White A Group

The group has sort of faded away, however there is some interest in starting work again after Christmas. I am going to go back to the beginning and post some of the English to Greek exercises, if anyone has any comment on these it would be most welcome. At the moment I am having a few problem with the fonts, as this is the first time I have tried them:
Exercise 58 (page 13)

Greek vocab email

Is there no Greek vocabulary email function? I only see latin.

If there isn't, what would be involved in creating one? (I would be happy to help if that is the only hold up).

Okay, the only place where I have ever seen a digamma is in the grammar books! I can't find it in Homer, not in Hesiod, inscriptions, anywhere!!

Can somebody please point me to a digamma in a real piece of literature, inscription, a picture, etc.?

Seeing is believing, and I'd really like to see one for myself.

Greek Fonts

Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry this is taking me so long to get the fonts display resolved. I upgraded the forum right before the holiday and I have not had time to get back to it. It's the weekend in a few hours so I'll be working on the matter tonight.

Again, I'm very sorry.

I find there's something wrong with the above sentence.
First I miss 'tou' between korax and korakos, also the article 'o' before korax, and second: ofthalmo, which declention is it? (What's the best translation into english of this idiomatic proverb?)

thank you

A couple books I found

Hi there, I recently found Abbott & Mansfield's A Primer of Greek Grammar and The Hillard/Botting Elementary Greek Excercises. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these texts? They both seem pretty weighty, and I don't think the primer would be exceptionally useful for self study, but the option exists. I also have a Collins Greek / English <> English / Greek dictionary on hand. Any comments on these two texts would ...

Declining the indefinite pronouns and adjectives

To Everyone--
My teacher taught us about the interrogative pronouns and adjectives last semester, providing a chart at the time, which declined the interrogative much like we would decline a noun, with Masc and Fem., neuter and singular and plural. However, she is now teaching us indefinite pronouns and adjectives, and although they are very simiular, she has not provided a chart like she did with the interrogatives.
If there is someone here who understands ...

Using SPIonic

To Everyone--
I have just read the article on using SPIonic on Textkit. However, I'm not sure I understood it all. Do I type the SPIonic on a wordpad, or notepad, or document and then cut and paste it onto the Textkit screen? And when I do that, am I to preface the font with the bracketed code? And, is there another code I use at the end of the font to switch back to ...

National Greek Exam?


I'm an independent learner. I only heard about this recently, but I think it would be a good idea to do this, if I can, if only to gauge my progress.

I'm also this is would be a good idea to take one of these exams for the sake of getting ahead in college. I am definately going to major in theatre, but I want to take some ...

Perseus "Greek Words in Context"

Be always careful in using it ! Searching for ei)/wqa, "I am used to...", from an almost unused e)/qw, I was given the form e)/qeto, obviously from ti/qhmi. Formally, e)/qeto could be a passive imperfect from e)/qw, but this form is unused.

So be also careful in using the "Greek Morphological Analysis" tool : it would give all the theoretically possible forms, even if these were never used in real Greek.
