Lesson 97

Odyssey passage exercise

Corrigendum: in line #172, "δὴ" should read "δ´".

#168 ἤμος δ´ ἠριγένεια φάνη ῥοδοδάκτυλος Ἠώς,
#169 καὶ τότε πῦρ ἀνέκαιε καὶ ἤμελγε κλυτὰ μῆλα,
#170 πάντα κατὰ μοῖραν, καὶ ὑπ´ ἔμβρυον ἧκεν ἑκάστῃ.
#171 αὐτὰρ ἐπεὶ δὴ σπεῦσε πονησάμενος τὰ ἃ ἔργα,

new edition of Clyde Pharr's "Homeric Greek"

THe University of Oklahoma Press published a new revised edition of Pharr's book on Homeric Greek in 2012. It has been revised by Paula Debnar, who teaches at Mt. Holyoke. The first many lessons have been rewritten, to have more full explanation of grammar, the announcement reports, and the print and the Greek font is easier to read, a little larger, is what I read.

Has anyone used this new edition? How did you like ...

Getting started with Greek -- general advice

I'm flirting with the idea of getting started with Homeric Greek.

I have good knowledge of modern Russian and a smattering of Latin that still sort of works for simple tasks. So case and participles and some syntax that's rather unlike English are okay with me, not too scary.

However, I kind of have no idea how to get started, or what a reasonable course of self-study would be. I'd like to read Homer (and ...

Materials for reading Homer in Greek

I have long wanted to read Homer in the original. Now, the timing is coming for me to make that a reality.

Which books are recommended for self-study?

Is the Pharr book the best launching point? ...how does something like Beetham's Beginning Greek with Homer compare? Amazon seems to suggests that the latter is better for auto-didacts.

What about vocabulary books - it seems that Pharr has one but then there is one from Cunliffe ...

A mono-lingual Greek Lexicon for Homer now available

I just posted my Amazon review:

http://www.amazon.com/Homeric-lexicon-A ... ewpoints=1

As I say there, you can preview very much of the book on the Amazon cite. (Just keep on hitting the "surprise me tab" under "look inside.")

Here I will only add that even after the publication of this book, for which I am grateful, there remains a huge need for Ancient Greek dictionaries in Ancient Greek. Really, a modern ...

Learning the Greek Alphabet

Hi all,

I can't help but feel that the following questions must have been discussed previously in this forum, but I could not find anything when searching. Apologies then, if I'm asking dull questions that have been discussed ad nauseam.

I'm going to attempt to learn Greek on my own, starting with Homer. I picked up the new, 2012, edition of Pharr and cracked it open last night. As you know, the first challenge is ...

Homeric Greek pronunciation

I'm new to Homeric Greek, in fact I'm new to all Ancient Greek, and had a question with some pronunciation.

When I learned a little about Classical Greek, I was told that φ was pronounced like an English 'f', and θ like an English 'th', but my Homeric Greek textbook says that they're pronounced 'p-h' and 't-h' respectively. I'm having some trouble understanding how ἴφθιμος would have been pronounced. Would it still be pronounced with ...
