I’d like the record to show that the Allemannic Wikipedia (as in the dialects of Switzerland, Southwest Germany, Western Austria) have an article on Tsakonian with stuff not seen elsewhere online, including some photos of Tsakonian greetings, and a list of villages with their Tsakonian names. In fact, they’re using a source I don’t happen to have (Vagenas’ history of Tsakonia). [EDIT: Strike that, I do have it.] Their article on Greek ain’t bad either.

Wikipedia’s full of surprises like that. The Serbian article on the Greek “political” verseform has a much better grasp of the verseform’s Byzantine practice than the English or Greek article.
