20 questions in ancient Greek

The rules of 20 questions (aka animal, vegetable or mineral) are that someone things of an object/person/plant and the rest ask questions about it. The person having thought of the object answers yes or no. Gradually the questioners narrow down things until they are able to guess.

So how about trying it in Ancient Greek? Perhaps to start with it would be a good idea to narrow it down to a person from Ancient Greek ...

Let's draw something

http://www.twiddla.com/1920018

Tell me what I should create or draw. In Greek. I will ask you questions if I don't understand you. In Greek.

Difficulty: I can't draw!

Why am I doing this? I have this crazy theory that communicating in order do or create something is a great language learning activity.

Dies Christi natalis / Ἡ τοῦ Χριστοῦ γέννησις

In Italiam volaturus opto omnibus vobis felicem Christi diem natalem!

Πτησόμενος εἰς τὴν Ἰταλίαν εὔχομαι πᾶσιν ὑμῖν καλὴν γέννησιν τοῦ Χριστοῦ.


πῶς ἐφεξὴς τὰ εὐαγγέλια ἐγράψαντο;

πῶς ἐφεξὴς τὰ εὐαγγέλια ἐγράψαντο; πρώτον κατὰ Μάρκον καὶ δεύτερον κατὰ Ματθαῖον καὶ τρίτον κατὰ Λουκὰν καὶ κατὰ Ἰωάννην τάταρον; ἤ οὔχ οὕτω ἐφεξης;

ἐγνότην ὁ Ματθαῖον τὸν βιβλίον κατὰ Μάρκον; οὐκ ἐγνότην ὅς κατὰ Λουκὰν; ἀλλὰ δὴ πότερον πείθῃ οὕτους τοῦ Q λαλεῖν;


Οἰνοπώλιον

τὰ οἶνα τῶν Ἑλλήνων σεβαιόντων, ἄμμες αὐτῶν γλῶτταν εἰπόντες ἐκλέγωμεν φιλίαν τῶν οἴνων.

τὸ οἶνον τοῦ ὀρύζου ἐκ Ζωγγόϝος (...China; please use Mycenaean pronunciation /dj/ for Z) μάλιστα φιλῶ.

συμπάσχετε περὶ φίλτατα οἶνα ὑμμέων, πρὶν οἱ γέροντες ταῦτα κλέψουσιν!

Share your favourite wines, before the old men in Hansen & Quinn steal them!

De punctuatione Graeca et Latina

Quomodo oportet in Graecis Latinisque textis verba distinguere, ubi commata scribere? Certe, in temporibus antiquis nulla punctuatio erat, nunc autem non possumus ab verborum interpunctis abstinere. Alicubi legi quod Latine scribentes fere regulas punctuationis eorum linguarum natalium tenent. Num regulae certae non sunt? Nullus consensus?

Ebola+quarantine (Ancient Greek)

τὸ χρῆσθαί τοῖς θεραπεύουσι νοστοῦσιν ἐκ μαχῆς ἀντὶ Εβολας ἐν Λιβύῃ ὡς κακουργοῖς ἐστί αἰσχρόν. οἱ πλήν ὑπὲρ καιρόν θερμασίας οὑ εστι κίνδυνος.
νομίζω τοὺς ῥήτορας τοὺς τοὺς θεραπεύουντας κατακλείοντας μάτην ἄνευ τιμῆς εἶναι.

Περὶ τοῦ Πάπου Φραγκίσκου

Τί ὑμῖν δοκεῖ, φίλοι, περὶ τοῦ Πάπου Φραγκίσκου; Οἱ μὲν γὰρ φιλοῦσι τοῦτον τὸν Πάπαν ταπεινὸς ὄντα καὶ εὐήθης, οἱ δὲ ἐλέγχουσιν αὐτὸν περὶ τοῦ μὴ τηρεῖν τὰ παραδεδομένα τῆς ἐκκλησίας. Καὶ νῦν εἶπεν ὁ Φραγκίσκος ὅτι ἡ Ῥωμαϊκὴ γλῶσσα οὐκέτι ἔσται ἡ τοῦ τῶν καθολικῶν ἐπισκόπων συνόδου.

Οἱ γελοῖοι λόγοι ἤγουν narratiuncula jocosa

Γράφωμεν ὦδε, ὦ ἄνδρες, γελοίους λόγους ἑλληνιστὶ ἢ ῥωμαϊστί. Οὐ μέντοι πάντοτε συνίημι τὴν ῥωμαϊκὴν γλῶσσαν, διὰ τοῦτο ἐνίοτε αἰτήσω τοὺς ῥωμαϊκῶς γράφοντας ἑρμηνεῦσαι τι. Τοίνυν βούλομαι τὸν πρῶτον λόγον γρᾶψαι ὃν ἐγίνωσκον οἱ Αἰγύπτιοι ἔτι πρὸ τοῦ Χριστοῦ.

Πῶς δύναταί τις τρέψαι τὸν ἀνιαθέντα Φαραώ; Χρὴ εἰς τὸν Νεῖλον πέμψαι πλοῖον παρθένους ἔχον περισταλείσας δικτύοις ἀντὶ ἱματίων· τότε ὁ Φαραὼ άμέλει ἐλεύσεται ἀλιεύειν.

Ἄρα συνίετε τοῦτο;
