The following are very common:
τε*… καί both…… and
* This comes second word in a phrase, after the first (or only) word referring to the first of the two items being joined:
ὁ τέ δοῦλος καί ὁ ξένος
Βoth the slave and the stranger
In case the first item consists of just one word, τε and καί end up next to each other:
δοῦλος τέ καί ξένος
Βoth a slave and a stranger
Translate into English
- ὁ τέ ξένος καί ὁ ἀγγελος σύμμαχοι εἰσιν.
- ὁ στρατός οὐ μένει ἀλλά φεύγει.
- διδάσκω και μανθάνω
