Konstantinos from Athens, Hellas - Introducing myself

Greetings from Athens to all,

I am Konstantinos 45yo, a native speaker of Modern Greek livng in Athens. Having graduated from high school back in 1990, with a concentration on the equivalent of A - levels in Ancient Greek and Latin. Unfortunately, my course of life kept me separated from both since then.

As a travel consultant for over 20 years, I am currently experiencing a desire to come close to the ancient languages once ...

Another Greekless Fly-By-Night Newbie

Greetings !!

I have been a part time student of ancient history for a little while and an amateur historian for the last 12 years stumbling around in the dark of Greek inscriptions and papyri fragments. I joined this forum to get some advice on a number of Greek language issues relating to my studies.

The first one involves one of the graffiti inscriptions from Dura Europos. I am happy to provide pics, and share ...

Odd-ball introduction


I am not quite sure why I am trying to learn Latin. Without no special gift to learn languages and being not particularly systematic I am most likely doomed to fail. Still it seems fun to me, as this is something completely different what I am doing for living. Perhaps designing LTE system and learning Latin are both speaking Greek.

BTW: Did Rome legionaries have a similar quip like S.N.A.F.U.?

Introduction: Dave Burt

Hi, I'm Dave Burt, currently studying part time at Ridley Melbourne. I finished an intro to Greek a few years ago and Hebrew last year and intend to keep growing my proficiency, but slowly because I have limited time after family, work and study commitments. Nevertheless I'm using Duolingo for modern Greek and Hebrew, and listening to audio readings (Various Koine/Reconstructed NT recordings and Haktuvim for Hebrew), and have started Buth's courses for both languages. ...

How did Monastics Learn Language

I am fascinated the methods that monastics used to learn language. As many of you probably know, Irish monastics were particularly learned. Many of them, besides their native tongue, knew Latin, Greek, and sometimes Hebrew. Is anyone familiar with the ways that they learned language?

Νικόλαος Νικολαόυ, Τεξτκὶτ θαμῶσι εὐ πράττειν

Τοὺς τῆς ἑλληνικῆς γλώττης ἐνθάδε φίλους χαιρετῶ. Νικόλαος μὲν ἐμοὶ τὸ ὄνομα, γλωττολόγος δὲ ἐμοὶ ἡ παιδεία. Εἰς τὸν Θησαυρὸν τῆς Ἑλληνικῆς Γλώττης (TLG) ἐπὶ δεκαεπτὰ ἔτη ἠργασάμην, τὸν δὲ αὐτόματον ἐκείνου τῶν λέξεων ἀναλυτὴν ἀνέπτυσσον. Ἱστολόγιον περὶ τῶν ἑλληνικῶν καὶ περὶ τῆς γλωττολογίας γράφω, ἄλλ’ οὐκ ἔξεστί μοι ἔτι ἐνθάδε τὸν σύνδεσμον κοινοποιεῖν, καθότι καινός εἰμι. Ἐκεῖ πρότινος τὴν τοῦ Δαμοίτα ὑμῶν ἐσχολίακα μετάφρασιν τῆς εἰς Γεττισβοῦργον ὁμιλίας.
