Personal pronouns

Modern Greek has two different types of personal pronouns:

  • A. the strong type
  • B. the weak type

Personal pronouns are used to denote the three grammatical persons:  

  • 1. the first person, singular and plural
  • 2. the second person, singular and plural
  • 3. the third person, singular and plural, masculine, feminine and neuter

The strong type

Singular - Ενικός Αριθμός

2nd    μού/μου        σού/σου  αυτούαυτήςαυτού
4th    εμένα/με      εσένα/σε  αυτόναυτήναυτό

2nd    μάς/μας      σάς/σας    αυτώναυτώναυτών
4th    εμάς/μας      εσάς/σας    αυτούςαυτέςαυτά

In MG the personal pronouns are omitted in most of the circumstances. The verb endings clarify that the subject has been put in the first, second or third person singular or plural:

«(εγώ) γράφω», «(εσύ) γράφεις» -  I write, you write

The weak type

2nd    μας      σας    τουςτουςτους

The weak form of the personal pronouns is used more often than the strong form. They have one syllable without accent and are used when nothing has to be emphasized

Agia Anna Beach

Agia Anna a beautiful beach, located 7 km from Chora, can be reached by bus. Actually it is a group of sandy beaches beginning with Agios Prokopios, interrupted by a small fishing port and some rock formations, following by the long and sandy beach of Agia Anna, with numerous bays which separate it into diverse sections. Some of the bays have little cafes literally on the sand. The beach with its gorgeous soft, sand and the crystalline turquoise water is a very idyllic place. 
There is also a nudist bay just behind a group of rocks and the Agia Anna's church. Hidden from the road by dunes and trees, this area is really excellent for naturists.
The combination of beautiful beaches and numerous fish restaurants, taverns, bars, and cafes, as well as the many hotels, studios and rooms for rent, makes Agia Anna one of the liveliest parts of Naxos. It became an extremely popular destination for visitors during the summer.
