Katharevousa (Greek Καθαρεύουσα;, IPA /kaθaˈɾɛvuˌsa/) is a form of the Greek language, created during the early 19th century by Adamantios Korais (1748-1833).
Katharevousa actually contained archaicised forms of modern words, purged of "non-Greek" vocabulary from other European languages and Turkish and a (simplified) archaic grammar.
In later years, Katharevousa was used only for official and formal purposes (such as politics, letters, official documents, and newscasting) while Dhimotiki, (δημοτική;) 'demotic' or popular Greek, was the daily language.
