Εἰ μὲν σφάλλεται,
διδάσκειν εὐμενῶς
καὶ τὸ παρορώμενον δεικνύναι.
εἰ δὲ ἀδυνατεῖς,
σεαυτὸν αἰτιᾶσθαι ἢ μηδὲ σεαυτόν.

Clicero ([ˈklicɛɾɔ]), Hellenized as Κλίκαιρων, preferably in Coptic Ⲕⲗⲓⲕⲁⲓⲣⲱⲛ, is an imitation of the Latin cognomen Cicero by association with the regional Macedonian word кликер (kliker) which refers to the resourcefulness or acumen of whomever one is addressing. For example, one might remark "Му работе кликеро!" (Mu rabote klikero!, 'He, indeed, is resourceful!') when someone offers a clever solution to a problem, but is most often used ironically or humorously.

Curious calquesEdit

Werner Betz was a German linguist and medievalist. He developed a complex terminology for calques that will be used below, namely, more specifically for compound words, Lehnübersetzung (a "word-by-word" literal loan translation), Lehnübertragung (a loan rendition which has only one corresponding word), and Lehnschöpfung (a loan creation that lacks some nuances of the translated word).

Reconstructing the old Macedonian case systemEdit

Help me complete this declension table if any idea comes to mind. A placeholder word бог is used since it retains some case declensions in fossilized phrases other words do not.

Case Singular indefinite Singular definite unspecified Plural indefinite Plural definite unspecified
Nominative бог богот богови боговите
Genitive бога богатого[1] ? ?
Dative богу богутому[1] ? ?
Accusative бога богатого[1] ? ?
Vocative боже богови
Instrumental богум[2], божем (?)[3] ? ? ?
  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 The singular definite unspecified declensions in genitive, dative, and accusative are taken and applied from an example of archaic Macedonian dialects found here.
  2. ^ Attested in the expression збогум (zbogum, [go] with God).
  3. ^ Attested in the conjunction божем (božem, as if).

My protologismsEdit

  • oneiroctony – the destruction or dismissal of a dream, idea, or project



τὸν φρονεῖν βροτοὺς ὁδώσαντα,

δαιμόνων δέ που χάρις βίαιος
σέλμα σεμνὸν ἡμένων.
