Για σου πάλι

If I say I am tired - είμαι κουρασμένος. That would be ok. However if I am with my wife and say she is tired I think I should say - είναι κουρασμένη  refering to her, Is this correct?

Does the word change with the sex of the person saying it or the one who is tired?

Thanks again

Γεια σου Ιάκοβε

You are correct, a male person will say (for himself) “είμαι κουρασμένος”, while when refering to another female, he will say “είναι κουρασμένη”.

Είμαι means I am.
Είναι means he/she/it is.

For a male person who is tired we say κουρασμένος.
For a female person who is tired we say κουρασμένη.

The word changes depending on the gender of the person who is tired. 

It is irrelevant who says it.  It could be be a male, a female, a text writen in stone or a computer with artificial inteligence.  It does not matter.
