is τροφή and (forgive spelling, φαγιτο) interchangeable? any help would be great:) ) I'm very much a beginner
Sometimes yes, but usually φαγητό means food and τροφή means nourishment
I don't think this is a word people need to know in the beginning. I can count on one hand the number of times I have ever used this word.

i have the greek keyboard - see αδφλκξηγ αιοευ - don't seem to be able to add the accents and have tried combinations of keys without success.
On a standard QWERTY keyboard, when switched to Greek, you first hit the key next to L and then, straight away, the key of the vowel you want to add the accent on: ; + α = ά. You won't see anything before you hit the vowel key though.
Edit: Of course, the forums link posted by jaye provides this information and many helpful resources for the Greek course. Do have a look, don't miss out! :)
