A latin tool that would be great for greek

I saw this post in one of the latin forums.

http://people.hofstra.edu/faculty/Ilaria_Marchesi/

I loved it, how dificult would it be to do the same for Pharr???

I love the ancient Greek text manager but this link to the latin is quite a nice tool.

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?

I am trying to learn but I don't sound anything like this fellow, and I am trying to stress the accents.

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):

Textkit versus study

there are days when self discipline is totally gone. I find myself with my books open paper and pens ready to to begin and textkit forums open reading every possible post new and archived and noticing my time for study has just up and gone.

I presume I am not the only one that does this.

I can't get it to agree with anything.
As refering to Priam does not work for he is the subject, and as refering to Helen does not work because she is not masc.
