Αυτός τρώει=He eats,
Εσύ τρως=you eat. In Greek, verb endings change according to person.
Is τρως past-tense? I keep grtting stuck on this one thinking it would be τρώει
As troll explains in this discussion, it's only a different person:
Αυτός τρώει=He eats, Εσύ τρως=you eat. In Greek, verb endings change according to person.
You can use wiktionary to check verb conjugation or noun/adjective declension, or any of the other resources suggested here https://www.duolingo.com/comment/21928011.
How come it becomes Τρως when other verbs ends ends with "-εις" when it's in a "you" form? (As in θέλεις, εχεις etc)
Τρώω is kind of a special verb (τρώεις wouldn't sound that great, so it's τρως instead) . And it's probably the only one you'll ever come across that's conjugated this way. I guess you could just memorize it as an exception. ^.^

You really don't need all of it now, Just keep doing the sentences as you get to them and you'll get used to them in practice.
DL drop down menu shows "stop eating" and stop to eat"-- θα σταματήσει να τρώει and σταματήσετε να τρώτε. Not even close.
Sorry, we are experiencing a problem with the drop down menu. It moves the hints around. We are working on correcting it. Thank you for your input.
