> But at this time did the greek speak blacki or vlahi? Because then there the language of turks seems to have more fonological restrictions. "vl" and "bl" should be too verya dificult to pronounce..
Greek had [vl-] at the time. <b> ("beta" Mod.Gk. [vita]) has been pronounced [v] ever since the early Byzantine period. The word <blakHoi> has _always_ been pronounced [vlaxi].
