hello all. I have to write a short explanation of Κλεος for my survey of classical literature class. We're reading the Odyssey (in translation.

Learning Tenses

Hi-I've belatedly realized that, in reading Greek, it isn't necessary to worry about all the forms of the new verbs you encounter, since you probably won't see them.
