Question
What's the difference between somatos and somatikos? And do these words exist in modern Greek as well?

Answer
Hi Andrew,

thank you for your question. Both words are used in Modern Greek, too.

The word "somatos" a neutral noun, the genitive singular form of "soma" (=body)
The other one, "somatikos" is an adjective, nominative singular masculine meaning "bodily, referring to the body".

Have a good day and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Cordially,
Michael
