    No is not "o chi"!

    Thank you is not "icharisto"!

    There's no "ch" in Greek!

    Should be transliterated as is: kh

    okhi[stress on the i]

    efkharisto[stress on the o]

    Γειά is pronounced "ya" [same like saying "yes" in German], not "jia"!

    Source(s): Learned this from a Greek man who has passed away.
