And any idea about connectin the single letter like in latin letters.

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.)

Issues with Athenaze

Hey everyone! I'm using Athenaze to learn Greek, or rather try to learn Greek, and I'm finding that I get lost at certain points. I find it jumps into new declensions without warning in the readings, and almost leaves you to sort out why it changes on your own. I don't know, I'm probably just a bad student. Can anyone recommend what I can do to get this grammar stuff to sink in better? Are ...

H & Q - Unit 1 - Page 36 #8

Hi Everybody,

This is my first post on textkit so I guess I'd better introduce myself before I grill you with my question about H & Q Unit 1.

My name is Matt. About 1 1/2 years ago I was in the shower and had a revelation: I would take Ancient Greek and learn how to read The Iliad in the original language. To my great surprise my friends were not ...

kathedountai

On Thursday I wasted 4 hours of my life on a 'Klausur Griechisch 12', as did my classmates. :cry:

I so hate translating Lukian, so of course it was a Lukian text we had to translate :-P.

Anyway, this was not a test my teacher had set, but some external board and their commentary was very ...
