Resource

Hi, all.

I've found a resource that doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere on this site (but maybe I missed it). It's an online tool for building word lists for either Latin or Greek. One nice feature: it allows you to generate word lists for particular books, and even to filter word lists based on your level or other criteria. Click the "About" link to view a short video which demonstrates what you can do ...

Does δόρυ θηγέμεναι imply spears with tips?

LSJ θήγω wrote:δόρυ θηξάσθω let him whet his spear, Il.2.382

Am I justifed in thinking that θηγέμεναι (= prose ἀκονᾶν) implies the spear was tipped with a metal tip rather than just being plain wood?

I suspect that ἀποξύνειν (or ἐξαποξύνειν) would be used for bringing a piece of wood to a point.

Any help understanding οἷός τε would be appreciated...

Goodwin (§1024) states that Attic οἷός τε is probably τoιούτος οἷός τε by ellipsis. Is that a plausible explanation, and how does such an explanation actually explain it?

Do the other dialects use a spelt out τoιούτος οἷός τε with a similar meaning?

University of Texas Summer Intensive Greek Course

Hello Everyone,

Has anyone here ever attended this course, or know anything about its quality? Does anyone know how much it costs? While I do plan to contact the program directly to find out the cost, I was interested in knowing if anyone has any experience with it or has heard anything about it. From what I understand, the course meets five hours a day for ten weeks, and successful course completion results in 12 ...

How do you type the εἱ with a hat on a mac?

I've been able to find most of the shortcuts on my mac keyboard, but this one I have not yet found, that is the one that distinguishes between εἱ and εἱ?

I did scan through some of the other posts here and I could see some PC shortcuts, but not Mac.

Greek New Testament Interlinears

I recently gave a friend this advice. Maybe others have better suggestions?

For a printed interlinear, the most useful that I know of is produced by Jehovah's Witnesses. It's called the "Kingdom Interlinear" and you should be able to order a copy for free if you are willing to ask one of the people standing next to the displays at BART stops, etc. They stick "Jehovah" in for κυρίος in the running English translation -- ...

Translation Buddhist phrase

Hello guys,

I'm looking for a translation of the following Buddhist dictum into Ancient Greek (preferably Attic Greek, but I'd also very much like to see other suggestions): 'Body like the mountain, heart like the ocean, mind like the sky.' I have some ideas of my own, but I'm not confident enough of my Greek prose composition skills. Thanks for your response!

All best, Δ.

Hi, I'm having trouble with the second half of this sentence. Why is τασ ψυχας in the accusative, and what does the phrase mean?

Thanks,
