Lesson VI: ἀγλαὰ ἄποινα

When looking at section 26, exercise #1, I ran across this oddity:

ἀγλαὰ ἄποινα

I thought to myself: "Well, I bet I'll never see these two words juxtaposed in Homer without an elision."

Does anyone else agree? Are there any examples contrary to my suspicion?

GTSS Working?

Hi All,

Could some folks from an active group, e.g., pharr-d, please see if GTSS is now working? For several weeks now it has been failing with a "403 Forbidden" error.

It might be best if you first emptied your browser's cache, sometimes known as "deleting temporary internet files."

Please let me know outcome. Thanks.

Indefinite Relative Pronoun ὅστις, ἥτις, ὅ τι

Section 776 of Pharr says:

Pharr wrote:The indefinite relative pronoun (ὅστις, ἥτις, ὅ τι) whoever, whichever, whatever, is a compound of the simple relative (ὅς, ἥ, ὅ) and the indefinite τὶς, τὶ, each part of which is declined separately (or sometimes only the latter part).

He does not then give the actual declension. Would this be the correct way to decline it:

οὗτεο ἧστεο οὗτεο
ὡτέῳ ἡτέῳ ὡτέῳ
ὅντινα ἥντινα ὅ ...

It would seem that my ISP has allowed its domain to expire. Attempts to access GTSS return a "suspended page" error.

I hope this is mere oversight, one that will be corrected shortly.

In the meantime, I apologize for any inconvenience. I will keep an eye on the greekgeek.org website and let you know when it is again available.
