    Note: capital letters = the accent

    Elia Papakyriakou = ee-LEE-a PapakyriaKOU* or PapakyRIAkou (depending the declension and the meaning)

    Engomi = this word does not exist. Do you mean "sygnomi"? (sygNOmi* = I'm sorry)

    Nicosia = nee-co-SEE-ah

    17 = DE*-ka(10) + h*epTA (or hefTA) (7)

    g = sounds like "wh" in "why" or like "y" in "yes"

    d = sounds like "th" in "the" or "then"

    h = is not pronounce in Greek... think the word as "epta" (or "efta")

    Source(s): Ignore my negative vote. There is a stupid guy who follows me as you can see here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=Aj38Z... or here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AkJxW... for example. My answer is correct.
