One of my followers, Mr. M, asked me to write about the word oikos. Oikos is the Greek word for house. My mother mentioned that this is also the name of a company that makes Greek yogurt. The people who named the company probably wanted to persuade buyers that their product tasted homemade. What do you all think?
I am always on the lookout for new and interesting words, so if any of you come across any cool words, comment and let me know!
Learn something new everytime! Thank you Tara!!
The word “economy” comes from oikos–I guess it’s the management of one’s house.
The etymology of “school” is very interesting. Why don’t you try that one?
Thank you for your comment and the suggestion!
Yes, I think that’s absolutely correct! I’d also like to point out that this word is also seen in English “economy” (< Greek oiko-nomia) and "vicinity" (< Latin vicinitas)
Thank you for taking the time to respond and for the information!
Tara, I am always learning from you. Thanks.
Try the root ergon.
