Sidgwick First Greek Writer XXXVII

I've found that accents are mostly a distraction during composition. So when I'm working with pen and paper, I've been writing everything down, and then going back and adding accents throughout. This is harder to do with the computer, so I haven't done it. I can go through and start adding them though. I have noticed that the pen and paper exercise is very good for helping me remember the accents (unlike typing them on ...

Greek to GCSE

How much do you all know about this text? Is it useful, quick, and easy like Athenaze (although this I'm certain isn't a reading text), and will it get me reading Ancient Greek prose and verse authors?

Digital tutorial on White's First Greek Book

http://www.chlt.org/FirstGreekBook/

A review of a new book on digital classics criticizes the choice of FGB rather than the digital tutorial itself:
"For his part, Rydberg-Cox makes a compelling case for widely available, digital resources for learning ancient Greek (especially for the benefit of students geographically removed from elite universities).

Morices Attic stories ἰχθῦς?

οἱ τοίνυν ἰχθῦς, ὅταν παρίωσι, προσνέουσι τοῖς πουλύποσιν ἀδεῶς, ὡσεὶ πέτραις.

The context is that cuttlefish lie in ambush for fish. This line makes sense to me with ἰχθύες but not if it really is ἰχθῦς.

I would assume some typesetting error but given my level of Greek I exclude some huge misunderstanding on my part.

A syntactic point not found in Dickey

Smyth, sec. 2631:

2631. In subordinate temporal and relative clauses the infinitive is often used for the indicative or optative by attraction to an infinitive standing in the principal clause after a verb of saying. In some cases ἔφη may be mentally inserted.

ἔφη . . . ἐπειδὴ δὲ γενέσθαι ἐπὶ τῇ οἰκίᾳ τῇ Ἀγάθωνος, ἀνεῳγμένην καταλαμβάνειν τὴν θύραν he said that, when he arrived at the house of Agathon, he found the door open ...
