I promised last night I'd have my questions for you. ;)

1. Are Greeks really like that, or is it over exaggerated in MBFGW?

2. What is sponicopita? (sp?)

3. What does yasas mean? Or is it streyasas?

4. What does umpah mean? You hear it a lot in the movie....

5. How's my driving? :D

6. Where do you fit in, in the movie? ;)

Hi Celli http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Ummm... Ok...

1) Greek people look like that although there are some exaggerated parts in the movie...

2) I guess you mean "spanakopita" :D which means spinach pie...

3) It's "yasas" and it means "Hello" when you see someone or "Bye" when you leave...

4) umpah?? :confused: I think it's something like "sponicopita" which you didn't hear well?? :confused:

5) :D

6) In exaggeration http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I don't know how else to explain it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif That's just what the noise sounds like when they make it in the movie. lol http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

It's a pastry? Wow, I always thought it was something like pita bread. :D lol I was way off on that one. ;)

Another question! :D (see what you get for me watching that movie? ;) )

Is it really considered good luck (and to keep the devil away) to spit on someone?

ELEN

Well Celli... ummmm... if it's "whopa" then it means what it have been left out from a cigarette (snipe-slang). Did they smoke when you heard this word??

You know, I can't recall the word you ask because it's my mother tongue and when I saw the movie it didn't make any difference for me. You know what I mean, right???

Celli

The language has changed from when you were first learning it you mean?

The word they were using, was coming normally after a toast. If that makes any difference.

Celli, You are determined to figure this out ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

ELEN
27-07-03, 18:08
:D LOL, no... I mean that as Greek is my mother tongue, the words didn't surprise me at all. That's why I can't understand what you mean, all the words were natural to me, didn't make any difference...

Is it "opa"??

Celli
27-07-03, 18:13
lol Yes Bella, I'm determined! :D

Well, let's try 'opa' this time. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif What does that mean? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

(I should just stop. lol The words I'm screwing up, aren't even close to what I'm trying to get at! AHH! Chickenfingers is getting worse! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif )

:D

Umm... There is no translation for that. It nearly means "Stop" or "Wait a minute" or "What happened now?" depending on the situation...
