Quick Greek question;

If I say

Έk πτωχος γίγνεται χρηστον.

My chrèston should be accusative, right?

Sorry about the lack of accents, I had to write that using the Google Translation pen, and it was too much of a hassle to take the time and add them.

>>7679883
You can install the Greek language pack on Windows and use the virtual keyboard senpai.

thanks family

>>7679876

What is the subject of the sentence?
>>
>>7679913
beggar
>>
>>7679876
I think it should be nominative because it is a linking verb. Not sure.
You should also know that ek goes with the genitive, so it should be ptochou
>>
>>7679876
Not sure what you're trying to say but the last word is the subject, therefore in the nominative case. Εk requires the genitive, as my esteemed colleague >>7680050
was kind enough to point.
>>
>>7679876

How about this, OP: What is it, in English, that you're trying to say in Greek?
While we're at it, what version of Greek are you aiming for?
>>
>>7680050
Can confirm γιγνομαι takes a predicate nominative
