Υεια σας,

I am wondering if anyone can help me with what φέξε means. I have heard it in the phrase

φέξε μου και γλίστρησα

and I am also interested in what φέξε means on its own and from what verb it comes.

Σας ευχαριστώ πολύ!

Βικτωρία smile

  φέξε μου και γλίστρησα = what a hope!
taken from the magenta En-Gr & Gr-En dictionary

(literal translation = shed some light - I've slipped)
φέξε derives from the verb φέγγω (=beam, shine...)

also φεγγάρι = moon
ie Σελήνη

Hope that helps
