Learn Greek - word for WOOD


OK - Time for another lesson in the world's least intensive Greek course.

Today - it's the word for wood - xylos.

In small Greek letters this is ξyloς.

In capitals: ΞYLOΣ

The picture above is a sign for a ΞYΛOYPΓEION - which is xylourgeion or wood-work shop. There's quite a few of these places on Kalymnos, churning out doors and windows and shelf units and so on.


Xylos is pretty easy to remember as being the word for wood because xylophones are made out of wood.



See?

Easy!
