Strategy to read Pharr

I read the Iliad 5 years ago in French, and always thought that reading it in the original Greek must be even more enjoyable. My aim is to be reading the Iliad in Greek in a not so distant future.

Missing vocative in first declension

In Pharr, the paradigm for nouns of the first declension ending in α, such as θάλλασσα, are shown without giving the singular vocative.
