Which copy should I buy?

I'm thinking about getting myself a proper bound second hand copy of the Odyssey, and I was wondering which edition. I'm looking for something with helpful footnotes and comments that I might just possibly be able to find in a second hand bookshop at Charing Cross or somewhere near there.

Prepositions

Greetings, <br /><br />This is my first post ;D I am a wee little beginner student of Greek (koine). I love the good resources available on textkit, and think the forums are some of the best on the web. <br /><br />I would like some help on greek prepositions. I read beginning grammars, and find the vocabulary difficult to solidify. I think this has to do with the ambiguity of English prepositions. Lexicons often enhance ...

Subjunctive of EREW

Can someone tell me why the 1st person pl subjunctive of e)re/w is e)rei/wmen (Pharr section 158 line 3) and not e)reu/wmen. Actually I don't even understand why it should be e)reu/wmen. After the contraction of the Epsilon with the Omicron, why does the Omega still appear? Shouldn't it be part of eu, since it is the product of the contraction?

Stigma, Digamma kai Koppa;

I have been reading a few websites lately which mention three Greek letters that disappeared completely by classical Greek; Digamma, Koppa, and Stigma. Were there more letters that went out of use by the classical era? I have one source which says that there were more letters which are no longer in use today. I am curious about this. Also, I'd like to know what they looked like, particularly the Stigma, and what order they ...

Aoidoi: Simonides' "Danae's Lament" commented

I just finished adding vocabulary and grammar notes to Simonides 543. It is a very charming poem, and I think anyone who has mastered the fundamentals of Greek should be able to read the poem with the help of the notes.<br /><br />http://www.aoidoi.org/texts/simonides/543.php<br /><br />There's even one athematic second aorist imperative! :) <br />

eyenonto

In the vocabulary section of Pharr it says that e)ge/nonto is 2ndaorist of gi/gnomai.<br />With e)geno/mhn listed as the 3rd principal part I would have expected e)ge/neto.<br />Is the one a regular form and the other a variant?<br />Thank you.<br />Bert.

How much Latin before Greek?

If starting both languages from scratch, how far should one progress in Latin, before attempting Greek?<br /><br />Wheelock completely?<br /><br />I assume Latin should precede Greek, rather than vice versa, but I am open to suggestions.
