Pharr §53.6

The exercise is to translate from Greek into English,


o9/te kakw=j prose/eipen A0trei/+dhj Xru/shn, to/te e0xo/lwsen, e9khbo/lon.


Although Pharr has not yet introduced the adverbial form of kakw=j yet, it seems to make more sense to me to treat kakw=j as an adverb modifying prose/eipen rather than a feminine singular genitive adjective .

My translation: When the son ...

great lines in Iliad

here are some lines i gathered while reading the iliad. Some are of proverbial character while others express the anthropology in homer - the way the epics view men, their relations to gods etc. i find all of them to be beautiful poetry. Feel free to add more!

A latin tool that would be great for greek

I saw this post in one of the latin forums.

singular vs. plural?

In Pharr §38, the exercise is to translate from Greek this sentence:

di=oj e9khbo/loj au0to\s a0ei/dei, a0ll' ou0x a9nda/nei a0/lloisi qeoi=si qumw|=. Additionally, the student is pointed to §996 and §1009.

Mr. Annis's kindly provided answer key indicates that this could be translated as "The divine free-shooter himself sings, but it doesn't please the other gods in their souls."

My question revolves around translating qumw|= as "in their souls." Isn't the form given singular?

Thanks. ...

kw=dist' ?

In the Hymn to Demeter (13), I came across this phrase: kw=dist' o)dmh=. I'm guessing that kw=dist' reflects the joining of kai/ and h(/dista; but where does the omega come from? Is there another word involved?

Being Brave in War

Greetings,

What would be proper epic idiom for a participial clause "being very brave in war"?

Here is my attempt "agathos per polemon eon"--polemon being an accusative of specification. Am I on the wrong track?

Thanks in advance!

REading Homer

how close do you think this reading is to the real accent of the ancients?

FSA (first declension) question

Is there any way to tell from the standard form of the noun (singular nominative, singular genitive ending, pronoun) whether the FSA ending is hn vs. an?

For example:
Standard Form__________Accusative Singular
boulh/, h=j, h9 _____________boulh/n
qea/, a=j, h9 ______________qea/n
qa/lassa, hj, h9 ___________qa/lassan


Thank you

(Apologies if this has already been asked & answered):
