Nouns

Nouns are the most used words in Greek. They consist of about 35% of part of speech in term of usage. They can help describe living creatures, objects, places, actions, qualities, states of existence, or ideas.

Below is a list of some nouns that you might come across or use very often. That includes some singular and plural forms, as well as feminine and masculine forms. The table contains 3 columns (English, Greek, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation.
