Attic -> Koine

Hi,

I plan to study Attic through a first semester intermediate level, for my BA requirements. I plan to finish Chase and Phillips then take a distance class on Attic next spring. However I am also thinking of a backup plan with Koine. Say I finish that year of Attic, but I cannot find that 201 class. Would I be able to take a 201 Koine class in the spring and pass (there are always ...

comparative between two members

Hi, I'm working through Chase and Phillips, Chapter 9.

Concerning the comparative adjective between two members: is this always with the neuter ending -ion? If not, when is the masculine and feminine -iwn used?

For example: demokratia kreitton turannidos. Democracy is stronger than tyranny.

Thanks.

Online Greek Texts

Some may be aware of this, but I found a website that has Bibles in various languages. Many appear to be in the public domain. They are in PDF, and there are some really great resources, for both NT & Septuagint, including some manuscripts.

Question on a sentence

Hi all,

I have a question about the usage of a0lla/ in a sentence. Here it is:

o9 de_ au0tourgo_v ou0k o0knei= a0ll 0 a0ei_ gewrgei= to_n klh=ron.

Here's my translation:

And the farmer does not shirk, but always cultivates his farm.

What happens to a0lla/ in that sentence? Is that some sort of contraction?

Thanks,
Deccius

BTW this sentence is from Athenaze.
