There are several words meaning beautiful. My favorite is Kalos (ÎºÎ±Î»ÏÏ). (Just because,) Beautiful = Youthful, the upright translation of "Beautiful" is ÎÎ…¦ÎÎÎÎ£ (pronounced: Aephibos) (= the one being in his premium adult age / being in its youth).
Î²Î±Ïá½·Î»ÎµÎ¹Î± (basileia) is the most common word in the ancient literature.
There isn't a(n ancient) Greek word for holiday because the concept wasnt there. If I am not mistaken it started in Renaissance. In modern Greek its Î´Î¹Î±ÎºÎ¿ÏÎ…Ï (diakopes) from the word (n.) Î´Î¹Î±ÎºÎ¿ÏÎ® (diakopi) meaning to stop. It means (among others) to stop what you are doing and do something else. Î´Î¹Î±-ÎºÎ¿ÏÎ· Î´Î¹Î± (dia- to divide, usually in half) and ÎºÎ¿ÏÎ· (kopi, meaning cut , also ÏÎ¿Î¼Î® (tomi) you can find it in atom, tomography etc). Too much information.
haimodipsos (adj, ancient greek) = bloodthirsty, to haimodipsos = The bloodthirsty one
tis estin houtos pios ine aftos(modern) tis estin haute tis estin anir(man)tis estin gini(woman) Pios einai (pee-OHS EE-nay) in Modern Greek
Poseidon was.. Poseidon was the greek god of the seas.
á¼ÏÏÎ»Î»Ï Î¼Î¹ or á¼ÏÎ¿Î»Î»ÏÏ
ÎºÎµÏÎ±Ï Î½ÏÏ (keravnos).
It is the same as how we say it in English: Jack. It is not spelt with a capital though, unless it is on it's own. Use a capital after a - or another word. Only use a capital …if there is a space before it. :) :D ;) ;D
I don't believe it's any different than modern Greek. In modern Greek eight is Î¿ÏÏÏ (ohto "o" like e.g. "ordinary", h like "harmony" and "to" like "total"). I'm …not sure how else to explain the pronunciation for you. Hope that helps.
