Is μηχανάκι really used for scooter in Greece? If so, what is σκούτερ used for? Thanks.
Μηχανάκι as far as I can tell is used for any small two - wheeled motorized vehicle. But there is also σκούτερ, and outer more specific names: μοτοσικλέτα, motorcycle etc. are used.
Instead of "μηχανάκι", it would be correct to say "μηχανή" that means "motorcycle" but also "machine" or "engine".
Pronunciation sounds like "mihanaiki" (motorcycle).
Are you referring to the second α? The word sounds correct.
'My uncle didn't find the bike' was marked wrong.
We have added bike as an alternative translation.

In all of Greece, actually, and it is accepted as one of the possible translations.
