The name Tomísimo
 
Do you know what the word tomísimo means and where I got the idea for it? No cheating and looking it up in the dictionary. :)

Yep, you're getting really close ;D

Er, I'd presume "tomo" or something of the sort means tome, and then -ísimo just means a larger or bigger tome?

Er, yes, you'd be right. :) It's just tomo plus the -ísimo suffix.

so tomo means tome? I didn't even know tome was a word in English.

"'tomos'' in Greek means a big book or a book among the others of an encyclopedia. Does it has anything to do with this? Does Tomísimo has a Greek origin?

'Tome' is English, which entered our lexicon from the French language. They got their word from the Latin 'tomus,' which came from Greek.

The Spanish word is 'tomo.' As explained earlier (13 years ago), the Spanish '-ísimo' suffix was added to the noun 'tomo' to form the name of the website.

As -ísimo only applies to adjectives the best the site name suggests is "de tomísimo y lomísimo" (suggesting "of the greatest importance").

The use of ísimo with nouns might be considered non-standard and somewhat tounge-in-cheek, but that's not to say it doesn't exist. For example, the term generalísimo.

tomisimo
 
No es español, si no llevaría tilde en la primera 'i', siendo palabra esdrújula. Un 'tomo' grande no es.

Creo que sea questión de acento y tilde: tomisimo - tomisimo-tomisimo-tomisimo :banghead:

aleCcowaN August 11, 2019 02:57 PM

El logo del sitio contiene esa tilde. El problema es que si se la utiliza en la base de datos puede dar origen a algunos problemas prácticos en Internet.

De todos modos, el uso de sustantivos creados al estilo de "tomísimo" es tratado por la Nueva Gramática de la Lengua Española en la página 527, punto 7.4m. (*)

Allí encontré la explicación de por qué el nombre del sitio no me producía el mismo efecto que a David.
