θύω -- past perfect

Hi,

I'm not sure if θύω carries an augment in the past perfect ...I'm guessing it does but I wondered if someone could confirm that.

In otherwords: Is it ἐτεθύκη or no augment so just τεθύκη ??

Thanks,
French

Vocabulary Drill Program for First Greek Book

Hello,
Here is a no-frills Vocabulary Flashcard Drill for White's First Greek Book that I wanted to do 3 years ago but got sidetracked. More to follow as I go through the lessons again up to where I left off previously and then as I complete new lessons.

κραυγή - κλαγγή

Is there a difference between these two words? The Homeric textbook used κλαγγή but FGB is starting us out with κραυγή for apparently the same meaning. Is it basically the same?

ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ = ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς ?

In the beginning of Athenaze we are told that Dikaiopolis lives ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς (cf. the very first reading: οἰκεῖ δὲ ὁ Δικαιόπολις... ἐν τοῖς ἀγροῖς ). The gloss reads "in the country (lit., in the fields)."

We find in §41 of FGB that ἐν τῇ χώρᾳ οἰκίαι ἦσαν (exercise #8).

My question is whether or not there is a difference in meaning between these two expressions, or are they synonymous to the point ...

Like to Start New Group

I'd be interested in starting a new group to study White's First Greek Book and excerpts of Xenophon's Anabasis, with a slightly novel approach. I'd like to supplement the translation exercises in White with other exercises, and place more emphasis on reading and understanding Greek than on translation. The online exercises for Athenaze (http://web.uvic.ca/hrd/greek/) at the University of Victoria using the software "Hot Potatoes" from the same University( ...

Pronunciation Help?

Hello. I'm starting this book out very slowly and I would like to get everything right before I think about moving on.

So, there are a few letters that I'm unclear on. Think you can help a guy out? I'd appreciate it


Zeta- I'm guessing a Z sound, but the example "adze" threw me off

Iota- The examples given are pin and machine. Is this sort of a "You can do it either way you ...

Differentiating 1st-S./3rd-Pl. person in imp. ind. active

I am working through White's First Greek Book, and I have a problem. In Lesson VII, "Imperfect Indicative Active," the paradigm for this tense indicates that the suffix -ον plus the prefix ε serves to signal both the 3rd and 1st person. For each example, it gives the same conjugation for each verb in these cases. Same with the dual 2nd and 3rd person in the present indicative active: both have the suffix -ετον.

How ...

Calling everyone using First Greek Book!

Hello!

As you may have noticed when you began your First Greek Book studies here at Textkit, the available answer key only goes up to exercise 71 and does not include any of the English to Greek exercises. While I appreciate this resource I feel that if the answer key was completed in its entirely (and who doesn't love using unicode?) then the result would benefit everyone!

Thus...
I am going to compile my own ...
