“Again” in Greek

In Greek, “Again” is written using the Latin script as:


Using the Greek alphabet, it is written as:


(Editor’s note: In Greek, in many statements (but not all), when someone wishes to communicate an expression more quickly (and at times in more informal settings), conventionally, the speaker can combine Ksana / Ξανά, as a prefix, with the operative verb. For example, in Statement #1 below, Ksana / Ξανά can modify the verb peis / πεις and become Ksanapeis / ξαναπείς. But in Statement #5, this Greek linguistic feature never occurs on the verb “forgot”, so in such a statement, Ksana / Ξανά would remain as an individual word.)
