Athenaze Website

Hi all

Wow... it's been a while since I posted here. For those of you who are learning Greek with the Athenaze textbooks, the following site may be of some use to you. It has various exercises which correspond to the books by chapter. There is also one for the Wheelock text, which I'll post in the learning Latin section of the forum.

Italian-Greek dictionary

I'm amazed! I'm looking for a Greek-Italian\Italian-Greek dictionary but in my school everybody says a Italian-Greek dictionary is useless. Useless??????? If you want to learn a language you MUST be able to translate into and from it! Italian teachers are veeeeeery old-fashoned.
Do you know any ditionary?

So I went and bought Lidell & Scott

Having recently received my financial aid check (I'm a classics undergrad), I was up for a little fancy living and decided to give into temptation and buy the Greek Lexicon of Lidell & Scott a few weeks back.

My impressions have been mixed. The dictionary itself is fantastic, the finest Greek-English dictionary in the world and a triumph of scholarship. The problems I found were:

    *Its enormous size and weight. This is a difficult ...

How to say:"at night"?

To say "when"( in the evening, at night, this year) in Latin is used Abl-nocte, anno, or Abl+in-in pace, or Locativus-interdiu, noctu (if i`m not mistaken) and what about Greak language?

Aorist X Perfect

Hi, Guys,

I have a serous question and I'm counting on you to help me.

The Greek grammars in my mother language (Portuguese) translate both aorist and perfect the same way - something like the English simple past - and don't make any difference between them.

JWW translates the aorist as simple past and the perfect as present perfect, as far as I know, there's a litte "aspectual" difference between these two.

The syntax of a love-crazed boar

I recently ran across a poem which used to be attributed to Theocritus (Kiessling makes it number 30), but which Gow (O.C.T. editor of Bucolici Graeci) puts after Bion in the anonymous section.

It's a very curious thing, about the boar who castrated and killed Adonis getting interrogated by Adonis' girlfriend, Aphrodite. The boar claims he didn't want to kill the boy:
