I think that the verb δινω is so similar to Latin dare, which means the same thing. Does anyone know whether my assumption is true or not?

It's from Ancient Greek δίδωμι meaning give with roots in Proto-Indo-European. See here for more information. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%CE%B4%CE%AF%CE%B4%CF%89%CE%BC%CE%B9

There was no μου in the regular speed audio this time, but when I did it in slow it was there. Interesting. It happened a second time so I reported it.
