LPENOR's visitors offen need to know the Greek word for an English one, as beauty, freedom, etc., which is the reason of this page. A word in English (left column) is translated in Ancient and Modern Greek at the right columns. Words can have many meanings or/and nuances. If you need such information, you can use the interpretation community, because this page offers only the most common meanings. You may also ask for a Greek word or phrase that is not included in this list. If you don't have already you can download Greek polytonic fonts (if you see garbage instead of the accented characters). Note also that the list is not sorted; you have to use your browser's search tool if you need to find a specific word.
