#148987 - 10/17/05 08:08 AM Lipo versus Lipos - from Lipogram October 17, 2005
Does anyone know the relationship between "lipo" (from lipogram) meaning without and "lipos" for fat? Both are apparently Greek.

Two different words: to lipos 'animal fat' and lipogrammatos 'lacking a letter' from leipo 'to leave, quit; drop something'._________________________
