We are starting a new beginners' Greek group

To One And All--
A friend of mine and myself are starting a new beginners' Greek group that will follow J. Gresham Machen's, New Testament Greek for Beginners. I have the second edition of this work but my colleague, Kat Doe, has both the first and second editions. There is a photostatic copy of this book available online, which would prove useful, as this old edition I have cost me $50. Kat or myself might ...

OT: Circe & Odyseuss

Quick Question not language related: I could have sworn I remember one of odyseuss's men chose to stay on the island with circe and remain a swine. I can't find it anywhere. (Although I do have a terrible memory - maybe I remember seeing it in a comic book somehwere instead of reading it in the Oddysey.)

early struggles teaching myself ancient Greek

Since I retired, I've begun trying to learn ancient Greek. A local faculty member recommended Mastronarde's Introduction to Attic Greek, which has an associated web site. But even with the assistance of the latter, I've been having a bit of a struggle. The first two units are devoted entirely to pronunciation and accentuation (resp.), and the second, in particular, is difficult.
