    I don't mind.

    Star Wars = Star Wars

    etc.

    Anyway, I think you lot are better than me, you can talk English when you're not British or American or Aussie. I struggle enough with French and stuff.

    More Greek:

    Viologia= the science of/about life. And don't tell me you don't know the english word ;)

    Lakonikos=s'one who uses few words to express his/hers opinion. From the word Lakonas=s'one from Sparta. The ancient Spartans were legendary for not using toom any words to express smth. There is a story, about two Spartans carrying a sack sayingIt needs wheat. Yet, they could just point the empty sack and say Wheat, since it was obvious the sack was empty.


    Konstantinoupoli=Constantinople. A city named after a general with the same name as me ( :D ). Also known as Poli. The Byzantines used to say Eis tin Polin i.e. to the city. Hence the Turkish Istanbul.

    My ancient Greek lessons were years ago, but I thought angelos was indeed spelled with two gammas (aggelos), but pronounced 'angelos' even in ancient Greek ?

    I just checked in a few books. The correct spelling would be: anggellos. Dictionary says there is also a formaggellos, without 'n', but it means the same.
