Hi all, I have heard many a time that there isn't much in the way of sequence of tenses in Modern Greek in comparison to say, French or English... I came across this sentence tonight and it struck me that I would have said "ήταν" having used πιστεύω in the Imperfect. Anyway, is the following grammatically correct / acceptable? Would sequencing tenses as mentioned above be wrong in Greek? This is something I've always been puzzled by in Greek. Anyway, the example I found: Πώς πικραινότανε τώρα ο Γιώργος! Πίστευε πως είναι χαμένος. Πικρά δάκρυα κυλούσαν από τα μάτια του... Thanks in advance! I look forward to the answers to this φλέγον ζήτημα of mine (seriously it's been years now haha)!
