Descriptions. Skeuomorph. A skeuomorph (/ˈskjuːəˌmɔːrf, ˈskjuːoʊ-/[1][2]) is a derivative object that retains ornamental design cues from structures that were necessary in the original.[3] Examples include pottery embellished with imitation rivets reminiscent of similar pots made of metal[4] and a software calendar that imitates the appearance of binding on a paper desk calendar.[5] Arguments in favour of skeuomorphism include that it makes devices easier to use for people familiar with the older devices that are imitated.

Skeuomorph

Arguments against include that it takes up more screen space on digital devices, and may be more complex and more difficult to learn than a straightforward interface without it. More recently there has been a move away from skeuomorphism, including at Apple Inc, whose operating system under the leadership of Steve Jobs formerly championed the approach.

Overview of Greek Grammar

First, a few notes about large-scale Modern Greek syntax: An affirmative sentence in Greek follows the SVO pattern (Subject, Verb, Object), just like in English. However, the SVO structure is considerably more relaxed in Greek than in English. Greek has richer morphology than English, so it is usually quite clear which noun denotes the subject and which one the object, because of their morphological endings (subjects have nominative case endings, objects have accusative case endings, possessors have genitive case endings), and of the articles that precede them (again, articles change according to case).

That is not to say one can jumble subjects, verbs, and objects in Greek, and still come up with a valid sentence. In Ancient Greek, particularly in Classic, the pattern SOV was more common than SVO.
