Easier Way to Learn Accents

I am studying Koine using the Machen book. I also have the Mastronarde Attic Greek book. Though my professor says that it is not necessary for us to learn the accents, I would like to learn them correctly. I've heard of easier ways to memorize the rules for accents before (such as using analogies with music and the number of "beats" per syllable) but I do not know where I can find methods like this ...

Schoder & Horrigan's Homeric Greek

I will be starting a new Homeric Greek group in early September using the newly revised edition of "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek" by Schoder & Horrigan.

The first 60 lessons cover grammar and then the text proceeds to readings from Book 9 of the Odyssey.

Have you thought about doing aoidoi-like commentaries?

Hi, random question. Will's commentaries on aoidoi.org make reading more Greek so much easier than learning from a blank text.

There are lots of people here who have been studying for a while now, long enough to be able to add annotations and notes to texts they're reading, or to create learning materials e.g. vocab lists using text or illustrations &c...

have you thought about doing anything to put online for others like us to ...

GreekComp:SidgwickFirstGreekWriter

Hello! I just started using Sidgwick's 1st Greek writer, and I noticed something while checking the first exercise.

I tended to place genitives, e.g., "the shade of the trees," between the article and the noun. (the of the trees shade). But in the answer key, Sidwick writes nomitive article-noun-gen.art.-gen.noun. Is my solution incorrect or just different?

Thanks

Determination of Dialect

So, I was messing around in the Agora, trying to decipher people's writings when it dawned upon me I have no idea how to tell different greek dialects apart.

Does anyone have some pointers I could use to determine at a glance what particular dialect (Epic, Attic, Koine) was used to write a greek text? (Like case endings, certain conjugations, etc).

Thanks.

beginner grammar question

xai/rete,

I'm having trouble translating this sentence:

o9/ te Dikaio/poliv kai_ o0 dou=lov prosxwpou=i kai_ ble/pousi pro_v to_ a0/rotron.

translation: Both Dicaeopolis and the slave approach (?) and they see to the plow(?).

I don't understand the verb prosxwpou=i. Is this verb the equivalent of the Latin appropinquare? I thought that it had to be followed by a dative. And in the second clause I don't understand the use of the preposition pro_v.

Thanks in ...
