Epictetus Discourses 1:1

Has anybody here tried to read Epictetus? Is it just me or is this greek extremely difficult? (I thought he would be a piece of cake because I'm very familiar with him in translation and I read that his greek usage was similar to biblical greek).

Anyway,heres my actual question.

online advanced Greek courses?

I have used some free online beginner courses for Biblical Greek in the past, and they were good for getting me ready to take courses such as Mounce's. Is there any free online advanced courses that serve that same purpose, something that gets you prepared and lets you know what you are gettng into?

Representing Greek: the sequel

Amazing! Fantastic! Fabulous!

I have just completed the setup of KeyMan with ClassicalGreek as described here.

I can now switch back and forth from the Roman alphabet to the Greek alphabet with a simple keyboard shortcut (ctrl+alt+z for me, but you can pick whatever you like!)

The characters are Unicode, of course, so they won't be visible to users without Unicode support.

Testing:
αβξδεφγηιξκλμνοπθρστυνωχψζ

Can you see those?

Dictonary

I was wondering if anyone knew where i could find an Attic greek dictionary on-line for free. I figure there has to be one out there somewhere, or if anyone knows of a Latin Dic.
Thank you

Plutarch

So, I'm trying to translate this bit from Plutarch. The reference says "Plutarch, Dem. 7". But I can't figure out what work this is... I want to find an english translation so I can check my work. Perseus doesn't seem to have it. Does anyone know what this is and where I can find it?

:)

Which is the correct way to pronounce this?

I have seen GINOMAI pronounced with the ending AI sounding like a-hee. But then again I have seen it pronounced as AI just like the way it looks "ai" as in aisle. Are both pronounciations correct? Why would there be a difference between some grammars?

Online courses

I am new to this group, and I hope someone can assist me with my question. I would like to learn New Testament Greek, but I do not live in an area that offers these courses. I have been looking at a few colleges that offer Greek through distance education (e.g. Moody Bible Institute). I would like some opinions on whether or not a person can learn the language adequately without interaction with a professor. ...

a)/nqrwpoj o(, h( qeo/j o(, h(

In Rouse's "A First Greek Course"
a)/nqrwpoj is listed as a)/nqrwpoj o(, h( and qeo/j as qeo/j o(, h(
Have any of you seen these two words used in the feminine gender?
h( qeo/j in particular would surprise me considering that there is a feminine counterpart qea/
