Hello All


Just thought I would say "hi" as I am sure I am going to be asking questions soon. I have finally decided to take the step of actually starting Greek. Trying to do it on my own as my work schedule is too erratic to even think about a class (lawyer). Going with Pharr.

Participles: Modal Solidarity

An interesting post appeared on the high-strung classics-l list (start of thread) introducing the term modal solidarity, which I have not encountered before. Worth a look.
