Γεια σου Αΐσα,


It's a phonetic phenomenon. We add a second accent mark and we stress that syllable too because the proparoxytone words (accented in the 3rd-to last syllable) such as ανακάτεψε tend to be pronounced closely with personal weak pronouns that immediately follow. And because that happens, it sounds unnatural because in Greek there is a golden rule when it comes to accentuation. No syllable can go past the 3rd-to last syllable in a word, so since these two are closely pronounced (ανακάτεψετα) it sounds as if the accent mark is in the 4th-to last syllable, so our natural feel for the language makes us add another stress to make the speech sound natural.


You will find this explained in grammar as "enclitics". There's a lesson on that here:

I hope it helps!

Γεια,

In line 10, "ανακάτεψε/ανακάτεψέ" has 1 accent, while in elsewhere it has 2 accents.

Που είναι σωστά : ανακάτεψε ή ανακάτεψέ ;🤔;
