Help with a particular word?

Beitrag von fantaboobs » 9. Jun 2017 02:21

Hi there,
I'm currently interviewing a man from German origin who is currently living in the Netherlands. H has said a phrase that I don't understand and can't find any background on, I'm hoping someone may be able to help?
In context "What my mom calls a "lo-mo-na-resalis" so someone who likes a lot of different things..." (in terms of work). That's the closest representation I can get from pronunciation.
Sorry if this seems ridiculous! Hope there's enough information there.
Thank you again!
Lewis

This doesn't make a lot of sense, could you give us the German sentence instead or maybe link to a recording somewhere?

That's not German it's the latin phrase "homo universalis" which means something like polymath.
