Good point thank you for adding that.

There is also the word "σεληνοφώς". I made a silly typo and wrote it as "σελινοφώς". Understandably my offering was rejected. However, spelled correctly, it is a very poetic word and a good one !

The word would not have been rejected for such a small error. It is found in the incubator. So, it should have been accepted. Which section of the course was it found in? Sometimes Strengthen skills or other areas which are created by the duobod do not pick up our edits. It would help us if we knew. Many thanks.

Γεια σας ! I think it was in a Test (Test out 17 lessons) but it belongs to Nature unit I think. Not 100 % sure. Ευχαριστώ πολύ.

Hi, you may have noticed I changed my original post since I searched nature also and found it. Yes, I was afraid it might be in a Test Out section. We report these whenever we come across them but sometimes they do not come through quickly. Thanks again.

Παρακαλώ. :)

(I tend to think I am fluent in Greek but my spelling is atrocious.)
