Accent Marks

How do you know where to put accent marks? I know how to use them to differ between similar looking words such as τίς and τις but what about in words where it does not change the meaning? or should I even worry about that?

Verbs - Best Reference Guides?

I would love to get peoples opinion on investing in a good Verb Reference Guide. I use the "Big Gold Book of Latin Verbs"... There doesn't appear to be one for Greek.

The one I'm leaning toward at this time is "All the Greek Verbs" by N. Marione. The only drawback I see is it's in Italian.

Any thoughts out there as to Greek Verb Reference Guides?

introduction to Greek

hi all,
I've finally decided that latin doesn't take enough time out of my day, and made the veeerrrryyy beginnings of a plunge into Greek.

double Ï„

Hi guys!

before anything I would like to say thank you because you are really helping me in this learning adventure:

γλώττα ... γλώσσα

just to mention some of them, but I would like to know what it the pronunciation on classic greek for this double consonant, ...

Little T&A

For those of you interested in the theoretical ground of this discussion, I can offer only this meager fare.

Most modern theories of tense and aspect developed in response to a very small section in Hans Reichenbach's "Elements of Symbolic Logic" (1947). Reichenbach there considers, in general terms, the difference among these three sentences:

I have lost my keys.
I lost my keys.
I had lost my keys.

Each sentence describes the same PAST event. ...

Heretofore Unmentioned Greek Textbook

It lately occurred to me that I should perhaps mention here the Greek textbook we use at St. John's College.

When I was an undergraduate we were still using Chase and Phillips. But sometime in the mid-1970s we switched to a manual written by two tutors (professors) at the College. It is called "An Introduction to Ancient Greek".
