Dear Yiorgo,

Thank you so much for sending these superb links. Watching them, though, 
I could not help but notice a disparity in the linguistic ease among the 
people interviewed. It seems that the immigrants to European countries 
and Australia speak Greek without the inflection that is detectable 
among the US-based Greeks who appear on the program, even when the time 
of emigration is the same (the decade of the '60s). Is this only my 
impression or do others on the list share it? And if it is a correct 
assessment is there any sociolinguistic research that has been done on 
this question?
