Good observations, thanks David. I was also thinking of our weather thread
, but also of the fact that if I use ancient greek conversationaly in this forum, modern words are bound to pop up.
In modern greek we do use κλῖμαξ as scale. Κλίμακα Ρίχτερ, for example. I wasn't aware that the ancients didn't use it that way. See, these are little traps I am bound to fall in
For forum, I'll stick to αγορά then.
Πολλ' οίδ' ἀλώπηξ, ἐχῖνος δέ έν, μέγα.
