What is your name?

Practice sharing your name, and asking what a person’s name is.

The ending of the word σοι (you) and μοι (me) are pronounced in reconstructed historical koine more like su. It is common in seminaries to use an Erasmian pronunciation that does take care to pronounce the o and i.

Practice reading this out loud. Perhaps you can find a willing partner to practice this with you?

Self Evaluation

Being able to introduce yourself in Greek can be a fun activity with another person learning Biblical Greek. It is worthwhile taking some time to become comfortable with these sentences. This pattern will appear in future dialogues.

The words for you and me have multiple different endings. It is good to notice that there are different endings, we will explore the roles of the different endings in a future lesson.
