  5. "Όχι αυτό δεν είναι το όνομα …

"Όχι αυτό δεν είναι το όνομα μου."

Translation:No, this is not my name.

Should be όνομά μου

You're right, but Duolingo doesn't allow us to use two stresses in the best translation.

We have added το όνομά μου as alternative ;)

August 31, 2016


Huh? That's odd.

In general, there are no Greek word with stress beyond the THIRD syllable. So the stress in these cases is double, as όνομα μου is pronounced as one word actually, όνομαμου. That's why it is used double stress. So in any case you have to stress beyond the third syllable, put an accent on the second syllable, starting from the end. So it becomes όνομά μου. Is it clear enough?

I was wondering about "Duolingo doesn't allow us to use two stresses in the best translation.", not the secondary stress itself ;). Still, someone will surely find your explanation helpful.

Unfortunately it still does not accept όνομά μου as an alternative. I'm doing a general strengthening exercise in the android system.

Are there no commas after όχι resp. ναι in Greek?

"Are there no commas after όχι resp. ναι in Greek?" - Interesting question. And the answer?

They call me Jane

I used 'no, it is not my name' and I was corrected to 'no, that is not my name'. I didn't think that 'αυτό' was used as 'that'

No, that is not my name.

Yes, it's one of the translations.

When clicked on individually, Duo linguo translated nearly every word in this sentence as a form of "not". I'm very confused...

November 7, 2018


It's just a multi-part hint that's added to make the translation of the sentence easier. There are also individual hints for each word, at the bottom of the list. ^.^

Just a question, is the sentence (δεν είναι το μου όνομα) . Grammatically correct? Or does it have to be as it is on the exercise?

Μου must follow the noun, so it has to be as presented on the exercise.
