Future Tense with Middle-Passive Endings

I'm working with Schoder's book and there's something I don't understand.

There are some active (not deponent) verbs that have active endings in the present stem.

Then in the future stem, they suddenly have Middle-Passive endings. Do this mean that in the future they still have active meaning?

If so, my question then is how, for those verbs, is the Future Middle-Passive expressed?

Thanks for any help...

Translation help needed for Iliad

Apologies for not including the accents and breathings for the greek text, but I wrote this on my ipad and have not yet found an app that will let me type ancient greek on it.

I have need of translation help for line 97 from book one of the Iliad:

The Monroe and Allen OCT text has this:
ουδ᾽ ο γε πριν Δαναοισιν αεικεα λοιγον απωσει

A literal translation of this seems pretty straightfoward:

M. L. West's edition of the Iliad

Does anyone know what happened to West's edition of the Iliad? It doesn't appear to be available for purchase at any online site.
I know that there were some critical reviews of it when it was first published, but was it really so bad that it would go out of print so soon?

"Scanned" text of Homeric Greek

Hi-has anybody seen the scanned version of Pharr-Homeric Greek? My old paperback copy is really falling apart-need a new copy, & i notice the "scanned" version is cheaper than the original. Wonder about the quality though, if it's quality printing or not. Any thoughts? Thank you!

What does face=spionic mean? Is that the code to indicate that the SPIonic font will be used? In any case, although I have the SPIonic font installed on my MacBookPro (OS X 10.6.6), enabling me to read the SPIonic font on the Cornell College Athenaze Resources website, I see only letters in the Roman alphabet in the Pharr Discussions by Chapter links, e.g., viewtopic.php?t=3225 : A)trei/+dhj. Is there something ...

Audio component for Greek?

Greetings everyone,

I have been lurking around on the forums for a long time while I have been studying Hebrew. Now I am on my way to learning Greek (classical and Koine, and little Latin when I get bored) and I have no real concept of Greek pronunciation. I was curious if there is an audio component for Homeric Greek or any complementary resources. I have searched the forums and these resources seem either scant, ...

Homeric Greek study group?

I wanted to know if there are any Homeric Greek study groups around.

Eh, are there?

I have "A Reading Course in Homeric Greek" and the Pharr PDF, so anybody wanna get friendly? I hoped a few people here would care to start one up if there isn't a group already. I just found out how awesome skype is as a tool. And, how awesome would it be to have regular Homeric Greek parties (wut, ...

Chp XLV- line 201 scansion

When scanning Iliad 1. 201 there is an extra syllable, or so it seems. The third to last syllable, the omicron of prosheda needs to be ignored for the meter to work out. The West scanned text seems to have left it out. I guess the question I have is should it be left out? If so, why does it not count towards the meter?
