Greek, originally the second language of the Roman Empire, has a long history and is the basis for the further development of alphabets and language structures in Europe.
The Greek alphabet, which was at first written right-to-left, was itself a descendant of the Phoenician language.
Greek is a highly inflected language with a very wide vocabulary - and of course the alphabet is relatively limited in use now to the Greek language itself.

 Homeric Singing - An Approach to the Original Performance
The Greek aoidoi sang in unison with the accompaniment of the four-stringed phorminx, which implicates the use of only four notes for the melody, too.
Ancient Greek had a pitch accent, that is, the accent was expressed by means of pitch, not of stress.
Thus, early Greek hexameter poetry is likely to have been sung to a fixed set of four notes, the melody governed by word accent and sentence intonation.

 Ancient Greek Language and Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In the preface to his James Joyce's Ulysses, Stuart Gilbert wrote "I had begun by reading the Odyssey and though at first I found my knowledge of the Early Ionic sadly rusty after may years' obsolescence, facility came with progress, and, with it, a renewed, and enhanced, pleasure in the greatest of all epics.
Indeed the Odyssey is quite easy reading; a smattering of Greek (seconded by a good dictionary and W. Merry's notes) suffices.
No other work of literary art in any language is equally refreshing and rewarding, and if I can persuade any of the readers of Ulysses to follow up with a reading of the Odyssey in the original--translations are but reflections in a tarnished mirror--I shall have done them a good turn"

 Ancient Scripts: Linear B
It seems that ancient accounting records composed a majority of the clay tablets on which Linear B appears because a lot of them are lists of materials and goods.
In fact, it is likely that Linear A was used to write the pre-Greek language of Crete, and the incoming Greeks adopted this writing system for their own use, but without changing how the system fundamentally works.
In the case of a syllable with a initial consonant cluster, individual consonants in the cluster are written by a CV sign whose vowel matches the vowel of the syllable.
