The Lonely Planet Greek Phrasebook is a very nice phrasebook. It has a nice history of Greece and describes the cultural norms. I have tried to speak Greek a little bit. For example “thank you” is efcharisto. I also tried using some Greek last night for our cab ride home. “Right” is dheksios. Depending on the gender, it can also be dheksia or dheksio. “Straight” is isia. “Left” was the most interesting. According to the Lonely Planet Greek Phrasebook, “Left” is dheksia. I thought this was a bit odd at the time, and every Greek person I have mentioned this too thinks it is hilarious. “Left” is actually aristerA. I’m not sure if I like this phrasebook anymore.
