Greek Verb Tables

Hi all--

While taking an elementary Greek course, I found most verb paradigms cumbersomely arranged, spread across multiple pages, or akwardly organized. So I made my own verb charts with λυω, φιλεω, τιμαω, and δηλοω

I found them useful and thought you might too, so they are available as PDF files at my website http://www.brandonmason.com

Ellipsis examples

Can anyone direct me to examples in Greek which parallel the Latin grave inscriptions, e.g.: quod tu, et ego, quod ego, et omnes, where the form of "to be" must be supplied in different cases?

Even better would be any examples from the Iliad but I am not holding my breath; at this point I would be happy for a necessary future.

Language and Ancient Greeks

I am curious. Do you think language shows how a culture thinks? I think what I mean is is some of the properties of their culture and way of thinking and who they were inherit in their language? If so, how is this displayed with Ancient Greek? How do you think who the Ancient Greeks were is revealed through their language and ways of expressing themselves?

Aoidoi - Three Homeric Hymns: Artemis, Hephestus, Demeter

There are three new poems available today, Homeric Hymns.

I worked up the smaller two, to Artemis and to Hephestus, to provide a contrast to the very much larger Hymn to Demeter which Nicholas Swift (aka. swiftnicholas here) did.

A lot of work went into the Hymn to Demeter — all ~495 lines of it — but I hope the results will help more people to read this poem. Because it's so large, one thing ...
