Modern Greek/Lesson 7b
The days of the week
Several of the days of the week have names related to numbers. Except for Σαββατο, Saturday, which is neuter, they are all feminine.
|Κυριακή (Lord's day)||Sunday|
|Δευτέρα (Second day)||Monday|
|Τρίτη (Third day)||Tuesday|
|Τετάρτη (Fourth day)||Wednesday|
|Πέμπτη (Fifth day)||Thursday|
|η μέρα||the day|
|χτες (alt.sp. χθες)||yesterday|
Saying what day it is
This is the way I would assume that it would be said. Is capitalising standard? Is the form of my question right? Is it idiomatic?
|Είναι Παρασκευή.||It is Friday.|
|Σήμερα είναι τετάρτη.||Today is wednesday.|
|Τι η μέρα είναι?||What day is it?|
