Basic Greek Words and Phrases
Hello: (YAH-soo) The less formal way to say “Hi” would just be “Γεια” (Yah). If addressing a group, say “YAH-sas“.
Goodbye: (YAH-soo) Same as saying hello
Thank you: (eff-kha-ri-STOE)
Nice to meet you: (HA-ree-ka po-LEE)
Good morning: (kah-lee-MER-ah) You would say this greeting up until noon, and then for the rest of the day you can use (yah) as the standard greeting.
Good afternoon/evening: (kah-lee-SPER-ah)
Please/You’re welcome: (para-kah-LOE) In Greek, the word for “please” and “you’re welcome” is the same. It’s polite to say “para-kah-LOE” after asking for directions or the price of something. It can even be used to mean “I beg your pardon?” or “Huh?” when you’ve misunderstood or want someone to repeat something.
My name is… : (may LEH-neh)…
What is your name?: (pos-oh LEH-neh)
No: (OH-hee) It’s easy to mistakenly associate “neh” with “no” in English, and “oh-hee” with “okay” when in fact it’s just the opposite! An easy mnemonic is to remember that they’re actually the inverse of what you would initially think.
Excuse me/Sorry: (See-GHNO-mee) Say this to get someone’s attention, ask to pass by someone, or apologize if you’ve bumped into someone.
Where is the bathroom?: (Poh-EE-nay ee tua-LEH-tah)? “Poh-EE-nay” means “Where is?” so you can ask for help with locating something by saying this while pointing to a specific location in your guidebook or on a map.
Cheers!: (STIN-eh YAH-mas)
How much is it?: (POH-soh KAH-nee af-TOH)?
I don’t understand: (Then Kah-tah-lah-VEH-noh)
Oops!: (OH-pa) Also used frequently as an exclamation of enthusiasm or to show appreciation for music, dancing, food, and drinks.
