what is a vowel?

i mean, in general.

are vowels distinguished from consonants on purely acoustic (phonetic?) grounds? i think this would imply that the same sounds would be considered vowels in any language. or, instead of the intrinsic acoustic properties of the sound, is it a function of how those sounds are articulated physiologically (realizing, of course, that there could be a close connection between the manner of articulation & the nature of the sound that results)? or, ...

Anyone in Greece now?

Kalimera sas! I am a new registrant at this site and was wondering if anyone who is currently learning the Greek language is in Greece now?

Why is this?

I started all over with ancient Greek, motivated and all, and notice that my attention dwindles when I have to get into the -μι verbs, the medium and passive.

That's exactly where my interest faded in high school! Why is that? Is it over-complication, saturation? It just seems so typical that I waver at just the same point as (ehum) 25 years ago.
