This is not a Joke ... its reality.
The following is a short speech that Prof. Zolotas (Former President of
the Greek Republic), gave in USA some years ago.
He tried to use 99% Greek words and thus prove that the Greek Language
is truly International. All words used are Greek words (the origin, the
routes) but have been widely used in the English Language (and others).


Speech by Prof. Zolotas

''Kyrie, It is Zeus' anathema on our epoch for the dynamism of our
economies and the heresy of our economic methods and policies that we
should agonize between the Scylla of numismatic plethora and the
Charybdis of economic anaemia. It is not my idiosyncrasy to be ironic
or sarcastic but my diagnosis would be that politicians are rather
cryptoplethorists. Although they emphatically stigmatize numismatic
plethora, energize it through their tactics and practices.
Our policies have to be based more on economic and less on political
criteria. Our gnomon has to be a metron between political, strategic
and philanthropic scopes. Political magic has always been anti-economic.
In an epoch characterized by monopolies, oligopolies, menopsonies,
monopolistic antagonism and polymorphous inelasticities, our policies
have to be more orthological. But this should not be metamorphosed into
plethorophobia which is endemic among academic economists. Numismatic
symmetry should not antagonize economic acme. A greater harmonization
between the practices of the economic and numismatic archons is basic.
Parallel to this, we have to synchronize and harmonize more and more our
economic and numismatic policies pan-ethnically.
These scopes are more practical now, when the prognostics of the
political and economic barometer are halcyonic.
The history of our didymous organisations in this sphere has been
didactic and their gnostic practices will always be a tonic to the
polyonymous and idiomorphous ethnical economics. The genesis of the
programmed organisations will dynamize these policies. I sympathise,
therefore, with the aposties and the hierarchy of our organisations in
their zeal to programme orthodox economic and numismatic policies,
although I have some logomachy with them. I apologize for having
tyrannized you with my hellenic phraseology. In my epilogue, I
emphasize my eulogy to the philoxenous autochthons of this cosmopolitan
metropolis and my encomium to you, kyrie, and the stenographers.''
