Glad you liked it! I looked for the diminutive (little one) of αλγια. But all I could find was the ending "-ion" and I didn't know how to fit it on "algia", would it be algion (αλγιον)?

All right, then, we'll leave it as is, "gluconostimalgia".

Welcome to the Agora, portokalos ! I must confess, even though doing so gives rise to a certain degree of *glukonostimalgia, that the word «*nostos» doesn't remind me of very much at all. Where did you happen upon it ?...

The word is difficult. Full of negative sentiments. Especially to the people who live out of their country. I just with apo wanted to give a more optimistic note to that word. To remain their recollections sweet and the pain to be raised

this word is the term for the archetypal hero's 'return quest' as seen in the Odyssey. I had originally wondered about its relation to 'nostalgia' it seems to have spark a 'tasty' discussion

Thanks, badandy! (are you bad, andy or ba-dandy?)

i'm pretty sure it's bad andy, but who can be sure! Actually I was christened badandy after the Domino's Pizza mascot, and I needed an on-air disc jockey name. I'm not really that bad (except at Portuguese), but the name stuck.

What Swedes name 'pain Riche' is 'baguettes' to a Frenchman. Not very sweet or even tasty though, but far away from that plastic abomination of a bread imitation that the English dub "Mother's Pride".

That must be why this thread gives the impression of starting rather abruptly ! Is there a page missing, in which the origin of «nostalgia» was discussed ?...
