Matthew Kelly wins award
« on: February 23, 2004, 11:03:18 AM »
I was quite surprised to hear this, thinking about the year that he's had with the allegations against him and everything else. He won the award for his role in Of Mice and Men. Take a look for yourself...

Sort of OT, but did you know that the US misspelling of paedophile, "pedophile" means in Greek: "Lover of feet"? ;)

KennyR again states half truth
"Sort of OT, but did you know that the US misspelling of paedophile, "pedophile" means in Greek: "Lover of feet"
----------------------
Seems we haven't misspelled it at all.

pedo-1 or ped-

 pref.

Soil: pedocal.


[From Greek pedon, soil, earth. See ped- in Indo-European Roots.]


pedo-2 or ped- or paed- or paedo-

 pref.

Child; children: pedodontics.

[Greek paido-, from pais, paid-, child. See pau- in Indo-European Roots.]

pedo

Pedi- \Ped"i-\, Pedo- \Ped"o-\ [See Foot.] Combining forms from L. pes, pedis, foot, as pedipalp, pedireme, pedometer.

This time, Fade, I have to say you're right. Make a note of this day.

Although, in saying that, trying to render Greek into English lettering is always going to vary on interpretation. Since I've never heard an ancient greek talk, the question that its "pedo" or "peedo" or "paedo" is not going to be answered.

It's both. Pædo-, pedo-, pädo-... Same thing, just transcribed from Greek differently.

The English language is to blame for any confusion, being the only (AFAIK) language that can pronounce the "E" of the Roman alphabet with an "I" sound (e.g. "legal"). :)

While I'm at it, bashing your language, someone asked how Euouae should be pronounced. Why, "euouae" of course! ;) No English diphtongs and mutations (i.e., not as in "ee-yu-ou-yu-ay-ee").
It's a word derived from Latin (shouldn't that be pronounced "laytin" BTW, if English were consistent?). You silly Engglish knigghts. ;)

Greek members, do you write p[æ|e]do- with an Epsilon or an Eta, or what?
