Trying to learn greek. Can someone explain the ending of the word boy in this sentence? My assumption is that it's a specific posessive ending in the neuter form. No? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!

Genitive / plural / neutral noun ending in "-ι"

For the declension of nouns see:

*την απόστροφο

"Απόστροφος" is one of those very rare feminine words ending in -ος still left in Modern Greek, declined like this:

  • Nominative: η απόστροφος | οι απόστροφοι
  • Genitive: της αποστρόφου | των αποστρόφων
  • Accusative: την απόστροφο | τις αποστρόφους

The same goes for η παράγραφος (paragraph), η οδός (street) - along with all the words that originate from it, like έξοδος, είσοδος, πάροδος, πρόοδος έφοδος, άνοδος, κάθοδος... -, η ψήφος (vote) and many proper nouns (names of islands mostly) like Κύπρος, Αμοργός, Πάρος, Κίμωλος, Σύφνος or cities e.g. Λεμεσός, Πάφος.

The apostrophe key is located to the right of the English semicolon [;] / Greek acute accent [΄] key, that is two keys to the right of [L] / [Λ], just before Enter [↵].

Hope this helps :)
