DOCK is related to the Greek Δοχή (doche)

The word DOCK (the area of water between two piers or alongside a pier that receives a ship for loading, unloading, or repairs; a pier, a wharf) is related to the Greek word Δοχή (doche; a place for receiving or holding the ships) from the verb Δέχομαι (dechome; to receive, to contain).

I Want to Read Homeric Greek

Hello, I have been making what I feel is a great deal of progress in Latin and have decided to learn Greek, and I thought Homeric Greek would be the logical place to start. The problem is I know nothing about Greek, even the alphabet.

Greek (and Latin) Grammarians

I've been intrigued by the idea or the Orthe Ptsosis/casus rectus vs. the oblique or plagal forms, ever since I first encountered that disticntion in the Humez book on Latin.

Learning accents in Ancient Greek

Hi,

How much effort should one put toward learning accents in Attic Greek as a beginner? (The last time I studied Greek I bypassed them.) I have a book called A New Short Guide to the Accentuation of Ancient Greek, but it seems a bit advanced despite its promise of brevity!

Most difficult text

I'd really like to know from you who you think is the hardest writer, why and which text in particular :D .

Thanks a lot,
GreekGeek2

P.s. The hardest text in my opinion is the Frogs of Aristophanes. Translating it and it takes me ages because of all the strange words and grammatical difficulties!
