Beginner Question

Hi everyone,

This is my first post in the Greek forum. I just started studying Greek. I've been studing Latin for a year. Anyways, I'm presently learning the alphabet and I came upon Nu and Upsilon. I am very confused by the second form of these two characters; they look identical to me. How do I discern Nu from Upsilon?

Thanks,
Deccius

new Biblical Greek learning tool

I have developed an interactive, web-based Greek learning tool for learning paradigms and vocabulary in which the student reads stories which can be manipulated into dozens of variations. My goal is to make the learning of Greek morphology easier without having to rely on the rote memorization of paradigms. So far I have stories which focus on 2nd declension masculine nouns but also includes some other vocabulary due to the nature of the manipulation of ...

Hyphenation Problem

Hi all,

I've gotten well underway with editing Greek texts in Word.

However, I have a problem: hyphenation.

When I copy a text from Perseus for example and paste it into Word, the hyphenation seems at best... random. And there are no hyphens!

Word is set to "no hyphenation" - it is as if it doesn't recognize that the characters make up words.

Any advice would be much appreciated. ...

Importing and formatting Greek in Word

Hi,

The SP Ionic and other tools work really well on my system.

Sometimes I find Greek texts on the internet and import them to Word.

My question is: what possible fonts can I use?

There are tons of fancy one for the Latin alphabet but it seems to be rather limited for the Greek alphabet.

Times New Roman and Palatino Linotype look fine, but most other fonts look strange or don't have the special ...

Satan sweating - apt translation & grammar poblems

Hello.

(Please do remember English is not my native language. Dutch is.)

My class has received an assignment from our professor of Greek (for the course Encyclopedia of Classical Philology actually).
We are supposed to critically examine a few lines of text he has given us, and we have to explain why a/certain word(s) are false, or correct.

The text is Oecumenius' Commentarius in Apocalypsin. My line is 157,13-16 (VIII,62-65). It reads:
polla\ ga/r fasi ...

An idea

Here is an idea. There seems to be several people present that participate in the board and have a good deal of knowledge if not a great deal of knowledge concerning Greek without a lack of enthusiasm, too.

Why not make a textbook that would be ideal to begin with and advance through. This textbook could be make online collectively.

Aoidoi.org: Pindar's Olympian 1

This Aoidoi commentary - Olympian 1 - differs from the usual commentaries in several ways.

First, it is written by chad, not me (though I did some editing).

Second, it's pretty large - 17 pages of PDF covering a 116-line poem.

Third, chad also has scanned the entire poem, and long and short marks float above the lines of the poem.

Fourth, below each strophe and epode is the same text in a less Pindaric ...
