subjunctive in relative clause

Hi, everybody:
Smyth, 1786 says: "relative clauses requiring the subjunctive MUST have 'an'"; 2545c gives the impression that subjunctive without "an" in relative claues is used in indirect questions only; and yet the only two examples 2553 gives are WITHOUT "an" and are not questions.
What should one make of this?
Thanks in advance.

Is Anyone Else Studying Chase and Phillips?

Hello,

I'm in the 14th chapter of Chase and Phillips' A New Introduction to Greek. If anyone else is studying Greek through this book, I'd be grateful to be a partner in learning with that person. Let me know!

Regards,
Eric

Help! on new Greek texts discovered.

Hello friends,

I am a Spanish colleague, great lover of the classic languages. I am great enthusiastic of the Greek and Latin Paleography.

In recent date, we have discovered in a Archive of a particular collection manuscripts written in Greek, that apparently date from century X or XI AD.

Most of the text is a geographic description of the Mediterranean. The reading is very difficult by the so precarious and fragmented state of the codex, ...

Euripides, Xenophon, or something else?

Hey everyone! I would like to begin translating on my own through one of the Classical texts I own. Currently, I have a copy of Euripides Fables, Xenophon's Anabasis (books 1-4), the New Testament, as well as a copy of Harry Potter (in Greek). What would you guys recommend for someone with limited experience in Greek (limited being about studying independently for a year, going through one correspondence course), etc? Thanks for your help!!

John

i(/sqhmi, di/dwmi and ti/qhmi question

I understand that these are called reduplicated presents. (i(/sthmi from *si/sthmi which is a common thing. However, why are the presents reduplicated? (I know it happens in Latin, but Latin doesn't have reduplication as an active system like the Greek perfect system.) Are they fossilized forms from an earlier form of the language? Perfects that got snagged by the present tense? Something so bizzare I should just go shut up and memorize the future perfect?

Crito reading group

There will start a new greekstudy reading group on September 12th. We will read Plato's Crito in portions of appr. 300 words per week.
Since the dialogue alternates quite frequently between the speakers the text will surely be easy to read, in addition to that the text itself consists of round about 4500 words so this text seems to be a good start for everyone who wants to read his or her first proper Attic ...

Easier Way to Learn Accents

I am studying Koine using the Machen book. I also have the Mastronarde Attic Greek book. Though my professor says that it is not necessary for us to learn the accents, I would like to learn them correctly. I've heard of easier ways to memorize the rules for accents before (such as using analogies with music and the number of "beats" per syllable) but I do not know where I can find methods like this ...

Schoder & Horrigan's Homeric Greek

I will be starting a new Homeric Greek group in early September using the newly revised edition of "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek" by Schoder & Horrigan.

The first 60 lessons cover grammar and then the text proceeds to readings from Book 9 of the Odyssey.
