movable nu on ἔχουσι?

ἔχω I have ἔχομεν we have
ἔχεις you have ἔχετε you have
ἔχεi he has ἔχουσι they have

I have a quick question. I note the above from my Greek grammar textbook. Does the third person plural have a movable nu? It doesn't say here whereas elsewhere the textbook usually points it out in brackets so I thought I should check

Yes, it has a movable nu. Most third person plural active indicatives will.
