Would someone like to take over this community and help it grow, or at least be active? I have too much on my plate to be thinking a lot about Greek at the moment, although I still love it :-)

*I have discontinued placing the definate article before the Greek vocabulary words because the endings that demonstrate their gender should be apparent by now. Masculine words end in: ας, ης, ος; feminine words: η, α; neuter words: ο, ι, μα.

you σε, εσένα ti
him τον, αυτόν lo
her την, αυτήν la
us μας, εμάς ci
you σας, εσάς vi
them τους, τις, τα la, le

*The first form given is the unemphatic, the second the emphatic. As the name suggests, the emphatic form is used to express a greater emphasis and occurs much less frequently than the unemphatic form. Ex.: "Πως σε λένε; Ποιός, εμένα;" -- "What is your name? Who, me?"

*The emphatic forms for him, her, and them also translate as "this" and "these"
