Ioannis "Yianis" Vilaras (Greek: ? () ?; 1771-1823) was a Greek doctor, lyricist and writer who often discussed linguistic matters (see Greek language question) and maintained ties with many figures of the Modern Greek Enlightenment movement.
Vilaras was one of the first modern Greek poets and important figure of modern Greek literature. He was in favour of an extreme/radical version of Demotic Greek (people's language), mainly based on the phonetic orthography, without using historic orthography or tones.
His most famous work was the Romeiki glosa (? [sic]), written in Corfu in 1814, which was different from the mainstream ways of Greek writing.
Other works of him include Amartia and Gnothi Safton. In 1953, "Apanta of Vilaras" were published including erotic and lyric poems, myths and enigmas.
