It's mine! Thanks for finding it :)
So, how do you call a piano in Greek then?
Could this also refer to a teddy bear? Or an ursine toy of some sort?
A toybear is usually diminutive in Greek
αρκουδάκι = small bear, baby bear, teddy bear
Winnie the Pooh = Γουίνι το Αρκουδάκι
Awwww that's cute! :3
I understand αυτή here refers to "this" feminine noun, but can this sentence also mean "Whose bear is she?" or is there another way to ask that (where "she" refers to a female bear)?
Αυτός/αυτή/αυτό are used as both personal and demonstrative pronouns. Here it's the latter. Since in greek pronouns give away the gender, I guess the distinction between "Whose bear is this?" and "Whose bear is she?" doesn't make much sense to me.
Ah, that makes sense. Thank you!
"Whose bear is that?" should also be accepted!
Yes, added, thank you!
I imagine a circus bear getting loose and wrecking havoc on Athens.
It's amusing, but I suspect it's more likely to be a teddy bear dropped in a daycare, or something of the sort.
Amusing. Just FYI: wreaking havoc
So, instead of having a separate word like "whose", the genitive like "of whom" is always used in Greek?
What do you think "whose" is, if not the genitive of "who"? :)
(Or at least it used to be, back when English still had a separate genitive case -- this form survived so now we have "whose" and "who".)
Hi, could someone help me with the meaning of "ποιανού"?
ποιος, ποια, ποιο is who in nominative masc., fem, and neutr
in genitive whose , it becomes: ποιου or ποιανού, ποιας or ποιανής, ποιου or ποιανού
Is it correct for the male bot NOT to pronounce the "ρ" of αρκούδα? Could a Greek native speaker answer this question?
The pronunciation is correct. Don't confuse the Greek R with other languages that have more intense sounds. what is here is correct. You can hear native Greek speakers here:
