pages missing?

Hi all,
I downloaded JWW's First Greek book on 13th June 2003. I was looking for a word in the greek-english dictionary (page 304) and I discovered that the dictionary starts from page 4. Then I checked the dictionary and I found other 3 pages missing (pages 15-16-17 of the dictionary). Why? Is there a new, complete, version? Have I to download the whole file again?

JWW's Para 41, #1

Hi, guys,

I think there's something wrong with the translation given for Para 41 #1:

Oi)ki/ai mikrai/ shoul d be translated as (some) houses are small,

because the adjective comes after the noun and the verb to be is to be

ommited. To say Small houses with such a structure we should say

oi)ki/ai ai) mikrai/, right?

key to Whites First Greek Book

I have noticed to errors made in Lesson VI item exercise 64.<br />Sentence 3 : verb 'bring' is in the 2nd person plural, but was<br />translated in the 3rd person singular. <br /><br />Sentence 6. the adjective 'good' follows the object<br />knives/sabres but is translated as describing shields?<br />Also the adjective is translated as 'fine' for which we have been given the adjective 'kalas' ???
