Θα ήθελα να νοικιάσω ένα αυτοκίνητο, is one of the smartest things to ask for if you want to travel around Greece.

Hi Dana,


I believe you are referring to:

Μπορώ να το επιστρέψω στην Αθήνα;


να is a conjunction. It is used in many different ways. One of them is to help in the formation of verbs in the subjunctive mood. This mood expresses something we wish or desire and is usually not a fact, but an unreal event or an event that hasn't happened yet. For example when you say in English "I want to...(+ verb)", the "to + verb" part is what "να + verb" is in Greek. So in the above sentence we have να + επιστρέψω = to return.


In between να and επιστρέψω there's το which is a form of a personal pronoun in the neuter gender. It means "it". So να το + επιστρέψω means "to return it".


If I was to literally translate this sentence word by word, it would be:

Can I to it return in Athens? (doesn't make much sense, but it's how we say this in Greek)


I hope this helps!

In the second to the last sentence it says "na to" which isn't explained. Why is it there and when do I use it?
