Well, the difference is that no one uses "Ψεύδομαι" anymore. We all just say "σου λέω ψέματα" or "μου λες ψέματα", for example.

  • Έχουν την ίδια σημασία, αλλά το λέω ψέματα χρησιμοποιείται πιο συχνά/ They have the same meaning, but λέω ψέματα is used more frequently.
  • Τα ρήματα ψεύδομαι και ψευδολογώ είναι πιο επίσημα/ The verbs ψεύδομαι and ψευδολογώ are more formal.

I hope this helps. :-)

Ψεύδομαι is a "katharevousa" word. Formal, very formal, it is used sometimes if you want to be very emphatic and formal in the same time. In debates, sometimes.
