Hexameter Blues

Hello people, I'm glad to have found you.

I'm an apprentice bard, and I started learning the Iliad last Christmas (and greek along the way). I'm stuck with Homer's hexameters, trying to put stresses, pitches and length of vowels together. I started with the convention of using the accents as stress, which probably works fine with prose, but not with poetry: first because I cannot stress a short vowel without making it long in the ...

Study Groups for Pharr

Hey,

I noticed one of the pharr study groups finished (it is beyond the last day in the schedule). When will another one start up again? I'm interested in joining one.

Thanks.

Needed a workbook

I would like to have more excersises instead of just those in "Pharr's homeric Greek"

I find the more excersises i do the more I hold onto mentally. However, I am not ready to push forward until I work more at the lesson I am on.

For Instance working in First Declension there is singular dual and plural Paradigms. Teh next lesson deals with verb congugation.

I still want to work more with the paradigms ...

Digamma?

Do modern editions of the Iliad contain any digammas at all?

Line 33 is definitely missing a digamma in e1dveisen, and, as a result, the line no longer scans. Is it known whether performances in 5th century Athens would have involved the digamma-sound in words such as this?

Lesson 4 Par. 16 number1

In lesson 4 of Pharr's book (paragragh 16) is translations into english from greek.

I transelate it as (The good godess has a beutiful plan) the kalh\ qea\ is in the nom. sing. case and the boulh\n kalh\n is in the acc sing. case.

however in in Annis' key it is translated as "does the beautiful godess have good plans?"


My Question is shouldn't it be singular 'plan' and is the "does the... " come ...

Word accents

Ok, I'm stuck. The accenting rules of Homeric Greek are stumping me. I read this web page http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~ancgreek/accenthtml/accentuation.html
but I still can't figure out how to accent simple words like nou=soj through the various paradigms. Can someome illustrate the exact reasoning behind the accenting of that particular word with all of its cases?

If I get good enough and detailed responses, I'm willing to collate all of them, with examples and excersizes, and make a ...
