algos - pain - dolore - bol

のポスト ギリシャ フォーラム

I’m searching for exact ethimologic meaning of the word ἄλγος (àlgos), in Greek, modern and ancient. Isn’t simply to find it in other languages because of Latin influences.
I’m asking myself how many words and how many different kind of pain Greek as a language discerns?
Thanks a lot,
