τροτέζα ~ prostitute

γυναίκα που εκδίδεται στο δρόμο, πόρνηκαλντεριμιτζού

I heard the word on a radio show about Σοφία Βέμπο, who was in a theatrical production where she played a whore. This word is also in a Mitropanos song... but I never looked it up.

Its etymology is the French word trotteuse, which means "second hand."

  1. More accurately, "streetwalker" (from French trottoir = sidewalk).

    In French it also stands for a horse trained in a specific style.
