How similar is Ancient Greek grammar to Classical Latin Gram

Before I delve into Greek, I think it a mark of sagacity to inquire as to whether Ancient Greek grammar is similar to that of Classical Latin. <br /><br />A propósito, I saw a thread about the periphrastic! Mine old nemesis! (just joking)<br /><br /> ;)

Genetive Absolute

Section 121, line 4 of Pharr reads mh/nioj )Axilh=j proiaya/shj polla\j yuxa\j h(pw/wn )/Aidi teuca/shj d' au)tou\j e(lw/ria ku/nessin oi)wnoi=si/ te dai=ta boulh\ Dio\j e)telei/eto.<br />There is a note to section 1111. This section deals with genitive absolutes.<br />The Genitives in this line don't seem to fit the description.<br />mh/nioj )Axilh=oj acts as the subject of the whole sentence so there is a strong grammatical connection between the words in the genitive and the rest ...

Delphoi

Hello everyone,<br /><br />I'm German so please be patient with my English. I'd like to ask your advice: I'm trying to find out the right Ancient Greek spelling of the famous Delphic inscription "Know Thyself". It is usually written "gamma, nu, omega, theta, iota - sigma, alpha, upsilon, tau, omicron, nu". I've come across a different version where the last word is written with an "epsilon" behind the "sigma". <br />I'm also trying to figure ...

IB Classical Greek HL

I'm (privately) studying the International Baccalaureate higher-level classical Greek course, intending to take the exams in May 2004 - and I was just wondering if anybody else here had any information about it (apart from what's in the Subject Guide and Vade Mecum). I'm especially curious if anyone has seen (or even better, knows where I can obtain ;)) past exam papers, and can give me some ...

It's Coming!... and now... It's Here!

Long Promised. Smyth's Greek Grammar will be online by the end of the month.<br /><br />My most productive volunteer - a local high school student - is photocopying it now. <br /><br />At just under 800 pages, this file will be huge. :'( We'll most likely make it available for download both whole and as separate parts.<br /><br />jeff

Iliad line 28 and 31

(If it is preferable that I have one question per post, please say so, here are two.)<br /><br />1. <br />Line 28 reads mh/ nu/ toi ou) xrai/smh| skh=ptron kai\ ste/mma qeoi=o.<br />I translate this as; "The scepter and wreath of god will most certainly not help you". (I used -most certainly not...- because of the double negative + nu/).<br />My question is concerning xrai/smh|.It says in the foot note that it is 2nd aor. ...

Letters and Sounds

Does anyone have a good way to remember the sounds of the various Greek letters? I'm having an awful time with that...gamma looks like a "y", rho looks like a "p", and by the time I've worked out what each letter is supposed to sound like, I've forgotten the word I'm trying to read! <br /><br />Any thoughts would be helpful. <br /><br />Keesa
