Hello!

what is the meaning of "τι τάχατες ζητἀει"?

I have searched the word "τάχα" alone but I didn't understand the expression in the context.

Thank you for explaining.

The words “τάχατες” and “τάχα” come from the same root and they are synonyms. When they are used in a sentence they express question, doubt and uncertainty. “τάχατες” is more informal than “τάχα”.

Τι τάχατες ζητάει;
Τι τάχα ζητάει;

Τι ζητάει;                

All these phrases mean the same thing :“What is he asking for?”
The first two of them show much more  doubt and uncertainty than the third.
