Liam, I would guess Στάμος as well, but sometimes a transliteration is a little surprising when looking at the original -- know what I mean?

Comment by Liam Strain on April 15, 2017 at 12:51pm

David - I would guess something like: 
Στάμος

Comment by David R. on April 15, 2017 at 12:07pm

How do you write "Stamos" (like in John Stamos) in Greek?  I have been going crazy trying to find this online.  Thank youl

Good grief.  Impressive paranoia.  The military trains some soldiers in Arabic ... I think you'll survive a foreign language Google search.

Comment by David R. on August 9, 2015 at 5:16pm

I would enjoy learning the specifics of how the Arabic language works, but I'm afraid to Google it or anything because it would probably put me on some "list" somewhere nowadays.

This is a loooong shot, I know, but is anyone here interested in isolating/analytic languages, especially those of China and Southeast Asia? Haha.

B'H

I have just published a book that I think would be interesting for people who like short stories, the west, learning about other cultures, Jewish holidays and life and the way it should have been.

 

I would so love for some guys from this exclusive club to read it and share what you think with me.  It would help me a lot.

You can get it here

http://www.amazon.com/The-Light-Giver-Adventures-Hasidic/dp/0615611...

Here is what others have said about it:

 

 "What fun it is to follow Reb Bahir's rabbi-hero on his journey through the Wild West and the Jewish calendar. A wonderful read, it sneaks in solid teaching wrapped in a rollicking tale." — Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement

 

"Jewish mystical stories were born at the strange, hazy crossroads between uncommon wisdom and common sense. The Light Giver hearkens back to the time when rabbis didn't lecture from podiums and write blog posts from iPads, but went on adventures into the wild, befriending runaway slaves and dodging Injun arrows, throwing themselves into the wide world because G-d created it all. Written in the fine tradition of Reb Shmuel Munkes and The Frisco Kid, the stories in this book are funny, sad, innocent and world-weary, and truly, truly wise." --- Matthue Roth, author of Yom Kippur A Go-Go: A Memoir "At once funny, touching, and profound,

 

The Light Giver takes us on a journey through the Jewish calendar, the Jewish spirit and into the Jewish soul. Rabbi Davis is by no means conventional, and this book is unlike any other. Within it there are sparks of Divinity waiting for us to unearth. This book is a delight to read and learn from." --- Mayim Bialik, actress and author of Beyond the Sling

 

Many thanks

A friend sent me the following link.  I thought you might enjoy it as much as I did.

Greetings Everyone, 

As a student of linguistics and foreign language, I'm happy to have found this group. It looks like there is a lot of great content in the discussion forums.  Hopefully I can contribute some stuff now and then as well.

Cheers!
