I wrote "We thank you very much" but it marked it wrong.. Isn't "ευχαριστούμε πάρα πολύ" implying you are more than one person in your group? I mean, if you are the only one in your group who speaks greek you could say "Ευχαριστούμε (We thank you) πάρα πολύ, instead of just "Ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ." So shouldn't it accept "We thank you very much"? Or is this not proper in English?
English does have "Thank you much." I am a native English speaker. I say "thank you much" frequently.
If you don't believe me, perhaps this corpus data will convince you. In fact, it clearly shows that "thank you much" used to be preferred over or at least used more than "thank you very much" in earlier centuries at least in writing.
Unbelievable that I am getting downvotes on this even thought I provided indisputable proof. And let me guess the downvotes are mainly coming from people who are not native speakers of English but who always seem to think they know English grammar better than the native speakers which is just such ridiculous arrogance.
No; it literally means something like "at five minutes to...."
For example, στο εφτά παρά πέντε is "at five minutes to seven".
If you leave out the hour, you get the metaphorical meaning "just before the deadline, in the nick of time", from something like "with only five minutes to spare".
