Μπλε, μαύρο και κίτρινο. Είναι Ντόρι! (I'm guessing that's the Greek spelling of Dory; am I right?)

When I saw my name spelt: ντουερντοθ I said: that's not me! :-)

Why does it say "My bedroom is blue" when I mouse over "μπλε"?

I used "The fish are blue" which wasn't accepted. So, what is "are" in Greek?

"(they) are" is also είναι, just like "(he, she, it) is".

But το ψάρι can only refer to one fish -- several fish would be τα ψάρια.

Thanks much! I need to get into the conjugation tables pronto.
