We All Speak Greek, you just don't know it

Xenophon Zolotas, used only Greek words in the following English speech (about the economic conference held in October 2, 1959)…
Kyrie,
It is Zeus anathema on our epoch and the heresy of our economic method and policies that we should agonize the Skylla of nomismatic plethora and the Charybdis of economic anaemia.
It is not my idiosyncrasy to be ironic or sarcastic but my diagnosis would be that politicians are rather cryptoplethorists. Although they emphatically stigmatize nomismatic plethora, they energize it though their tactics and practices. Our policies should be based more on economic and less on political criteria. Our gnomon has to be a metron between economic strategic and philanthropic scopes.
In an epoch characterized by monopolies, oligopolies, monopolistic antagonism and polymorphous inelasticity, our policies have to be more orthological, but this should not be metamorphosed into plethorphobia , which is endemic among academic economists.
Nomismatic symmetry should not antagonize economic acme. A greater harmonization between the practices of the economic and nomismatic archons is basic.
Parallel to this we have to synchronize and harmonize more and more our economic and nomismatic policies pan ethnically. These scopes are more practicable now, when the prognostics of the political and economic barometer are halcyonic.
The history of our didimus organization on this sphere has been didactic and their Gnostic practices will always be a tonic to the polyonymous and idiomorphous ethnical economies.

    That’s a great artile, but the first paragraph is not that valid. It reproduces an urban legend that circulates in Greece. Bill Gates never said such things about the Greek language, or at least you will never find an official source for this quote. After all the originator of the quote varies according to the reproduction of the legend. More importantly the “mathematical structure” is not a linguistic term. It’s just ethnocentric gibberish. Greek is not more “mathematical” than any other language.
