I have never learnt accents before but want to accent a text I have composed to make it look pretty. Is it possible to (correctly) do so with only a list of accentuation rules (which I vaguely know) and a lexicon? Or should I just not try for fear of making mistakes?

greek websites (flashcards et cetera)

Does anyone know of any good web sites for Greek, something like the ones available for wheeklocks Latin? Maybe with quia flash cards? I am using (going to use) athenaze but any vocab is fine.
Also, does any one know of a site or book that discusses the differences between latin and Greek? Which is more clear, more poetic, logical, sound cooler, plural neuter singular verb? Yes, it is subjective but aren't most things. (personal ...

On pronunciation

I have been reading your messages posted here, in which you deal about how to speak Ancient Greek. I have listened some audio files and some others materials. I am not in a Greek class at my High School but sometimes I go to the Greek Department in order to talk about this with the Greek teacher. In Spain, people usually follow Erasmus pronunciation. But I think it´s not correct -by fact, we cannot ...

Aoidoi.org: Delectus Indelectatus

Over the years I have collected a few shorter poems which are cranky or gloomy. Most of these are from the Anthology, but Sappho sometimes had a sharp tongue, and Hipponax is famous mostly for his bad temper.

Verb list or equivalent?

Hi-This has probably been posted before at some point: Does anybody know of a small vocab. book, or even a list of something like "The 100 Most Common Classical Greek Verbs"-? Or something of that sort. It occured to me that in most authors I've read, you tend to use & re-use a few basic verbs, like eimi-be, oida-know etc. It makes more sense to learn thoroughly the forms of the most used verbs & ...

textbook for ancient Greek

I've taught myself Latin in the last 5-6 years, and I want to learn ancient Greek the same way. I've purchase Mastronarde's Attic Greek, which has an excellent website but whose early chapters are a bit of a challenge. I've also heard good things about Athenaze, which has a workbook and and a teacher's guide as well, which might be useful for someone trying to learn on their own.

Any recommendations?
