New English Word Student Challenge!!!

On the occasion of celebrating the European Languages Day 2021, the students of the three classes of Model Senior-High School of Patras in Greece were involved by our English Teacher, Ms Maria Marisa Christopoulou in a language challenge:

we «invented» our own new English words,

hoping that one day, some of them at least, if not all,

will be a part of our everyday vocabulary  and  officially be included in the English Dictionnary!!!

European Day of Languages 2021: 20 years celebrating linguistic and cultural diversity

Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans are represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states and all are encouraged to discover more languages at any age, as part of or alongside their studies. This stems from the Council of Europe’s conviction that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent. Therefore, the Council of Europe, in Strasbourg, promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.  At the Council of Europe’s initiative, the European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September – together with the European Commission.

To celabrate European Languages Day, apart from visiting the relevant portal, doing various quizzes and activities and participating in the «logo for T-shirt» contest, this year we participated in an unusual and quite interesting language CHALLENGE!

We invented new words (neologisms/coinages) in English and we have been trying to «advertise/promote» them among our friends and through Social Media, aiming at making them popular and hoping that one day they might be included in the Dictionary!!!

War

By Katerina Balda (A Class)

 ΕΡΓΑΣΙΑ ΑΓΓΛΙΚΩΝ

War is a state of armed conflict between states or societies. It is generally characterized by extreme aggression, destruction, and mortality, using regular or irregular military forces. An absence of war is usually called «peace«. Warfare refers to the common activities and characteristics of types of war, or of wars in general.Total war is warfare that is not restricted to purely legitimate military targets, and can result in massive civilian or other non-combatant suffering and casualties.

 

The English word war derives from the late Old English (circa.1050) words wyrre and werre, from Old French werre (also guerre as in modern French), in turn from the Frankish *werra, ultimately deriving from the Proto-Germanic *werzō “mixture, confusion’. The word is related to the Old Saxon werran, Old High German werran, and the German verwirren, meaning “to confuse”, “to perplex”, and “to bring into confusion”. In German, the equivalent is Krieg (from Proto-Germanic *krīganą “to strive, be stubborn’); the Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian term for «war» is guerra, derived like the Old French term from the Germanic word.
