PALATKA DAILY NEWS Sunday Morning, November 13, iqzj REVIVAL OF CLASSIC GREEK Western Newspaper Welcomes Pos sibility of Its Becoming, In Time, a World Language. Were one to judge from the fuss made from time to time, one would suppose there was real need of an In ternational language. In the golden age of the English language the great queen addressed the ambassador at her court In Latin, and all diplomatic conversation and correspondence of Europe was In Latin. Erasmus, the great scholar and writer, who visited the court of Elizabeth's father, Henry VIII, wrote Latin works that pro duced an effect comparable to that produced by the writings of Voltaire two centuries later. Much pains have been expended in fabricating artificial language, such as Esperanto, to serve as the medium of communication. But such construc tions have no chance of practical adop tion, nor could they answer as well as actual language whether dead like T.ntin or living like English. There is a language, however, which is craduallv becoming again a living one, nnd which as a world lan guage would be ideal. The Greek uni versities nnd Greek men of culture, Including Venizelos himself, are en gaged in an attempt to restore ciassi Pa nnrltv nnd nerfectlon to modern Greek. It is said that the endeavor is by no means vain, and that gradu- ollv the sinciput model Is being BP proached. We may yet have the speech of Pericles, the written language of Plato, employed in social intercourse nnd commercial transactions, In con tracts, In courts of law, in houses of assembly.
