Word Order and Paragraph 47

O Textkit! What an excellent site!!

On another thread (http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic.php?t=217), Koala, has
begun to put up answers for discussion. This is really helpful for a beginner like me. However, I have one or two questions..

134

xai/rete

I am working through White, and I have a question (I'll probably be back later with many more).

The sentence is from 134: kai\ Tissafe/rnhj diaba/llei ton Ku=ron pro\j to\n a)delfo\n w(j e)pibouleu/ei au)tw|

My translation goes: and Tissaphernes slanders Cyrus ... that he is plotting against him.

My problems are:

- How would you translate pro\j to\n a)delfo\n. I guess it is the accusative which surprises me here.

- I fail to see ...

New Greek student finding trouble....

Hello, everyone. I just joined this wonderful community today, and I've been taking advantage of the incredible useful resources posted on the site. Kudos for this; it's exactly what I've been looking for. Anyway, I consider myself a student of language, but other than a terrible first-year Latin class, a year of French and two years of Spanish, I don't have much formal training. So I find myself needing clarification on some of the stuff ...

Question

I'm working out of the White, and came across this sentence to translate, which confused me a bit:

keleu/sei to\n strathgo\n tou\j a)nqrw/pouj lu/ein.

Does this translate as "He commanded the general to destroy the men"? Or "He commanded the general; he destroys the men"? Neither seem right. :?

imperfect and aorist?

hello everyone

I am a little confused over the imperfect and the first aorist tense. The example in the white book for imperfect is 'I loosed' (I can see how 'I was loosing' suggests continuance) ,this is the same as the example for aorist 'I loosed'. How would you distinguish between the two, i can see the greek spelling is different but how would you distinguish it within an english sentance? just for reference! I ...

Any study groups for White's First Greek book starting?

Hi all,

I am new to this site and am interested in the idea of a study group. I am just now downloading White's First Greek book and am wondering if there may be any interest in a study group for Greek newbies like myself. I would love an opportunity to learn with others on the same level as myself to share support and insight. Also to vent when needed.

Thanks,

Shawn
