A couple books I found

Hi there, I recently found Abbott & Mansfield's A Primer of Greek Grammar and The Hillard/Botting Elementary Greek Excercises. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these texts? They both seem pretty weighty, and I don't think the primer would be exceptionally useful for self study, but the option exists. I also have a Collins Greek / English <> English / Greek dictionary on hand. Any comments on these two texts would ...

Declining the indefinite pronouns and adjectives

To Everyone--
My teacher taught us about the interrogative pronouns and adjectives last semester, providing a chart at the time, which declined the interrogative much like we would decline a noun, with Masc and Fem., neuter and singular and plural. However, she is now teaching us indefinite pronouns and adjectives, and although they are very simiular, she has not provided a chart like she did with the interrogatives.
If there is someone here who understands ...

Using SPIonic

To Everyone--
I have just read the article on using SPIonic on Textkit. However, I'm not sure I understood it all. Do I type the SPIonic on a wordpad, or notepad, or document and then cut and paste it onto the Textkit screen? And when I do that, am I to preface the font with the bracketed code? And, is there another code I use at the end of the font to switch back to ...

Perseus "Greek Words in Context"

Be always careful in using it ! Searching for ei)/wqa, "I am used to...", from an almost unused e)/qw, I was given the form e)/qeto, obviously from ti/qhmi. Formally, e)/qeto could be a passive imperfect from e)/qw, but this form is unused.

So be also careful in using the "Greek Morphological Analysis" tool : it would give all the theoretically possible forms, even if these were never used in real Greek.

Where to start with Koine?

Hello,

I'm 13 and I want to read biblical Greek. I already know how hard learning another language is because of Japanese. I reached Kanji (AKA hell) and thought about where I was ever going to use Japanese in my life. Soon after, I quit Japanese and thought about Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.

Now because of my religion, I'm going to learn Hebrew and Greek. I heard Greek is much easier to learn so I ...
