There are mistakes in this that need to be pointed out.

Watch - το ρολόι - it's not "to roli", it's "to roloi" and it is pronounced "toh roh-LOH-ee". I realize that the "o+i" in Greek makes the EE sound, but the accent mark is over the o so it tells you to pronounce the o and ι separately.

Clock - it's not "το ρολό" it's "το ρολόι" which is the exact same word as "watch". το ρολό means "roll" like a bread roll

If you pronounce either of these words as "roli" then you will not be understood, trust me. Please ignore spelling in the sentences in this that have the word spelled incorrectly
