Hi, i have a question. I am trying to translate the following to greek. It is a question.

I want to say and ask the following; "What if you could live forever? Could you love forever?"

The "what if" is giving me a hard time. Is it ki an or ti kai av or ti an?

Would someone be able to translate that phrase for me in greek.

Hi!

The translation is:

"Τι κι αν μπορούσες να ζήσεις για πάντα;  Θα μπορούσες να αγαπάς για πάντα;"

"What if" = "τι και αν" or "τι κι αν"

"κι" is a variation of "και".  It is used in oral speech when the following word starts with a vowel.

Examples:

κι έπειτα έφυγα

και έπειτα έφυγα

και μετά έφυγα
