Best Attic Greek Grammar?

Hi - I am currently working in Homeric Greek, but plan to jump into Attic Greek in the fall of 2007 after I have finished Pharr's book. I am building a library of Attic Greek books, and I am thinking Greek Grammar by Herbert Weir Smyth and Gordon M. Messing (ISBN: 0674362500) is the way to go.

Fonts

The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek

Hi.

Just so everyone knows, Rijksbaron's The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek: An Introduction, 3rd edition, is available for pre-order on Amazon. The price---$13.60---is very reasonable.

I also pre-ordered Eleanor Dickey's Ancient Greek Scholarship: A Guide to Finding, Reading, and Understanding Scholia, Commentaries, Lexica, and Grammatical Treatises: From Their Beginnings... I can't wait for this one to arrive!

Pronounciation of Certain Consonants, Vowels, and Dipthongs

The textbook I am using distinguishes between short and long vowels, but it does not say how those vowels are pronounced. For example. it distinguishes how a short α versus a long α would be notated, but not how each would be pronounced. I need some help with most all of the vowels ...

Learning greek verbs while using the Athenaze book for class

I am presently taking a class in Ancient Greek that uses the Athenaze book. I am finding that the verbs that are listed at the beginning of each chapter are in the first person singular. What is the proper way to study these verbs as I run into them? To study the principal parts? or to be able to conjugate the verb in all 3 voices and all the tenses? or learn both! I want ...
