The Umlaut?

I'm hoping someone can explain what this German symbol is doing on my Greek words. :P

i.e.
What do these two dots mean: i5 ?

And what are they called?

Krasis, elisis and hiati

I wonder, is there a rule that tells when to use krasis, when to elide the final vowel, and when to leave hiatus? (I mean in prose, in verse it is dictated by the metrum)

Aoidoi.org: two Greeks overcome, Ibycus and Sappho

For a contrast to the political and missionary zeal on the open board, I offer two poems about being overcome by passion of a different sort.

Ibycus 287, the one where he says, and I tremble at his approach // like a yoke-worn, prize-winning horse nearing old age // unwillingly goes to contest with swift chariot. This might even be a complete poem.

Sappho 31, he seems to me, that man, as lucky as the ...

Happily,

Cases in Greek

Hey, me again! I'm having trouble with the different cases of Greek, and wondering what I can do about it. Is there a clear explanation of what the cases are exactly, and how to use them. My text isn't very helpful so far on it. And should I memorize each case before moving on to anything else as they appear? thanks for the help and advice!

uden allo... e

On pages 18 and 19 of Thrasymachus there are a couple of sentences with ou0de\n a1llo followed by h2 later in the sentence.

I think ou0de\n a1llo means "no-one else", but I can't see how h2 fits in. It seems to be a non-literal expression. :?

Here are the quotes: (Both from Aphrodite.)
