"Good" in Greek ?

Another question for this day:

What does "good" mean in Greek ? Why are so many translations of "good" in Greek like eu, agathos, ethlos or kalos ?

Is there any difference in the use or does each one have a specia connoation ?

For example hasana in Arabic (like in names Hassan, Hussein, etc.) means beautiful & nice (referring to the idea that something beautiful must be good). And it's similar to the Greek ...

Greek prepositions: Why are they so strange ?

Hello to everybody,

I'm still learning Greek and gradually things go right, but since I started to learn, I asked myself: Why greek prepositions are so strage ?

They don't have just one meaning, but always several ones and I don't see the basic idea behind the word like direction etc. They seem to stretch over a variaty of meanings.

For example: pros and para, both meaning at, around, but what's the difference ?

Aspect vs time

Some sholars say that even in the indicative the Greek verb does not indicate time (except maybe in the future tense) but aspect only.
I have not read any of the books that deal with this myself yet but I would like to know if there is a explanation why the vast majority of the imperfect and aorist indicatives are translated into English past time.
If in all these cases the context indicates (with deictic ...

Ever thought of a "Learning Greek wiki"

Like wikipedia, but specifically about learning the language. Each wiki page could be based around lessons. I'm using White's so I could start to write up (since it's out of copywrite) the first lessons and people could add concepts, ideas and opinions to it.

If people thought it was a good idea I could host it on my site.

If people don't. I understand. :D
