Definition: buttocks, greatly shaped buttocks
Aphrodite’s statute at Syracuse was named kallipygos, after the Greek adjective kallos meaning beauty and the noun pyge, meaning a rump, or- buttocks.
Why this word?
Oh wow- what a word!
The way the consonants roll of your tongue when you pronounce the word- make the definition so clear- it is about to get animalistic! I hear this word said with the main stress falling on the J sound, and the secondary stress on the “e-an” part, which would be pronounced through lips thin as a line… Yes, that’s how I hear it. That’s how I’d probably say it. Almost as if I was angry.
This is also a great word for each and every occasion in which you’d like to discuss a woman’s beautiful behind without her knowing it.
Until now, you had to whisper (or text message) while now you can just use this heart-warming word no one but you knows!
And regardless- what a lovely alternative!
