The aim of this paper motivated by the compound noun 'ecology', is to contribute to explaining Greek "oikos'' (house) in a historical perspective. Ιt is shown that the compound is a modern coinage, although several cognates are much older. Oikos (woikos) and the semantically related domos (Latin domus) are traced back both to classical times and beyond. Woikos is functionally examined on root and morphological level. An attempt is made at combining morphological and semantic features, and some suggestions are made concerning the early features of dwelling and its terminology.
