H & Q pg. 37 Unit 1 II.1-4/good poetry book

I've been working through the H & Q and would just like to make sure I've got things straight by checking these four English-Greek translations:

1. The god educates the man.

o( qeo\j tou\j a)nqrw/pouj paideu/ei.

2. The man sends Homer's brother to the market.

o( a)/nqrwpoj to\n adelfo\n to\n tou= (Omh/rou ei)j th\n a)gora\n pe/mpei.

3. Man, Homer's brother sends to the gods a gift from the island.

Help a Latin-Beginner out !!

I just started learning Greek and have a year of Latin(with an equivalent of 3 years Latin grammar instruction).

My "Greek: an intensive course" just came in yesterday. If you're looking for a Greek learning buddy or some Latin help, I'd be glad to join you.

I'm not from NZ though. I'm over in Texas, USA.

Hi All,

I've been thinking about it for some time now and have come to the firm conclusion that the world needs...yes, you guessed it, a word game in ancient greek.

Okay I'm not taking Greek next year after all

I'm very sad about this because I've been waiting a long time to take this class but I'm trying to be optimistic.

What are your thoughts about independent study? I'm going to have a hectic schedule during school but I really want to learn Greek.

I have a problem here...

Hi,

Does anybody know what does this mean: "There are indeed a few authorities who deny Greek tense any temporal force" or where can I find out?

Thanks a lot

Kallisti

I know absolutely nothing about Greek except for the alphabet and some English roots, but I am curious, is 'kallisti' the dative superlative of the word for 'fair' (i.e. 'to the fairest')?

Paired aspirated consonants

It’s my understanding that when an aspirateable consonant (i.e. p, t, or k) is placed before an aspirated consonant, both consonants must be aspirated. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.)
i.e. i)xqu&j

Pronouncing two aspirated consonants back-to-back sounds strange. Does anyone know how xq, fq, etc. are supposed to be pronounced?

nevermind...

Aren't definite and indefinite articles just "the, a, etc."? That's what I got from what I'm studying. I guess I didn't know what they were because they're implied in Latin, not a separate word. :oops: :oops: :oops: right?

Dialects

salvete!
I simply cannot read any lengthy PDF document, so I'm trying to find a good Greek grammar at the local bookstores, but am curious, what are the different dialects and what are their major differences?

I've heard of homeric, attic, and new testament Greek. Would one, for example, be able to understand the New Testament (with access to a dictionary) after learning Attic grammar?

Also, I've heard lots of good things about Mastronarde's Introduction ...
