Word accents

Ok, I'm stuck. The accenting rules of Homeric Greek are stumping me. I read this web page http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~ancgreek/accenthtml/accentuation.html
but I still can't figure out how to accent simple words like nou=soj through the various paradigms. Can someome illustrate the exact reasoning behind the accenting of that particular word with all of its cases?

If I get good enough and detailed responses, I'm willing to collate all of them, with examples and excersizes, and make a ...

Homer-L?

I'd also love to hear of any other ...

That was several years ago. and much of what I learned then has been forgotten.

So ...

Demonstrative Pronouns - Lesson VIII

Hello,

I have some questions concerning pronouns.....

Basically, how can o(, h(, to/ mean BOTH 'this', and 'that'? I see that it seemingly means 'this' much more often than 'that' and kei=noj specifically means 'that'. When would I use the former or the latter when trying to represent 'that'?

Also, what exactly is the relationship between table 765 and 774? I'm not sure what to use for 'this'.... The lesson forces me to learn 774, ...
