Listening to Greek

Hi guys, and Happy New Year.

I have been studying Pharr's Homeric Greek for a little while. I realized that I own Zondervan's New Testament Greek Vocabulary and I dusted it off and opened it up. It seems to have a lot of words and phrases voiced on the cd with the words printed in an accompany booklet.

Il. 1.564

Code: Select all
ei) d' ou(/tw tou=t' e)sti\n e)moi\ me/llei** fi/lon ei)=nai:

I understand how "moi" is functioning if this is the typical usage of "philon moi" as "pleasing to me,"which is a possibility Benner admits, but he praefers taking "philon" here to mean "one's own." The translation in his commentary reads thus: "'Suppose this is as you say, 'tis my own affair, I presume.'" How is "moi" functioning if "philon" in this context means "one's own"?

Is there anywhere online where a printable summary of verb forms can be obtained?

I don't like the way that the verb chart in Athenaze looks (not to mention ...

A little help with stems

Hello people,

A Merry Christmas to you all! I'm doing a College 101 course in Greek and we're using Hillard and Botting and Abbot and Mansfield. At the moment, we're doing comparatives. My problem is with αληθης type adjectives. According to Abbot and Mansfield (p.50), the stem of αληθης is αληθες. Huh? Unless I am very much mistaken αληθης is an adjective of the ευγενης type the genitive of which is ευγενους . Now since ...
