I tried to use the Perseus vocab tool with puzzling results.

Adjectives agree with their nouns...

...in gender, number and case. So says White's Rules of Syntax 805. But the example he gives:

h( o(do\j stenh\ h=/n

Does this mean that although stenh\ is A-Declension it is masuline.. but why not use stenoj?

PS How do I use unicode?

scanned iliad book 1

hi, just in case people miss it in another post, i just put online a scanned iliad book 1 doc, using West's teubner text; the caesura as well as the bucolic diaresis (another important division in the line) is marked.

NB in particular the strange scansion of the 1st word of 193, which is usually spelled ἧος in other iliad editions to correct this.

First Greek Writer Questions/Frustrations

Hello; I've been practicing my Greek composition (or rather, learning it) through Sidgwick's First Greek Writer. But I have a couple of issues/questions, particularly concerning the answer key.
