· polupragmon ·

polupragmon, pl. polupragmones (adj.); polupragmosune (abstract noun) · Lit. “one who conducts much business,” i.e. “too much.” Usually pejorative in the eyes of the speaker. The fifth-century Athenian empire was according to its opponents the product of cooperative Athenian polupragmosune; on an individual level, the term has overtones of “officious” and “busybody.”

Greek: πολυπράγμων, πολυπράγμονες .
