Hi Lynne!


What a great question!


I think almost everybody would say:


2-10, 38, 0-5, 7-25, so δύο δέκα, τριανταοχτώ, μηδέν πέντε, εφτά είκοσι πέντε, with pauses in the voice where I put commas.


First people say the code, 210, but they always break it down to 2 and 10.


The people mention the rest of the numbers in pairs. Since here we have a pair, 05, that is below ten, we break it down but pronounce them closely together before making a pause. Then that leaves as with the last three numbers with are usually broken down after the first digit. Of course that depends on the number, for example, if it's something like 2102002001, then people could simple say:

2-10, 200, 2001, δύο δέκα, διακόσια, δύο χιλιάδες ένα. People usually figure out their own formula depending on the number. In this particular case I would group the last 4 digits together because every groups would sound unique, whereas if I would say 200, 200, 1, διακόσια, διακόσια, ένα and I don't leave a long pause after the second 200, people would stick it with 1 and think it's 201, διακόσια ένα, so there would be a digit missing. I hope it's clear!


Keep in mind area codes vary, so there could be 4-digit codes and that would change the way you break down numbers but it's hard for me to come with a formula for such numbers. The above formula is good though for metropolitan areas like Attica and Thessaloniki.


I hope this was insightful!

How do you recite a phone number in Greek?

For example, 210/3805725. I know I can recite the numbers one by one, but this isn't the way it's typically done. Usually they're grouped...?

Thanks!
