"strose to stoma sou"
thanks a lot / Paula
Re: useful words or phrases in greek?
Well, the first sentence " Erheste ligo parakalo" actually it is said when somebody tells you " Could you follow me please" ?
The second one " Strose to stoma sou" I believe it is wrong. It is "Strose to stroma sou" which means " Set your bed.
The word stoma is mouth, so it cannot be this. It is a spelling mistake I am sure.
