Arete, how is that pronounced anyway? Ah reet? Ah ret? Ah reh tay?
Arete in a Flemish [Dutch speaking part of Belgium] dialect actually means: "your ass" when pronounced A-ray-teh
Is Nova a bad name for a car?
Because in Spanish, it means "no go."
Reet = ass
A = (not a word in Dutch)
Don't know what kind of twisted dialect you speak, NZL, but in Dutch, Arete means nothing.
A is "Kempisch" dialect for "Uw" [=your]
OOC- I think Flemish part of Belgium and Netherlands should unite, and toss the poor Wallonians where they belong, in France.
/Offtopic I don't think that the Flemish and the Dutch would want such a union. In the past, Flanders revolted against Dutch superiority.
Btw, I do have the book "De leeuw van Vlaanderen" in my possession .
It is pronounced Ah-Reet
Aristotle's philosophy involves astate of Ideal, called Arete.
However I like Kwarrior's first suggestion, the Caeneads.
I don't think the old greeks pronounced Arete the english way. I think it should be pronounced as Ah-Reet-eh
Ah-Reh-Teh I pronounce it, sounds classic and pure.
If Badhron, joncnunn and w00ter all change votes from Arethans to Aretans, Aretans would have more than 50 %, does that sound good?
That would sound good, but one thing...
We can't change our vote.
There is a new poll, just make your choice there.
