Rewriting exercise

In an effort to get more participation in these doodads, I've refrained from calling this one a translation exercise. Why? Because whatever is offered need not be a translation of the words, more likely a fresh rendition of the 'meaning' behind the words.

So then, try this, one and all, from a 1645 poem by Edmund Waller, Of English Verse

Poets that marble seek
Must carve in Latin or in Greek.


I'm sure that pithy ...

Translation help for James 2:14

I have read that the last part of James 2:14 should read either "can faith save him" or "can the faith save him" as opposed to "can that faith save him" or "can such faith save him" etc.

What is the correct translation for this verse?

reading course in homeric greek

Help! I've miraculously found the book 1 of Reading Course in Homeric Greek, and book 2 is available used at various places; now all I need to study by myself is the Teacher's Manual and Key - and I cannot find it anywhere. Searched all the major book finding engines, through isbn, title and author, there's not a single copy, new or used, in the whole world! Now get this: Loyola Press wrote me saying ...

Goodwin's Greek Grammar

Just aquired this b/c it was interesting and cheap. I've got a 1951 MacMillan edition.

Any particular strenghts/weakness/caveats for this book? So far it seems to lack any mention of abluat (e.g. when dicussing leipw/elipon style verbs)

Liddel and Scott

What is the difference between the different editions? Is a non-ninth edition worth buying?

Is is true that there's going to be a new dictionary coming out to replace Liddel and Scott (or an official update or something?)

The ~-sign

I have a minor question concerning Greek. What does the ~-sign that is sometimes positioned over a letter (e. g.: ã) indicate?

Thank you. :)

Greek: an Intensive Course by Hansen and Quinn

Does anyone else use this book? I picked this one up about a month ago and have been impressed by its thoroughness, which is really important to someone learning it on their own, like me.
