Υεια σας,

Can anyone help explain the meaning of παρέκει. I see it in phrases like απο εδώ και μην παρέκει, but I am not sure from what verb παρέκει comes!

Σας ευχαριστώ!

  Παρέκει is an adverb and means “farther on” eg. λίγο παρέκει “a littler farther on”. It also forms part of idiomatic expressions like ώς εδώ και μη παρέκει “that’s the limit” or “I’ve had as much as I can take”.

Hope this helps,

  Similar to the phrase we say in English - "Enough is enough".
