Reading A Greek Boy At Home

I have been reading Rouse's "A Greek Boy At Home" for quite a while now, and as much as I try to get past the first lessons quickly, I can't seem to do it. The main problem is with vocabulary, which cannot be deduced (for the most part) from the context, and the accompanying glossary apparently omits several key words. It can get very, very frustrating, but I refuse to let this book go. To ...

"Greek Prose Reading Course"

εἰμί third person plural

The other day, my greek professor asked me on my opinion of the historial roots of the third person plural of εἰμί, εἰσί.

What at first occured to me was that is was formed by the stem *es and the personal ending -nti, i.e. *esnti, which then lost the s in the position before the n, ti becomes si, *ensi loses the n and becomes eisi because of compensatory lengthening. (I don't know about the ...

Adverbs of place with δε?

Good afternoon, all. :)

Just a quick question. I had until now thought that I could substitute te pros+acc idea by adding the δε particle to words, as in οικαδε or Αθεναζε (to conjure memorized examples), but I was told today that those expressions are only themselves true, given that they cristalized in that way, and thus remained in use, but that it is generally impossible to ...
