The Syntax and Semantics of the Verb in Classical Greek


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

I have just started to learn greek and was wondering about the pronounciations of some letters. First, I will ask about vowels. 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 ...

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 ...

Learning with Thrasymachus

Salvete! (is it xairete in Greek?)

I'm introducing myself as a new student of Greek. Yesterday I received my copy of "Thrasymachus" by Peckett and Munday after waiting for months to get it. The method is somewhat like Lingua Latina, that is, you learn by reading rather than by analizing. Sadly, everything else is pretty much like a traditional English-Greek textbook. Someone should really translate Lingua Latina into Greek. Also, this ancient language is a ...

How Different are all the Dialects?

I was just wondering how different all the Greek dialects truly are. Do they differ substantially from one another (some fundamental grammar concepts are completely different) or is it mostly just slight variations in wording and tone? Is it like an English person trying to read Scots, or is it more like the difference between newspaper English and literary English? How much passive knowledge of the other dialects do you get if you learn one? ...
