- In the lawyer's office where my brother works during breaks from school, a few of the people use a Greek sentence that sounds like /dimE 'njazi E'mEna/ (i don't remember how it's spelled) like that. It means "what do i care?" Another Greek sentence he learned means "i'm hungry" but it sounds amusingly similar to the English sentence "pee now". -Stephen (Steg) "aru."
