Which one is corect?  I always used "πεινούσα", but recently I came across the later form.

The verb πεινάω= I am hungry (and all verbs of the same group) are conjugated in this way in Past Continuous (Παρατατικός):

πεινούσα
πεινούσες
πεινούσε
πεινούσαμε
πεινούσατε
πεινούσαν

There is also another way to conjugate it, which is more oral and informal:

πείναγα
πείναγες
πείναγε
πεινάγαμε
πεινάγατε
πείναγαν

Τhe second conjugation is more common in south Greece than in north.
