JWW Answer Key Supplement

I've decided to make up questions to the statements given as answers in the JWW Answer Key as presented on the following web page:
http://www.ellopos.net/elpenor/study/de ... swer%20Key

I have also translated the questions into English and placed the translation at the end of the questions.

Since I am learning Greek, I would appreciate it if someone more expert than I could take a look at my effort and make ...

Does anybody use VocabWorks?

I'm hoping somebody has already made up a complete or near complete set of vocabs for White's book in VocabWorks. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Lesson XV - Primary Tenses Question

I cannot figure out what the primary tenses are for. Are they similar to reflexive verbs in spanish, where the suffix describes the person to whom the action is taken? If so, then "lelukasi" would mean "I have broken them"?

Is this correct, or am I way off?

θύω -- past perfect


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 ??

Vocabulary Drill Program for First Greek Book

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. After clicking on the link, click on the "Start presentation" button on the top right to begin if it didn't automatically skip to the Start Presentation screen ...

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 ...
