Diaeresis

Hi folks,

I've been working on memorizing the opening lines of the Iliad as Pharr suggests, and just realized I might be mis-scanning line 3.

In the Pharr text, I was reading Αιδι as having two syllables, the first of which is long because it's a dipthong.

But now I'm looking at other versions, like at Perseus, and they all print a diaeresis mark over that first iota, making the word three syllables (two short ...

Back from an Odyssey

Greetings,

I am pleased to see my login still works!

It's been half an age since last I posted here, er, that is to
say, more than a year. A lot of time was spent traveling
throughout the mountains of northern California and southern
Oregon, and during that time I took with me my little Iliad
Loebs, you know those nifty books with the original to one side
and the translation to the other? Though ...

Scansion of the Iliad

I am atempting to learn Homeric Greek by first learning how to recite the Iliad, line by line, and by parsing every single form, as well as getting its meaning. I want to do this for at least the first, hopefully the first four books. The problem for me is that, while I am able to come up with a scansion that fits, eventually, every line, I would truly like to know when I am ...

Aoidoi.org: Hexameter Localization

The next time some commentator says "this word is emphatic because it's located here in the line", check the localization tables: Localization in the Hexameter.
