Learn the Lingo (If it’s Greek to You)

Our books contain the conscious decision of including a tiny bit of Greek, you know, for flavour. Just like olive oil.

Ok! Ok, we know. Read the list.

Ok! Ok, we know. Read the list.

You can probably google it yourself but I took the liberty of listing our swear words, because then I can point people to the “Swear Word Thesaurus®”. Who else gets to do that, huh?

  • Skata. Means “shit”. You probably already guessed it by the strategic use of the word in various shit-involving expressions, like “It all went to skata”.
  • Vlakas. Means “stupid”, “idiot”. For reasons that don’t exist in English, depending on the use the “s” is omitted and you might see it as vlaka.
  • Yasou. Not a curse, quite the opposite. It means “hello”, and it literally means “To your health”.
  • Ya. An abbreviation of the above Yasou.
  • Hybris. Transliterated spelling of hubris.
  • Malaka. It’s probably the only word I don’t need to list here, but I will do so for SEO keyword relevancy. It means “asshole” (not literally, there is another word for that).
  • Gamoto. Means “Fuck!” with the exclamation.
  • Timi. Not a swear word. Means “honor”.
  • Kala. Means “fine“, “well“.
  • Nai. Means “yes”.
  • Ohi. Means “no“.
  • Kalimera. Means “goodmorning”.
  • Kalinixta. Means “goodnight”.
  • Poutana. Means “whore”.
  • Apodeixis. Means scientific/mathematical proof.
  • Aderfi. Means “sister”.
  • Cochleus. Another version of cochlea.
  • Daskala. Means “teacher”.

    I wish you had more books available! I read LOTS OF BOOKS! Unfortunately, I must limit my expenses severely, so I can’t buy everything I want (darn!). I prefer urban fantasy and romantic fantasy, but some sci fi is good.

What do you think Mythographer?
