The traditional system, now called the polytonic orthography or polytonic system , is still used internationally for the writing of Ancient Greek. Ancient Greek texts often used scriptio continua 'continuous writing' , which means that ancient authors and scribes would write word after word with no spaces or punctuation between words to differentiate or mark boundaries. Greek has occasionally been written in the Latin script , especially in areas under Venetian rule or by Greek Catholics.
Additionally the term Greeklish is often used when the Greek language is written in a Latin script in online communications. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
