English-to-Greek Motto Translation Question

I'm working on trying to translate the motto for my fraternity chapter into Classical Greek for our crest, but I'm having issues considering that I've only been trained formally in Latin :lol:

I'm hoping for a literal translation, and I've spoken with a friend but she can't seem to figure out a translation for the word "Loyalty" and doesn't have a G-E dictionary. Anybody want to give ...

Poll: The importance of pronunciation for beginners.

I am a new student of Ancient Greek. I am interested in reading poetry as well as prose in this language. I am bewildered though by the complex discussions of pronunciation and linguistic evidence that seem to be the norm regarding the pronunciation of it. So my question is, as interesting and worthwile as these discussions may be, how valuable is it for me to actually try to understand this before proceeding to more grammatical ...

Best Attic Greek Grammar?

Hi - I am currently working in Homeric Greek, but plan to jump into Attic Greek in the fall of 2007 after I have finished Pharr's book. I am building a library of Attic Greek books, and I am thinking Greek Grammar by Herbert Weir Smyth and Gordon M. Messing (ISBN: 0674362500) is the way to go.

Does anyone think there is a better grammar out there that is still in print? I simply want ...

Fonts

Sorry to ask this question again but I am having trouble with seeing greek properly in IE. Now, I have read the forum back for the last 2 years and have seen that there was some change where people tried to go to SPIonic but somehow that didn't really work out it seems. I can't see SPIonic when there are tags in the post like is covered repeatedly before. I have downloaded SPionic, I have ...

The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek

Hi.

Just so everyone knows, Rijksbaron's The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek: An Introduction, 3rd edition, is available for pre-order on Amazon. The price---$13.60---is very reasonable.

I also pre-ordered Eleanor Dickey's Ancient Greek Scholarship: A Guide to Finding, Reading, and Understanding Scholia, Commentaries, Lexica, and Grammatical Treatises: From Their Beginnings... I can't wait for this one to arrive!

Pronounciation of Certain Consonants, Vowels, and Dipthongs

I have just started to learn greek and was wondering about the pronounciations of some letters. First, I will ask about vowels. The textbook I am using distinguishes between short and long vowels, but it does not say how those vowels are pronounced. For example. it distinguishes how a short α versus a long α would be notated, but not how each would be pronounced. I need some help with most all of the vowels ...

Learning greek verbs while using the Athenaze book for class

I am presently taking a class in Ancient Greek that uses the Athenaze book. I am finding that the verbs that are listed at the beginning of each chapter are in the first person singular. What is the proper way to study these verbs as I run into them? To study the principal parts? or to be able to conjugate the verb in all 3 voices and all the tenses? or learn both! I want ...
