So does θέλει mean "he wants", θέλεις mean "you want", θέλουν mean "they want" etc? Because this is seeming a lot like Spanish with its endings.
i want = εγώ θέλω , you want = εσύ θέλεις, he wants = αυτός θέλει, she wants= αυτή θέλει, it wants = αυτό θέλει, we want = εμείς θέλουμε, you want = εσείς θέλετε, they want = αυτοί θέλουν
Ay first, I found it a little peculiar, However, this would be appropriately used in say a petshop, where one would look at the option of adopting either a male or a female animal, and the one who wants to adopt the female would say "Θέλο το κοριτσι". Or at least that is how I interpret it.
It may sound funny but at least it makes some sense. Contrary to some other phrases I have seen and sadly cannot unsee...
I remember one Greek song, I think it was Antique, and the singer repeated "σε θέλω σε θέλο nanana. I didn't know a word in Greek, but somewhy those words stayed in my memory.
Πόσο κάνει; is the right one... or Πόσο κοστίζει; if you want to buy something.
There are plenty of phrases for the slang version of this question, like: πόσα μπικικίνια; , πόσα μαρούλια; , πόσα τάλαρα; etc. :-)
pulls phone out of pocket "umm yes 911 some creepy Greek man from Duolingo wants to kidnap a child."
I want the girl, but in which sense? Like 'I want the girl (in my team)' or 'I desire the girl (with passion) or both?
