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!
I don't remember the context in which I read this, except that I was teaching my sixth grader. The real question is why is this compounded with the word for island (χερσόνησος) to produce the word for peninsula??
