A catalogue of new words I learn in Greek and English. This is the public blog of Joanna Eleftheriou (Ιωάννα Ελευθερίου). I welcome comments that help refine my understanding of these words' nuances and usage. Thanks!
Kle -- psee -- dra... Αnd since I was wondering what the KLEPTo root was doing in the word for hourglass, I looked it up and it's KLEP + YDRO, WATER STEALER!!!Clearly the ancients used water rather than sand, and it seemed to be stealing it!!1
