RFC: Greek/Russian/etc. terminology

== RFC: Greek/Russian/etc. terminology ==
 
The developing articles on [[vestments]] got me thinking -- for many technical terms, there are often cognates between the various languages of Orthodoxy (e.g., ''epitrachelion'' and ''epitrachil'') where there's no big difference. There are a goodly number of instances where the words aren't remotely related (e.g., ''epigonation'' and ''palitsa'' '''or''' ''exorasson'', ''riassa'' and ''jibbee'').
 
I propose that for article names, we favor the Greek terminology over others. The reason for this proposition is that the formational years of our tradition essentially happened in the Greek-speaking world, and even in the non-Greek languages, there still is a certain favoring of Greek terminology, so it's already got a more universal character.
