Trouble with pronouns

Hi everyone. I'm new to Greek and have been trying to work through White's First Greek Book. I'm having a little trouble with Lesson XVII, specifically Paragraph 162, question 10 where it says "oi( te au)tou= e)kei/nou" I assume it is refering back to "the soldiers" but I was wondering why it was in the genitive singular. Does it mean "of that same"? I'm probably just overlooking some obvious answer but it's been driving me ...

Best Beginner's Greek Grammar ?

Greetings Greek people!<br /><br />The only Greek word that I know is "episkopos" so naturally I would like to at least be able to decline him!<br /><br />I am a beginner. I have glanced at a few explanations regarding breathings, accents etc. and am astounded by its relative complexity. (latin has the letters with which I am familiar!) I don't really understand it; but then again I've only glanced at explanations. So even though I ...

Does anyone here know of a thorough Greek grammar, which has stood the test of time, is advanced, and is relatively ubiquitous/easy to procure?<br /><br />p.s. I would prefer it if the book were more-or-less THE definitive text on Greek grammar.

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 ...
