Basic Greek Vocabulary

I have written a program to drill students on the 1500-word Basic Greek Vocabulary list. It includes sound and pictures for each word, and so-far has about 880 of the 1500 words intended. I have designed to program to drill in progressively harder stages until the words are part of your active vocabulary.

Anyway, I need beta testers. Anyone interested? Find me a place to upload the program where others can download it and install ...

Vowels...and Diphthongs

So, what would be the duration of the vowels ε, η, ο, ω.....?

Well, this seems to be a silly question...but i have a point here. So, your opinion is welcome.

ok, le me give a push for talking.

It's widely admitted that ε and ο are "short", while η and ω are "long"...

So, if we make a convention and represent the "short" duration of ε and ο as...let's say ...

Autodidactic Greek textbooks?

I have just completed an Introductory Greek I course. First semester went very well, and I am fairly comfortable with that material covered. Second semester, however, was quite difficult.

Subject and Predicate Nominative

So I know that the subject and the predicate on both sides of a form of ειμι are supposed to agree in number and gender. What if the subject is masculine and the predicate nominative is a feminine noun? Is that allowed? Does it ever actually happen?

Homeric to Attic

I was wondering if there are books that are made for people who have a good handle on Homeric Greek and wish to learn Attic (or Koine or any other dialect). I'm trying to decide which dialect to start with if I decide to learn Greek. I'd love to start with Homer, but I'd like to eventually be able to read Attic too.

Catching up to the Ten Thousand...

Greetings! I just finished my first year of Ancient Greek at college, using the ANCIENT Hillard and Botting Greek text (Elementary Greek Translation). I'm finishing up the passages and grammar in the book by my lonesome this summer, and afterwards I'm hoping to try The Anabasis...

Any suggestions on how to proceed? Should I try and learn some Xenophon-ish vocab beforehand, or just plunge in with a dictionary and a bit of hope? I don't ...
