Scanning Line 1.8

Hi,
I think that I have scanned this line correctly:

ti/j t a)/r sfwe qew=n e)/ridi xune/hke ma/cesqai

- - | - u u | - u u | - u u | - u u | - -

But I would want to know why ma in ma/cesqai is long, since it is followed by a double consonant, or I am completely wrong.

homeric vocabulary frequency

In Homeric vocabularies by William Bishop Owen and Edgar Johnson Goodspeed the authors list words by the frequency they occur in the Illiad and the Odyssey; so that you have a list of words emphasizing which ones are used the most, or which ones are more important to memorize. Is there such a list available on-line?

New mailinglist?

I have Pharr's book, the wish to read Homer, but I can't seem to get started all on my own. Well, I got started, but couldn't keep it up.

Is there anyone who would like to start a new mailinglist with me, be it one without expert guidance, but just to support one another and keep going? We could always post the questions here, that we can't figure out ourselves.

Let me know!

Regards,
Adelheid

vocabulary listings

Not all verbs have all the principal parts listed.
Why are some missing principal parts indicated with a dash while others are just skipped over. See page 99 and compare e)pisseu/w and kote/w.

Pharr: Lesson 17 (line 19.4)

Hi,

It's Saturday night and i am studying Greek. Now that is cool!

In line 19.4 of the Iliad, Pharr (and Benner) have e)u/ instead of eu)=. P.A. Draper and greekgeek.org have the latter.

Which one is it?

If it's the former, do I scan it as two short syllables?

Thanking in advance (the usual suspect, of course :D ),

The two sons of Atreus, marshallers of the people(s), are entreating Priam, but he will slight them.

)Atrei/+da kosmh/tore law=n li/ssesqon Pri/amon, tou\j d' a)tima/sei.

I am not sure about the second clause.

Thank you (William :) ),

Scanning line 1.9

Hi,

I am not sure if I have scanned the following verse -- line 1.9 -- correctly:



Lhtou=j kai\ Dio\j ui(o/j. o( ga\r basilh=i xolwqei\j

- - | - u u | - u u | - u u | - u u | - -

I am doubtful about the third foot because of the pause in the verse.

Thanks,

~PeterD
