I don't undertand your question at all.

Φοίνικος is the possesive form of the dorian word Φοινιξ (ξ + ο becomes κ in dorian languages) which is a palm tree.

E.g Ο καρπός του φοίνικος = The fruit of the palm tree

Thanks Akritas. This is riddiculus. A person who obviously does't have a clue about the Greek language writes things like "The consonant v does not exist in the greek language". LOL

I start to wonder if I should spend more time talking with theMacedonian2. This is a history forum were we should use legible sources.

Now before we see any linguistic texts about greek language written by amateur "historians", lets clear some things up. V is phonetically the letter beta in Greek. In attic it is always pronounced with no changes. In Dorian greek the letter β becomes "θ", "ζ" and "γ" when it is in front of short vocals, e.g. δήχου (βήχω, I cought), Ιφοζούμε (φοβούμαι, I fear), γλέπω (βλέπω, I see). When it occurs twice in a word it is pronounced "μπ" (b) e.g Σάμπα (Σάββατον, Saturday).

Obviously we know our grammar very well, so please we're not convinced with Donski articles. The http://www.historyofmacedonia.org site could be called nukethegreeksfromthefaceofearth.com easily so please. This is a serious forum.

Hi brothers!SmileAll consonants exist.We solved it 2500-2800 years before.Reason was a trading.Demotic has had too much signs for it.Trading products needed simple way of record& marking.That's why only consonants are on inscriptions from jars.They are product code=bar code of ancient merchants.
