Συγνώμη, but I've only ever heard "Συγνώμη" said in this situation. By Greeks, like. Is this not right?
You know what, you're right! In this situation, a graecophone would always say "Συγγνώμη" (which is the correct spelling, or, sometimes, as jaye16 notes, just "sorry"!) He would say "Λυπάμαι" in a situation where an anglophone would say "I'm sorry". I know that "I am sorry" means "Λυπάμαι", but I think "Sorry", on its own, can also mean "I apologise", isn't that right?
The presence of the "!" here makes me think they're talking about a situation where someone steps on your foot at the Πανηγύρι and who then says "Sorry!" casually. And that's why I think "Συγνώμη" is more your man here.
Συγνώμη, means "I apologize" but is also use similar to "sorry". Λυπάμαι means "sorry" "I take pity" " I regret". Around Greece, you will very often hear "sorry". :-)
I got the right answer by choosing the only one that had a capitalized first letter.
This must be on the Android. Yes, I noticed that you can find the first word of the sentence that way...but shhh I won't tell if you don't. :))) The power of observation is another aspect of learning.
What's the difference between συγγνώμη and λυπάμαι? I've never λυπάμαι tbh xD
"συγγνώμη" means "excuse me or forgive me" You can use it for example if you interrupt someone etc. or get someone's attention. But also if you have done something and want to be forgiven or excused. "λυπάμαι" literally means 'I'm sorry' e.g. I feel bad (sorry) for a problem, a worry etc you have.
It would help the learning if you included the pronunciation at least in the check stage. You have pronunciations with most excercizes and they really help. This word "Συγγώνμυ is very hard to try to sound out on my own at this early stage.
I do not know if this is the proper place to ask this question, but better now than to forget it: I am using ' thefreedictionary ' website in order to check with the correct pronounciation, does anyone know if this website is reliable? Thanks and sorry to disturb.
