Hi Hiro,


That's an interesting question.


I think the lesson that will help you understand this is the lesson about the diathesis of a verb which is a different thing from the voice of a verb.

https://www.greekpod101.com/lesson/intermediate-1-a-strange-reason-for-being-late-in-greece/


The mediopassive diathesis might remind you of reflexive verbs of other languages. However, in other languages such as English, Spanish or French, other words (like pronouns) are needed to show the reflexiveness (yo me lavo), whereas in Greek the verb itself with the help of the context denotes the reflexiveness (ex. πλένομαι = I wash myself).


Have a look at the lesson and let me know if you still have any questions.


All the best,


Stefania

Question about the voice.

Hello Stefia

I felt a little bit strange when I saw this phrase.


Το κορίτσι έπλυνε το πρόσωπό της.

"έπλυνε" is active voice, this phrase means "The girl washed her face" This could mean "She washed her face by herself"

c.f Το κορίτσι έπλυνε το πρόσωπό του αδελφού του. She washed her brother's face.

Then, The most accurate form would be using the middle-voice

"Το κορίτσι πλύθηκε το πρόσωπό." but in this case it could not be necessary the "της" because the verb form assumes the genitive case. ( or the της is necessary?)

I have noticed this as I speak Spanish and Italian. English has not got this type of clauses.

I reckon Greek structure would be the same as latin.

Many thanks
