What does the Greek word ‘malaka’ mean?
Dude Changed status to publish February 9, 2022
The term “malaka” is an affectionate term for a child or family member that one does not want to be too stern with.
While it doesn’t actually mean anything, literally translated its meaning would be fruitless/useless.
But in a sociocultural and linguistic context, it is often used as slang for someone who’s being stubborn or is trying to prove themselves stronger than they really are. It can also refer to those who deliberately make errors in order to cause problems. The word has evolved from the Muslim culture of Asia Minor since the 16th century up until today where both Turks and Greeks share this terminology.
