Iota adscript


This is a bit of an odd, unimportant question, but I just realized that the texts I have that use the iota adscript accent the first vowel of a long vowel + iota diphthong, so ῶι e.g. instead of ωῖ. My first question is whether this is in fact the convention for all texts that use the iota subscript. And second, why is it done this way? I was under the impression that the ...

verbal adjectives

I understand the usage of these adjectives and the constructions in which they are used; furthermore, I see that their usage is nearly identical to the usage of the gerundive in Latin. What is the equivalent of a verbal adjective in English?

Anyone in Greece now?

Kalimera sas! I am a new registrant at this site and was wondering if anyone who is currently learning the Greek language is in Greece now?

I moved here 3 years ago from Canada. I am in Thessaloniki - I love the city to visit, but I do miss the quiet! I would say I am an intermediate speaker of Greek - not quite fully capable of holding a conversation for hours and still stumbling ...

The letter Sigma

Hola, I did a search on this topic, and couldn't find anything in the forum, so I wanted to ask. What is the deal with the letter sigma, and it's alternate appearance (in the shape of a crescent moon)?
