All of them have the same etymon or "root word", ancient ὅμοιος. Παρόμοιος is composed of παρά+όμοις and μοιάζω comes from ὁμοιάζω.Thanks dmtrs - I didn't know μοιάζω could also take σε. I think παρόμοιος and ίδιος also take με: similar to and the same as . Or do they also have other possibilities? As I write this I realise that μοιάζω and παρόμοιος contain the same element /μοι/. And also όμοιος.
Very good, Helleno File!As I write this I realise that μοιάζω and παρόμοιος contain the same element /μοι/. And also όμοιος.
παρόμοιος and ίδιος are only followed by με - if they are followed by an accompanying word, that is:I think παρόμοιος and ίδιος also take με
Thank you. Very helpful!μοιάζει με ποντίκι
μοιάζω με γάτα
The options are:
"He looks like a..." > "μοιάζει με..."
"He looks like the.../his father/Mary..." (anything specific) > "Μοιάζει στο.../στον πατέρα του/στη Μαίρη..."
Also: "Μοιάζει με το.../με τον πατέρα του/με τη Μαίρη..."
Also: "Μοιάζει του πατέρα του/της Μαίρης..." (for people).
