Our Welsh word for "red" is related to Greek: coch = κόκκινος. That's so cool!

Αυτός διαβάζει το μικρό κόκκινο βιβλίο. Αυτός είναι κομμουνιστής.

In algebraic geometry there is "The Red Book of Varieties and Schemes" by Mumford. Which actually isn't red, though...

Where the word bibliography came from (probably). Did you know that the modern day 'b' came from the greek 'β'. But that's a 'v'! V actually is a descendant of 'υ'.

All these differnt s-letters!! I will never ever learn to write them right! :)

Just two small letters:

ς at the end of a word

σ everywhere else

The capital letter is Σ in all cases.

You can do it!
