Kάθε χρόνο λέω πως θα περάσω ένα υπέροχο καλοκαίρι με θάλασσα,βόλτες,αγόρια,ψώνια κλπ. Τώρα το πως καταλήγω κάθε φορά να έχω παρακολουθήσει περισσότερες online σειρές απο ότι μπορεί να αντέξει ενας ανθρώπινος οργανισμός ενας Θεός ξέρει

This is sick… An old man crying out of a bank in Thessaloniki, Greece. Unable to control himself, he collapses. A policeman and the bank chief are helping him to stand on his feet…. I am so ashamed of my country. This is not how I plan my future to be. Give justice to people. Stop caring only about yourselfs. Be Greek for one time, for the very first time in your lifes. PS Where is European Union’s care about their allies, us, Greeks(;) that’s how you show you care ? By blackmailing us? Shame on you. This is what you’ve done… That’s enough!

Why sit/sat and not sit/sitted?

Ever wonder why we have words like sing when the past tense is sang, but other words like talk that have a past tense with the suffix -ed? Here’s why…

A little background: a primary derivation makes words using roots (that aren’t really words themselves) and a secondary derivation makes words based off of words that already exist in a language. 

In proto Indo European (PIE), a lot of roots had the form of CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant), with the V being interchangeable with different vowels to create different words.

Ablaut refers to when vowels alternate inside the root. 
Example: The root l_g in Greek exists. Within the space, vowels can alternate to create different words, such as logos (n. word) and legein (v. to speak). If I’m correct, Arabic is another example of a language that has this feature. 

If you see things like sing (v.), sang (v. past tense), and song (n.), then it’s a native English word. Another example of this includes sit/sat and run/ran. 

These are all primary derivations. 

Secondary derivations don’t have the ablaut feature, so these verbs have their past tenses with the suffix -ed that we all know and love. 

*sed- (PIE) –> sit (present) & sat (past)
 setl (Old Eng. “seat”) –> settle (present) & settled (past)

Here, setl is a primary derivation, and settle is a secondary derivation. Because settle is a secondary derivation, its past tense is settled with the -ed suffix.

Voila, magic.
