: That book sounds really interesting. Thank you! Is it an easy one to get a hold of?
Yes, Lena, the book seems to be still available (see the link at the bottom). It contains about 10.000 Greek words of foreign origin with a short description of their meaning and the information from which language they are coming (all written in Greek).
And I forgot to mention for Ellen the list with examples of words with turkish origin at the end of the book, for example:
giaourti, keftes, loukoumi, mezes, mpaklavas, ntolmas, xalvas, kazani, kapaki, kouvas, flitzani, papoutsi, tsepi, kafasi, tavani, tzaki, tzami, paras, giasemi, karpouzi, menekses, manavis, mparouti, ntoufeki, axti, kaiki, kefi, tenekes etc.etc.
