We use the same verb. "Αυτή ειναι" which means "she is" and "αυτοί είναι" which means "they are". You can understand it from the αρκούδα. The bear is female in greek. So it is. Αυτή είναι αρκούδα.
Does this sentence mean both "She is a bear" & This is a bear"?
Thanks in advance!
Αυτός/αυτή/αυτό are both personal and demonstrative pronouns so they can be translated as either he/she/it or this. However, in English, only pets are referred to as he/she, therefore you wouldn't really say 'She is a bear'.
How can I understand this by ear without context, if αυτή and αυτοί have the same verb είναι?
I don't think "They are a bear" makes sense - how can several people (or things) together be one bear?
If you would like to say, 'she is a bear' in greek, is it stressing αυτή or omitting μία or how?
So the translation is wrong? αυτη means "she" but it is translated as "it"
