Kalispera, SparroWinter! Me lene Xamonster. (Pardon the fragmented modern Greek, but don't you just hate transliterating Greek characters?)

I think I only understood that in context. *laughs* It's been years since I studied any form of Greek, realy, and the most I remember from that class is how to say, "Life is hard" and "The ox is beautiful." (Long story on that last one. :p) I really need to dig out my textbook and go through it again. That class was a lot of fun.

I said, "Good afternoon, SparroWinter! My name is Xamonster." Our thing was always "I throw the king into the sea." Funny in both Latin and Greek ... but I digress.

Heh heh. It's always funny to find random abscure phrases in other languages. During my first year of French, tyhe big thing with my friends and I was "sarcophage de sarasin" (buckwheat sarcophagus) Damned if I know how we came up with that one!

hey, Crimson, you speak modern greek as well?  Thas cool.  In our Greek and Latin classes we always had it in for Caesar, "Et Caesar Augustus Magnissimus... etcetc"

Has anyone seen Eddiie Izzard's "Dress to Kill" - with the act in "high school" French?  That's the best.  And completely what we learned in my language classes. 

...OMG, that just gave me a new swap idea the "butchered languages swap"...  I should post that  Grin

Oh god, that would be wonderful! I've had some spectacular mistranslations that I've both done and heard in my time.
