How does the apostrophe work in Greek?
Is it supposed to be a punctuation mark or is it supposed to be a part of a word? If it's a part of a word, how is it pronounced?
I have seen phrases with the apostrophe: ( e.g. σ' αγαπώ ), but I'm still confused about the apostrophe.
Can anybody help me with this?
In the example you give the apostrophe is to show that there is a letter or letters removed from a phrase to make its pronunciation smoother. Just as in English instead of "He is going" we use "He's going".
We have "σ'αγαπώ" rather than the full "σε αγαπώ".
