28th March: GEOGRAPHY Γεωγραφία

Posted Monday March 28, 2016 by Despina K

Welcome to Day 28 of Speak Greek in March:


Geography (from Greek γεωγραφία, geographia, literally “earth description”) is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth. A literal translation would be “to describe or picture or write about the earth”. The first person to use the word “geography” was Eratosthenes (276–194 BC). (Source: Wikipedia)


Η Γεωγραφία είναι ένα πεδίο της επιστήμης αφιερωμένο στη μελέτη και περιγραφή των εδαφών, των χαρακτηριστικών, των κατοίκων και των φαινομένων της Γης.
