Kniga, you speak Greek??? Good training, sir

kniga

Jet,

All languages are good training and Greek is the other bookend of English, Latin being the first one. I just wish I had studied Greek at the same time I did Latin (I was 11 at the time) instead of when I was in my 40s.

I studied Greek for 5 minutes in a suburban US diner. That is why my vocabulary is limited to malaka, skata and spanakopita ;) ;) :)

for those who still think that malaka has smth to do with milk:

milk is "gala"in Greek, so the word "galaxy"perhaps has more to do with milk than malaka:agree:

"Galaksias kuklos" is actually the term for the Milky Way (literally, a ring of milk).

I just realised that one of the funiest jokes and surreal paradoxes (both moulded in to one) of expat.ru is the fact that I am the moderator of this folder!!

LOL!!

Kniga - I hereby swear you in as my deputy in this realm. You shall be known as the "linguistic-kid"!;)

DPG,

Why, good morning! You finally awoke to the fact that these sneaky multilingual participants were doing all this stuff behind your back, eh? :-)

DPG
06-07-2004, 15:27
Well, I know that the Greek stuff wasn't exactly cricket and will do something about that.

I will have to rely on you (and honest others) to inform me if something is amiss in here...start roaming the plains, sherriff's badge in hand my man!!

kniga

DPG,

How'd I get deputized?

DPG
06-07-2004, 23:58
Well, you're from Texas ain't ya?!:D

The fact that you speak more languages than a computer translation algorithm is also useful in our fight against the linguistic cowboys!;)

I was actually going to use that as a subject line in a PM to someone about this very thread! :-)

(Except what they posted happened by virtue of having once been a schoolboy, to be the only Greek words excluding food and drink that I know!!).

Right, time for tea with Gala and biscuits!!;)

gala...well done. see, it's easy to learn!

There are so many words in English that originate from Greek, and I am not talking about terms in medicine and philosophy. but just smthing like: taxi, lamp, etc ;)

For instance - scat comes from skata (as does scatology).
