"Το κουτάλι είναι κάτω από την καρέκλα."

Translation:The spoon is under the chair.

I thought I could say τη καρεκλα here, because the article is followed by an initial consonant. What is the rule for omitting the final -ν of the article? (την / τη)


You cannot omit the -ν if the following word starts with a vowel or κ,π,τ,ψ,ξ,γκ,μπ,ντ,τζ,τσ.
