the high resolution printer friendly format of Pharr

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?
