Plurality in translation

Hey everyone, my question is when translating sentences into Greek, with all the different plural cases, when do you use the plural and when do you not? For example, one sentence I have to translate is "But the slave says, "It is not possible to carry so many stones out of the field. So you help!" Now, "stones" of course is translated into the plural acc. b/c it's the DO. But, would you translate "out ...

Xenophon's Greek

Part of my exam in the summer involves an unseen from anywhere in Xenophon's works. Obviously this means that we are meant to learn all that we can about Xenophon in the meantime.

Does anyone know where to start to learn about typical features of Xenophon's greek? (apart from reading loads of Xenophon, which I'm doing already)

thanks

e^ d' he^

Hi everybody:
I' interested in the literal meaning of the locution in the subj., as found, e.g. in Plato, _Symp._ 206 a3, 205 c4.
The meaning is not a problem (translations are available), but the exact power of the "he^" here (as accented) puzzles me. None of its meanings that I could find in the dictionaries seems to fit.
Many thanks for any suggestions.

Aoidoi - Haiku

After looking around on Will's website for a while I saw this haiku page. It seemed really interesting and I thought I'd give it a shot. The problem is I'm not too sure on my scansion. Since nothing teaches a lesson like public ridicule I thought I'd just post what I've come up with and let you guys walz over me. I've attempted to stick to this meter:

H&Q's edition, please help.

Hello,

Not rendering the price difference, was it wise ordering H&Q's
Greek: An Intensive Course, hard cover, second edition, 1992,
in place of the revised paperback edition of 1995?

I could still change my order, so please advise.

Done the grammar, now what?

I would appreciate any recommendations the veterans of the forum may offer on beginner texts in Attic to those who've completed a grammar book (I am working through Mastronarde).

I am looking for specific commentaries. Particularly ones like Pharr's Aeneid which are very convinient, displaying text, vocabulary, and commentary on the same page. Otherwise, any helpful text & commentary for the beginner will be fine.

Thank you.
