Kallisti

I know absolutely nothing about Greek except for the alphabet and some English roots, but I am curious, is 'kallisti' the dative superlative of the word for 'fair' (i.e. 'to the fairest')?

Paired aspirated consonants

It’s my understanding that when an aspirateable consonant (i.e. p, t, or k) is placed before an aspirated consonant, both consonants must be aspirated. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.)
