I am still trying to make out the γ sound. In the tips it is said to be like the w in woman. Here however it sounds so much more like a 'y' sound 'yeeneka'
Yes, the letter γ has two sounds: [ɣ] (like a voiced version of [χ]) before back vowels /a o u/ and [ʝ] (similar to English "y" but with a bit more friction) before front vowels [e i].
Here the gamma is in front of a front vowel and so it sounds similar to the "y" in English.
(Actually, three sounds since the letter can also stand for [ŋ] as in "sing".)
Thanks. What happens to it in γλυκό? O there was a better recording now... so I guess 'gl'
The basic sound is [ɣ] and so that's what you should be hearing before λ ρ and, I think, also before ν μ.
I put 'The woman drinks water' but it said it was wrong and it should have said lady. But above it says woman. Which is right?? Thanks
I wrote WOMAN and now they want me to put "lady". when did she get more refined? :p
