¡Saludos de Ramses!

Hola a todo,

I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Ramses and I'm currently a second-year (as of last week) college student majoring Spanish. It's actually the first year that I'm serious about studying Spanish; before I went to college I couldn't even greet someone in Spanish.

Although I like college, I prefer studying on my own. But with my scholarship I'm able to study Spanish full-time, so that's just the best about it I guess.

Next to my studies I have a weblog which I update about once a week. I only cover stuff a Spanish student should know, and I share my struggles and positive thoughts. Just check it once in a while: http://www.spanish-only.com

¡Adiós!

It's writen in my language: Spanish (Spain)
abour sosia (I have written it several times, it's a copy-paste )

sosia(sosias): double, doppelgänger It's my "other me" in the forums

sosia:
In ancient Greek there was the name SOSIAS (sigma-omega-sigma-iota with the acute accent-alpha-sigma) which is for example a slave's name in The Wasps” by Aristophanes.

It is however after a long time that this name took the meaning of “the living double of another“.

This happened after the Roman playwrigth Plautus (c. 254-184 B.C.) used the name Sosias in his comedy “Amphitruo” where there is a servant of Amphitryon just named Sosias.

In this comedy it is the god Mercury who assumes the double of Sosia to help Zeus that, disguised as Amphitryon, came to Alcmene, Amphitryon ‘s wife, and seduced her, while Amphitryon was away from home.

To conclude, the word ‘sosia’ was originally a name that later had the meaning of ‘double’, thanks to Plautus.

Orale.

Ok, sosia, I got it.

Your nick's very original, and it's very strange, never I've heared that nick or name just called sosia, but is good it has a nick original more when is of middle age.

Regards. sosia.
