  1. (transitive) To deceive or trick.

Today we have a very special Word of the Day—in Greek!

Today’s word (phrase) of the day is “Thank you."

Here’s the pronunciation using the International Phonetic Alphabet: /efxaɾisˈto/

And here’s a phonetic rendition using our own Latin alphabet: eff-hah-rees-TOH

Finally, what you’ve been waiting for. I present to you the phrase “Thank you” in Greek:

If you want to hear the word, simply highlight it right here—ευχαριστώ—then click on Speech, then click on Start Speaking, like so:

You may be prompted to download a Greek voice; it’s a small file that should download fairly quickly.
