Greek characters on a Mac

I'm just beginning the study of ancient Greek, using Mastronarde as a text and trying to master the alphabet, pronunciation and accentuation. As I did with Latin over the last few years, I take detailed notes.

My question concerns how to render the characters with their accent marks, etc. Do I need a specifically "Greek" font like SPIonic? Is it possible -- especially at my novice stage -- to use a font like Georgia or ...

Translation Question


I have just registered with Textkit, so this message forum is new to me. Please forgive me if I am going about this in the wrong fashion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Autodidactic Greek textbooks?

I have just completed an Introductory Greek I course. First semester went very well, and I am fairly comfortable with that material covered. Second semester, however, was quite difficult.

I have had some training in Latin- an accelerated eight week summer course- which was the equivalent to four college semesters. So, for Latin, I have a working knowledge and understanding of how Latin as a language works- but I am still dearly lacking in many ...

Subject and Predicate Nominative

So I know that the subject and the predicate on both sides of a form of ειμι are supposed to agree in number and gender. What if the subject is masculine and the predicate nominative is a feminine noun? Is that allowed? Does it ever actually happen?
