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.

which of the two nouns in the nominative is the subject

Hi, everybody:

I am wondering whether there are any *formal* criteria for answering the question stated for constructions like:
"Kai phrone^sis men estin, he^ schesis· ktl."?

Is my understanding correct that:

1. *if not for the comma*, the only possible subject here would be "schesis", since it is the only noun with the article;

2. as the phrase stands (i.e. with the comma), the only possible subject is "phrone^sis"?

3. If so, how does it ...
