Please note: this article is in Greek. Interlingual influences and their exploitation in the teaching of Modern Greek to English speakers: Proposal for an online dictionary: English and Greek share a large number of common words with significant similarities both in the written form and in pronunciation. This paper begins with proposing a complete terminology, which covers the various categories of those words. It continues reviewing the related literature, which suggests that the similarities can be particularly helpful in the teaching of Modern Greek to English speakers. Since course books available today do not exploit this benefit systematically and considering the teachers’ difficulties in sourcing the common words, we propose an online dictionary. The dictionary includes words that demonstrate a strong degree of similarity. Entries are selected with students from 5 to 18 years of age in mind, are divided into thematic categories and graded levels of difficulty. The option of finding entries using a variety of criteria is also provided.
