Description

Τὸ βιβλίο ποὺ ἔχετε στὰ χέρια σας εἶναι γραμμένο μὲ βάση τὰ δεδομένα τοῦ σύγχρονου ἀναγνώστη σύντομο (μόλις 101 λήμματα), εὔληπτο (τὰ βασικὰ μόνο στοιχεῖα τῆς ἐτυμολογικῆς διαδρομῆς τῆς κάθε λέξης) καὶ δίγλωσσο (στὰ ελληνικὰ καὶ στὰ ἀγγλικά). Ἔτσι, μπορεῖ νὰ βοηθήσῃ στὸ μὲν γλωσσικὸ ἐπίπεδο καὶ αὐτὸν ποὺ ξέρει ἑλληνικὰ νὰ βελτιώσῃ τὸ ἐπίπεδο τῶν ἀγγλικῶν του, ἀλλὰ καὶ τὸ ἀντίστροφο, αὐτὸν δηλαδὴ ποὺ ξέρει καλὰ ἀγγλικὰ εἴτε νὰ βελτιώσῃ τὰ ἑλληνικά του (ἂν τὰ ἔχει ξεχάσει) εἴτε νὰ ἀρχίσῃ νὰ μαθαίνῃ τὰ ἑλληνικά, στὸ δὲ ἐτυμολογικὸ ἐπίπεδο, νὰ εἰσαγάγῃ τὸν ἀναγνώστη μὲ ἤπιο καὶ εὐχάριστο τρόπο στὸν θαυμαστὸ κόσμο τῆς ἐτυμολογίας.

The book you hold in your hands is written according to modern readers' profile: it is brief (it contains no more than 101 lemmata), intuitive (only the basic elements of every word's etymological evolution are given), and bilingual (it is written in Greek and English). Thus, regarding language, it can help someone who speaks Greek to improve their English level, as well as vice versa, that is, it can help someone who speaks English either to improve their Greek level (in case they have forgotten Greek) or to start learning it. As for etymology, it can introduce readers to its marvelous world in a mild and pleasant way.

Review quote

"An admittedly useful book which was composed above and beyond the call of philological duty to showcase the broadly unknown journey of many Greek words to the already globalised English language".

Ioannis Kazantzidis, Ancient and Modern Greek Language Teacher, Thessaloniki, Greece

"I surprisingly observed the connection between the English and the Greek language and the way the latter affected Latin languages in general. A book that will make many Greeks proud!"

Parthena Daniilidou, Marketing and Accounting Studies, Kastoria, Greece

"Greek in its diachrony! A wonderful journey to the early days of the words and their deepest meanings!"

Thanos Tassios, Mediterranean Studies (specialisation in International Relations), Serres, Greece
