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!


Why is "ένας άντρας" but not "ο άντρας" ?


"Ο αντρασ" is "the man" while "ενασ αντρασ" is "a man"


How do you type an accent over the letter?


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.


Could I have written an article before "ψωμί" as you predominantly have to write articles?


Why άρτο instead of ψωμί?


άρτο is the accusative of άρτος and καθαρεύουσα. Modern Greek uses ψωμί. The word άρτος is still used in compounds: αρτοποιείο bakkery

Why is it that you don't have to put "το" ψωμί in this sentence? Whereas sometimes you have to use "το" or it is marked false.....??


It's wrong to use το because the man eats (some) bread, not the bread.
