In Greek, how do you say...?
In English we use the word Sycophant to mean a Fawner, Suck-up, Flatterer, Groveler and the likes. The origins of this word is Greek – Συκοφάντης (Sykofántis) and in fact means Informer, Snitch or Whistle Blower.
So, what is the word the Greeks (modern) use for a Fawner, Suck-up, Flatterer or Groveler?
How do I say “You are being sycophantic”? and “You are a sycophant”?
Any help would be much appreciated.
