Depends on the connotation, could be

girlfriend / broad / skirt / tail

  • A story without love is not worth telling
Also, "chick" for "woman". Most women find it offensive.

It's slang for girlfriend. The equivalent for boyfriend is gomenos. In Greek alphabet γκόμενα and γκόμενος.

It's slang for a) girlfriend b) woman.

You can say "η γκόμενά μου", meaning "my girlfriend", or you can say "ωραία γκόμενα" meaning "nice broad".

Also, "bird", "lass" (B. English).

(Mavrodon, "γκόμενα" does not necessarily mean "girlfriend". Like NadiaF already wrote, it depends on the connotation.)

You can say "η γκόμενά μου", meaning "my girlfriend", or you can say "ωραία γκόμενα" meaning "nice broad".
You are right in the second case. In that case can't we say: What a dish!,  as well?

Another word for "gomena": freak (as in Rick James' "Superfreak")

Correct me if I am wrong but I think that "lass" or "lassie"(??) has nothing to do with gomena. It's probably based (according to the Consice Oxford Dic) on the old Norse word Laskura (unmarried). In old english (scottish or irish, in general northern) it probably means something like pretty country girl, a fair unmarried girl. In greek the possible meanings would be "tsoupra", "lygerh kopela/nia", and if someone is interested in poetry or older greek stories probably she/he can find more at that direction. It is something like "lad" for "palikari", "nios". Or another word that were being used in older greek is "agaphtikia". Take all these with a grain of salt. :-)

Μέσα από στράτα απόμονη κι απόσκια
Με αγγέλους του ʼδη μόνο στοιχειωμένη
Που κει θεά μ' όνομα νύχτα βασιλεύει
Κάτω στα μέρη αυτά έχω φτάσει, τώρα...
