i thought Latin was bad about this, but at least i learned “salve” on the first day. i’ve been in Greek for a week and don’t know how to say “hello,” although i do know how to say “i steal” and “i offer sacrifice”
I’ve had Latin for 6 years and Greek for 5 by now, and I’ve never been told how to say hello or goodbye.. Although, I do know 25 ways to explain in what horrible way someone was killed. Welcome to Classics.
