    Default Any Greek word for "bouzouki-player" that is not a compound word?

    Is there a SINGLE word in Greek (not a "compound") for "bouzouki-player"?

    Like "guitarist" (non-compound) in English = "guitar-player" (compound) = "one who plays the guitar".

    Thanks, Duffy.

    Next question:

    How do you say "bar-tab" in Greek? Is it not "μπαρ-καρτέλα"? (In English, "bar-tab" means the record of the drinks you will be charged for at the bar.)

    We have no bars like US's and we do not drink every Friday until we get stoned, so there is no similar term for the drink. But in any case when this is done, then we say: (Σερί = "streak" / "break" / "run", as in billiard).

    thereby providing another reason to agree with Amethystos that you have never been a member of the diplomatic corps!!!

    But just to make sure I understand you, the word
    Σερί means the record of the charges that you have accumulated, correct?

    Thanks Duffy.

    Also, please note that IF and WHEN you have the time, energy, and interest, I have "queued up" another song for translation:

    If you don't feel like doing translations this often, please don't be annoyed.
