Morphosyntax:

Modern Greek Dialects are characterized by a variety of suffixes concerning the inflectional endings of the imperfect tense. In Lesbos, inflectional suffixes vary from village to village. Certain types descend from Ancient Greek while others have been developed via paradigmatic levelling. The field work has been conducted with the use of a questionnaire.
