"A man eats bread."
Translation:Ένας άντρας τρώει ψωμί.
How come the pronounciation of "bread" sounds like they are accenting the ω (PSO-mee), when the accent is on the ί? I looked it up on Google Translate to check myself and they pronounced it how i thought it was by the spelling (pso-MEE).
Let me know, by the way this course is awesome!
In a standard QWERTY Windows keyboard you just need to hit the key next to L before the vowel in a Greek keyboard: ; + α = ά. I suppose something similar is the case for Macs. In Android the accented vowel options come up if you hold a vowel key a bit longer, as you would do for numbers. Similarly for iOS I guess? For other keyboard layouts like QWERTZ this could be slightly different.
Yes, like the reply before mine, look for the ";" key and click it BEFORE the vowel, that way you will get the accented vowel. (Same as in Spanish/French). BUT if you have a Latin/Spanish keyboard, you will have to look for the tilde key (the " ´ " or " ' " key) before you click on the vowel.
Breath marks are not used in Standard Modern Greek. What you see is the tonos (accent mark) and it looks like this: ΄ pointing from the upper right corner to the lower left corner. Using the accent is NOT optional in Greek (but Duolingo won't penalise you for missing accents in this course, unless maybe omitting the accent creates another word, e.g. πώς= how, πως= that).
