- but it's always difficult. The language is a bit of a mystery too, some would have it dating back to the original Spartan settlements of the 8th century BCE whereas others claim a far later Byzantine date. I personally think a bit of both could be the case. Byzantine catholicism still remains in the South too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griko_people#Religion

    Re languages- interesting what you wrote about Scottish Gaelic. Did you know that there are still two areas of Southern Italy where a form of Greek is spoken. "Grecanico"- sadly the language(s)/dialect(s) are also diminishing although there has been renewed cultural interest of late. I fear that the language will perish in a couple of generations. I've only ever met two people who could speak it at all.

    Hi, thanks for the response. Who would I have to speak to in order to return my account to normal? Most of the interesting stuff is in other threads . . .

    Hi Demogorgon, I've just joined the forum in the past few days, but now I can't post and there are some bars across my avatar. Has my account been frozen?

    EDIT: I was being too simplistic in my "State" characterization. Not only are the Night Watchman features there, but also the "state-capitalist" ones (military-industrial complex, regulations and standards specifically for state enterprises, areas of the economy under state as opposed to common ownership and direction).
