Youtuber user YouKnowWho has assembled a veritable smorgasborg of Kassandra and other characters yelling the word at each other, and it’s actually surprising how many use cases there are for it. Additionally, while I don’t know any Greek, ancient or otherwise, it is neat to pick up the tenses of “maláka” simply through watching all the ways that it gets used.
