Continuing studies

Hello everyone!

I've been learning Ancient Greek for the past year as part of my course at university, using Athenaze books one and two (supplemented in the parts that they lack by my wonderful tutor!), but I'm planning on taking either some Latin modules or Ancient History modules instead of continuing onto Intermediate Greek next year to try and keep my breadth of study as wide as possible - when Greek takes 2 of your ...

What is the best way to.......

I am in the process of learning Greek, and have been studying it on my own. I have been using some different textbooks and even some online courses. Though I must admit that I am having a little trouble grasping all the declensions and syntax. There are just sooooo many diffeent ones that I just feel a little overwelmed. Does it just take a long time to get it all? Any suggestions?

Thrasymachus by Peckett and Munday

I'm thinking of buying this book. It sounds like an enjoyable way to learn. I'd like to get the opinions of anyone here who have (or have read) this book on whether they think it's an good book for self-study.

Also, I just want to make shure of a couple of things: Firstly, that it is for Attic Greek. And secondly, that it has a vocabulary section and no seperate dictionary is required.

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 ...
