"The man caused the damage."
Translation:Ο άντρας έκανε τη ζημιά.
Hm. I'm thinking. I've seen the word προξένησε in general sentences, where the article the is ommited.
Exp. Αυτός προξένησε ζημιά ενός εκατομμυρίου.
Ο τυφώνας προξένησε πολλούς θανάτους.
Is it used in just general sentences like that?If not, I'll make sure to add it as an alternative translation. ^.^
It's wrong to include it before the zeta of ζημιά by current spelling rules, which you can find described here: http://ebooks.edu.gr/modules/ebook/show.php/DSDIM-F102/580/3784,16613/
In short, you need the final nu before π, τ, κ, μπ, ντ, γκ, ξ, ψ as well as before vowels; and you may not use it before β, δ, γ, φ, θ, χ, μ, ν, λ, ρ, σ, ζ.
(τ also includes τσ, τζ which are arguably also digraphs.)
That said, the spelling rules of modern Greek have changed occasionally over the past few decades and the current rules are not uncontroversial.
But in this course, we try to stick to the rules currently taught at school, regardless of how we ourselves learned to write.
There are some spellings in this course that are wrong by the current rules which we can't easily change now, but we'll try to eliminate them in the next version.
