Hi again,

I've been searching the internet for more detailed linguistic informations

about the greek dialects ( phonology, syntax etc) but I can't find anything.

Do you know some site with such informations. I don't want to buy

Buck,'s book "Greek Dialects" but I want the information inside it.

Thanx,

New Textbook Boards

We have added several new boards to encourage learners using specific textbooks to meet and help each other.

We're hoping the new boards will encourage more targeted discussions that are easier to find and follow and also to bring in new visitors who perhaps think that Textkit is a place for learning only through public domain grammars.

So if you're using any of these books, please begin posting in the respective boards.

thanks again!

Jeff

I just wanted to formally say hello to everyone and to say how glad that this place exists. I look forward to many a winter's night in front of my computer, slogging through my D'Ooge and discussing the finer points of grammar or literature with all of you. Why not some Claudian made available some day or Ammiannus Marcellinus?

Wm away for a week

Tomorrow I leave for darkest California, to that city known universally among my friends, regardless of sex or orientation, as Man Diego. There I will spend a week in the company of other Unix geeks and NT/Windows admins as we try to come up with ways to keep the intenet, or at least those portions for which we are responsible, working.

Spam is always an especial topic of discussion and venom at this annual conference, ...

Latin Poetry

Here is some Latin poetry, not to mention quite a lot of other literature, if you explore the rest of the site.

Latin : Latinity :: Greek : ?

This is making me crazy.

When you want to talk about the correct, classical quality of some random Latin text, you talk about the latinity. Then you can say things like "Cicero would never have used a subjunctive that way" and you go correct the phrasing.

I haven't been able to find an appropriate word for this in Greek which we can also use in English. My first guess was something like Helleneia, but that ...

Aoidoi.org one year old

Actually, it happened last week, but this month marks the one year anniversary of my public announcement of Aoidoi's existence.

Only about 1000 poems left to comment! Ignoring the Anthology, of course. :lol:

Buying E Books

Has anyone tried purchasing downloaded Ebooks from Amazon (esp. any Latin or Greek texbooks)? There are isn't a lot to choose from at the moment but the idea has definite appeal - cheaper, faster etc. Especially as I am now used to reading the Textkit books on my laptop.

I would be very interested to hear some feedback on this - I think the idea of Ebooks will revolutionise reading as much as the invention ...
