Intensive iota

Postby antonyclassicallatin » Sun Oct 06, 2013 1:43 am

I came across the intensive iota on words like τουτὶ or τουτονὶ. First what does this mean and second what are the rules for this iota usage. I can't seem to find it anywhere. Reading Greek JACT course has it in the text but does not explain it. example:

τί δὲ τουτὶ τὸ πρᾶγμα;

MEANS: "What is THIS matter?"

How is this declined?

χάριν σοι
