A Note on the Semantics of the Aorist and Perfect

I recently discovered some interesting observations concerning the interpretation of the aorist and perfect tenses. Among linguists these observations are well-known. But I don't recall any discussion of them within our forums.

Yet now and then arises here the question, "What is the semantic difference between the aorist and the perfect?" We all (should) know the (more or less) textbook answer: the aorist discloses the action of the verb simply as occurring, "an action pure ...

This is the book of Liddell and Scott...

I've see the rhyme

This is the book of Liddell and Scott
Some of it is good and some of it not
That which is good is Scott
That which is Liddell is not

Is there a basis for this rhyme, aside from the fact that Scott rhymes with not?

"Popular rhyme"

"A popular rhyme in England runs as follows:

This is the book of Liddell and Scott,
Some of it's good and some of it's not.
That which is good is Scott,
That which is Liddell is not!"

Harry Thurston Peck, History of Classical Philology


Was it really such a popular rhyme? It does not produce a single result in Google these days. Enjoy it for what it's worth.

LSJ Intermediate

Hello,

I am a classical philology student in Bucharest, Romania, first year of studies.
After thinking for a while, I decided that the best lexicon for me at the moment is the LSJ Intermediate. It is hard for me to buy it since I don't have a job right now. Does anyone have one copy that could get rid of it? Can anyone help me? I really need this lexicon.
Thank you.

Best regards, Ionut

Greek an Intensive Course like Latin an Intensive Course?

I really liked the format of Latin: An Intensive Course. It serves my learning style well, and now that I wanna get a hand in Greek, I was wondering if its anything like Latin: An Intensive Course?

Does it have LONG readings every unit like M&F?

Athenaze

I saw Book I of Athenaze at the bookstore today. Out of curiosity I flipped through it. The thing which caught my attention was that it had NT Greek and (I think) Homeric in the same volume.

If there is anyone here who uses this book, does this series mix different dialects together? From what I've read in the "which dialect to start with" document here on Textkit, I thought there were big differences between ...
