An unending story thread

I was thinking that if we had an ongoing story in ancient Greek that several people contributed to, it might be a useful exercise in keeping our prose composition skills sharp. I'll start with the first 3 words, and then the next poster can add 3 more words, and the next 3 more, and so on. Not only could this be good practice but it would also be interesting to see what kind of sentence ...

I ran across αὑτηΐ a form of οὗτος.
I looked it up using Perseus and it told me it is
Nom. Sg. Fem. indeclform iota_intens.
(My quess would have been dative with the iota subscript being changed to adscript.)

Now my request: Can someone tell me something about iota_intens(ifying?)

Crosby&Schaeffer/Anabasis vocab sets for Crosswire Flash

I know a lot of people don't use Crosby&Schaeffer, but since the vocabulary is geared towards Anabasis, this may be useful for people studying White as well. There is a handy (and free) Java-based flashcard program at http://www.crosswire.org/flashcards/

By default, it has various card sets for biblical greek and hebrew. I found a collection of vocabulary files for Crosby&Schaeffer and converted them to work with the Crosswire FlashCards program. Once you install FlashCards, just download ...

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. I am working with a book right now that is not actually on the Textkit page. I am reluctant to stop in the middle, however, and so have been using the resources here to supplement the work I have been doing. ...

Basic Greek Vocabulary

I have written a program to drill students on the 1500-word Basic Greek Vocabulary list. It includes sound and pictures for each word, and so-far has about 880 of the 1500 words intended. I have designed to program to drill in progressively harder stages until the words are part of your active vocabulary.

Anyway, I need beta testers. Anyone interested? Find me a place to upload the program where others can download it and install ...
