Question to those who use(d)...


In a couple of months or so, I will start to learn greek, towards wich end I must buy some books right now, in hope that I might have received them by then, since my country's mail system is a unfunny joke responsible for many tragedies that would make the greek writers envy.

HTML editor (person, not program) needed

User perispomenon has typed up the whole of the grammar section of Pharr's Homeric Greek textbook. Now it needs to be turned into HTML. The syntax section is already done (Syntax), but now we need help with the morphology sections.

In latin the Albative takes all of the cases dealing with time when, place from which, et cetera. In greek the same concepts take the dative. Why? If (and I am assuming here) the dative in greek ...
