ενδελέχεια < αρχαία ελληνική (ἐνδελέχεια) < αρχαία ελληνική ἐνδελεχής

[]Open book 01.svg Ουσιαστικό

ενδελέχεια θηλυκό
  1. η συνέχεια, η διάρκεια
  2. η συνεχής και αδιάλειπτη φροντίδα ή επιμέλεια

en-del-ECH-ee-uh: long-term-ness, etymology is from en- and a unit of distant measure in Ancient Greece, the dolichos, which I had never heard of before looking up this word, which has been in my head a while... it's the name of a band, and I bet they just chose it cuz it's a super-cool sounding word.
