Thread Name: BS: How do you define it?
Subject: RE: BS: How do you define it?
Purple, the glib answer is that if you're looking for a single word, grá, as its English counterpart, can suffice as a catch-all term for all four of the Greek names.
The more in-depth answer is that when you use Irish to describe different gradations of feeling for someone, you get VERY heavily into idiomatic expressions, as opposed to single words.
If you're interested I'll send you a link. ;)
