Cocytus? Kokytos? Kocytean?

關於這段文字,我有點問題,謝謝。

‘Kocytean’ is a wordplay on Cocytus or Kokytos,

meaning “the river of wailing” (from the Greek Κωκυτός, “lamentation”)

and is a river in the underworld in Greek mythology.

為什麼他說Kocytean是Cocytus ( Kokytos )的雙關語?

他後面又解釋Cocytus 是悲嘆之河的意思,

那Kocytean的雙關是雙關在哪?

如果把wordplay解釋成文字遊戲,

那Cocytus是怎麼構成Kocytean這個字的?

原文:‘Kocytean’ is a wordplay on Cocytus or Kokytos, meaning “the river of wailing” (from the Greek Κωκυτός, “lamentation”) and is a river in the underworld in Greek mythology. Cocytus flows into the river Acheron, across which is the underworld, the mythological abode of the dead.

    Cocytus = Kokytus = "river of wailing"

    C --> K

    通常還是用"C"

    Kocytean is wordplay of Cocytus

    --> Kocytean is wordplay of Kocytus

    懂了!謝謝Louis大大。

    那麼請問 "tean" 是有什麼特定的字尾嗎?

    ‘Kocytean’ is a wordplay on Cocytus or Kokytos

    大概是指

    這是一個由Kokytos取了Ko

    而由Cocytus取了cy

    所形成的組合字Ko+cy+tean

    是一個文字遊戲

    我不知tean的由來。英文好像沒有這個字尾。也許是用來拼出聲音而己。
