What is your name?

Let's continue our conversation. How would we would ask what their name is.

τί ὄνομα σου ἐστιν;

Did you notice the punctuation at the end of ἐστιν? It looks like an English semi-colon, but this is what we use today for a Greek question mark.

So go to a person. Say hello. Tell them your name, and ask them for their name. Keep doing this until it gets easy to do.



Why doesn't the accent over ti change to grave?

I thought that in Greek you lower your pitch at the end of the sentence. The recorded examples raise the pitch for a question, as in English.
