Hello friends. Χαίρετε.
My name is John Neos. I have an interest in etymology and i've created a blog entitled "English words of no Apparent Greek Origin" [http://ewonago.blogspot.com/]. There you can find the etymology of words like parliament, sincere, vow, library, mortality, stop, script, etc. All of them have a Greek etymon, a Greek root.
In each post, you can also find Greek words related to the etymon, so you can learn them easily.
Periodically, i'll also post a few words in this forum in order to help people learn Greek easily by using the cognates between English and Greek.
Send me your comments.
Best regards.

Hi Samantha, your friend perhaps over-estimates your knowledge of Greek! The phrase means: "My Goodness! I have such a fear!"
