Greek WOTD - ὑπέρογκος

ὑπέρογκος

Meaning "extremely large" or "rather difficult." Spotted in Lamentations 1:9:

ἀκαθαρσία αὐτῆς πρὸς ποδῶν αὐτῆς οὐκ ἐμνήσθη ἔσχατα αὐτῆς καὶ κατεβίβασεν ὑπέρογκα οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ παρακαλῶν αὐτήν ἰδέ κύριε τὴν ταπείνωσίν μου ὅτι ἐμεγαλύνθη ἐχθρός

Greek WOTD - στραγγαλόω

στραγγαλόω

Meaning what it sounds like, to choke or strangle. Found this in Ignatius' letter to the Trallians, 5.1.

This is the first in a possible series of Greek Word of the Day posts.
