Γεια σου Alain,


Εμ, αλήθεια είναι! Να σε ρωτήσω κάτι: Πώς προφέρεται κανονικά το όνομά σου; Θέλω να το γράφω σωστά στα ελληνικά όμως δεν είμαι σίγουρη. Άλαν, Άλεν, Αλέν, Αλάν;

Γεια σου Alain,


Κι εγώ έχω συνάχι πολύ συχνά, κάθε μέρα, όμως δεν κρυολογώ πολύ συχνά τώρα τελευταία. Τα καλά της καραντίνας!

Στεφανία,


That's perfect! It will be very useful for me when we can return to Greece after they allow us to travel again. Έχω συχνά συνάχι αλλά έχω σπανίως κρυώσει.

Γεια σου Alain!


I think you mean "έχω συνάχι" but it doesn't necessarily mean you have a cold. It just means that you have a stuffy or running nose. It could be due to allergy... or a cold. You can say that συνάχι is one of the symptoms of a cold, of hay fever or other allergic reactions etc.


Cheers!

Ευχαριστώ Στεφανία! Is there another word for "I have a cold"? I think I saw it in another lesson, it sounds somewhat like sinus, at least that is way I tried to remember it. Συνάχι, or something like that?

Hi Alain,


Yes, it's ζεστός, ζεστή, ζεστό (adjectives) and η ζέστη (noun).

As for cold, it's κρύος, κρύα, κρύο (adjectives) and το κρύο (noun).


Beware of the English "I have a cold" > Έχω κρυώσει / Είμαι κρυωμένος / Έχω πάθει κρύωμα.


Cheers,

Γα σας. I think I am understanding that like in many other languages, there are both an adjective and a noun for cold (I am cold, It's because of the cold) and hot (it is hot, Beware of the heat), but I am having a hard time getting the words right in Greek. I think I have it for hot: adjective would be ζεστός, ζεστή, ζεστό and the noun is ζέστη (feminine). Can you confirm or correct and tell me what the equivalent is for cold?


Ευχαριστώ

Hi Dagfinn,


That's a good observation. You can use χαμηλός too as an opposite to ψηλός. But it depends on the context. For example:


Αυτό το βουνό είναι χαμηλό και αυτό είναι ψηλό. (This mountain is low and this one is tall.)

Βάλε το βιβλίο στο πιο χαμηλό ράφι, όχι στο πιο ψηλό. (Put the book on the lowest shelf, not on the highest.)


In adverbs:

Το αεροπλάνο πετάει πότε χαμηλά, πότε ψηλά.


That's because "ψηλός" means "tall" AND "high"... again depending on context.


I hope that makes sense!

I am a bit surprised to see that "χαμηλός" which literally means low is used as opposite of tall - ψηλός instead of what I think is correct: "κοντός" which means short.....comments?
