Year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses last rev.?

Hi,

Would anyone know the year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb last revision? I have found a copy based on the 1889 edition. Would that year be the last revision year?

Thank you.

Oedipus help

Hopefully someone with a knowledge of ancient Greek can answer my question. In the exodos of the Sophocles' play Oedipus Rex, the translation says:
From one to another of us he went, begging a sword,
Hunting his wife who was not his wife

Does the original greek word for hunting refer to seeking or hunting with intent to kill?

Or even just some of the Greek Fathers and early writings without the Greek NT. I am looking for these in Greek. And if there are textual variants for them that would even be that much greater! Thanks! John Litteral ...

quick help

I'll like a translation into old Greek of the following phrase:

"Empty Coppery Thoughts"

My try:

Kainai Xalkinai Ideai

Distinguishing modern and ancient Greek

In my favorite second-hand bookstore here in Melbourne they have a small foreign language section. The owners of the store barely speak English let alone any other language. (oi Austrilioi kai oi barbaroi)

In this section today I discovered an old book which is undoubtedly Greek, I think it is an abstract of the new testament. I'm rather keen on buying ancient Greek books but I'm concerned it might be modern greek. Is there any ...

UMEIN

I have run upon a reading in manuscript P in Galatians. A plural personal pronoun that is UMEIN is in that manscript. Is that even a Greek word? Or is that a mispelled word? Other variants are UMIN and UMAS.

Greek accent

I have a question about greek accent :

The accent of any word: Is it natural (being on a certain syllable like in Russian) or is it on a certain part of the word (like in a stem like in German) or is there any special rule (like in Latin or Spanish) ?

I understood the rules of accent putting and changes by declincion etc., but asked myself how to determine the accent finally in ...
