Once I learned that in Greek sometimes the pronunciation goes across multiple words like in "δεν πίνει". Like the letter combination "μπ" is pronounced "mb", in this case the two words are pronounced as one like "δεμπίνει" with an "mb" sound in the middle. Is this true?
I see. I am new to the world of Greek, by curiosity, how much could a native Greek understand from an ancient Greek text. WOuld it be like Italian/Latin, where I guess not a lot of understanding could be reached without first learning Latin, or is it closer?
