Γεια σου Elias,


Σε ευχαριστούμε για το μήνυμα.

1) About να + "μείνω" and "μένω". It is all about the tense and subjunctive mood we want to use.

Let's say "Θα ήθελα να μένω σε ένα παλάτι." meaning "I would like living in a palace." implies continuity. In the other case "Θα ήθελα να μείνω σε ένα παλάτι." means "I would like to live (e.g. once) in a palace.".

Another example about θα+verb. "Θα χιονίσει αύριο" (It will snow tomorrow) is future simple and "Θα χιονίζει όλο το χειμώνα" (It will be snowing all winter) is future continuous.

2) About "βραδιά" and "βράδυ". Both can be used, since they are synonyms. That's why the speakers say both of them.


If you have any other question, don't hesitate to contact us again.


The best,

Nektarios

Γεια σου,


δύο ερωτήσεις.



1) Γιατί αυτό είναι "μείνω" αντί "μένω" εδώ;


Γεια σας, θα ήθελα να "μείνω" για ένα βράδυ στις 22 Σεπτεμβρίου.



2) Γιατί αυτό είναι "βραδιά" αντί "βράδυ" εδώ;


Βεβαίως. Μια βραδιά στις 22 Σεπτεμβρίου. Πόσα άτομα;



Ευχαριστώ.

Hi Toni,


Καπνιζόντων is in the genitive case, the case that expresses "ownership." So we use it whenever we want to say that an area or something in general belongs to smokers (smokers' room). Just like when we say in English "Mary's book". Καπνίζοντες, in the nominative case, is used when the smokers are the subject of a sentence. For example: Οι καπνίζοντες είναι πιο πολλοί από τους μη καπνίζοντες. The smokers are more than the non-smokers. The nominative case is the case of all subjects no matter what :)


I hope it's clearer now! If not or if you have any questions, let me know.

Hello,


I have grammar question. Why do you use the word καπνιζόντων instead of καπνίζοντες in some of the sentences?

Thank you! =) //Toni
