Wanted: A Textkit Homeric Greek Vocbulary tool

I noted that Latin has a few vocabulary tools. whether those that have and do use them benifit by them to me is unknown. Howeer, I would like to see a vocabulary tool for Homeric Greek.

the most I have been doing so far is writing the vacabularies out on index cards and flashing myself. I may get the stem but when I see the same word in a different Declension or a verb conjugated ...

Something Useful

You know about those dictionaries where they have those marks for where each letter of the alphabet starts to speed up word searches? I wished my Greek lexicons had that feature, so I inserted my own markers into my lexicons to speed up searches. For the letters which have an overwhelming number of words in them (alpha, epsilon, etc.) I subdivided them with more markers (alpha-alpha, alpha-mu, alpha-pi) so I could find words more quickly ...

I have just recently begun studying Attic Greek and do not fully understand the accentuation system. The question I have concerns the reasons why the acute can only be on the antepenultimate syllable if the ultima is short.

Pindar and Nemea 1

I am working on Pindar's Nemean 1. I was just wondering if anyone would know anything about the meter of the poem. I need the schema for it (the strope and epode.) Although I think I can figure out the meter for myself, I just need to double-check it. Any help would be appreciated!

Basic question about accent marks


I've recently gotten back into Greek, having studied it about 15 years ago in high school. Needless to say, it's turning my brain into a pretzel, but I love it! Was just wondering if anyone had any advice on whether I should memorize and use the accent marks from the get-go.

Some questions on Lysias XXV, 7-11


I am reading this piece from Lysias 25: Defense Against a Charge of Subverting the Democracy.

As I read it, Lysias is defending an oligarch who is saying that the question of the constitution comes down to what benefits one the most. I thought Lysias was a democrat? Did he not care about his clients' opinions?

And how could he think this line of arguing would win over an assembly of wholehearted democrats, sitting ...
