Handheldclassics!!! A reality?

Hi, everybody.

Stumbled on this site: www.handheldclassics.com and it’s absolutely amazing. Basically you can have the whole of Iliad and Odyssey on your palm PC along with the English translation. Fully parsed morphology of every word from Perseus plus basic translation of every word plus links to a greek dictionary.

Does this mean "good by Cunliff and the company" or am I wrong? Is the whole idea worth it? ...

Pronunciation of the letter 'fαυ' (vau)

Hi group, I'm just starting Pharr and already I have a question. How do I pronounce the letter vau?

Or is it pronounced in another fashion completely? Many thanks, I think I going to have a lot more questions before ...

ν in Pharr paragraph 685

Can someone tell me what that ν is called that is used by Pharr in 'Homeric Greek for beginners' in paragraph 685?

It's in the sentence 'ν of course regularly becomes -ᾱ'. Or am I misreading it?

Getting a feel for the metre

Hi,

I've decided to take another crack at Homer now that I have a bit of free time but I want it to be more succesful this time around. I've got a decent grounding in the grammar, so I'm okay with (eventually) figuring out what a sentence means. My big problem was getting a sense for the rhythm of the poetry (basically, I can't tell why it is poetry) and it's something I'd really like ...
