new and unable to give this thread a snazzy title

i joined about a week ago, but haven't introduced myself yet, so here goes...

i'm erin, 19, from florida. last fall, i was in the middle of taking my first semester of latin in school when i had to withdraw. it was a real shame too, cos i loved it enough to decide to be a classics major (i'd been toying with the idea, but wasn't sure yet when i registered). i doubt i'll be ...

Beta Testers Wanted

Hi All,

For the last two years I have on and off been writing Windows-based software that 'assists' in the translation, annotation, and printing of ancient greek.

A couple of our generous peers here at Textkit have already begun beta-testing this software. And I am now looking for more volunteers. :D

If you are interested; and are a user of Internet Explorer release 6+, please visit ...

Latin or Greek?

Hello, I was under the impression I wanted to learn latin. And when I searched on google for information textkit was the first to come up and seems to hold the possibility of being an excellent resource.

However I was perplexed at the first page offering ancient greek lessons.

My goal is to learn a new language and I figured latin would give me an edge in moving on to others. Is this still so ...

Modern to Ancient Greek et alii

I know nearly nothing about Modern Greek, and I have been wondering if one can make a Modern Greek word (say τηλεόραση) conform to the grammatical structure (and dignity) of Attic. I hear that Modern Greek still has a case system.

Oh, and could someone give me a definitive character map of SP Ionic, please.

create accounts but do not post - why so?

Anyone notice how many members create forum accounts but they do not post. You don't need an account to view the threads so I'm not sure why this happens.

My only thoughts are that perhaps visitors get confused with subscribing to the newsletter and registering in the forum. You need a newsletter subscription to download the keys.

The other thought is that I ask people to register on the download page. But that's with the ...

Greek Teachers' Corner

Did I or anybody posted this already?


Various teaching materials for Greek.

Most of the materials are not complete, however. I think they are only teasers.

Looking for an online catalog/list of Greek learning books

I was at a used bookstore the other day, and I saw a very nice (older, certainly out of print) book for learners of Greek. This book's strategy was to teach Greek by making the student start reading right away. There weren't many pages devoted to explanations of grammar, just reading passages. The first half of the book contained short readings (just one or a few paragraphs) and some brief exercises, and the second half ...

The Mathos Project

Hi all :)

The Mathos Project is an ongoing Ancient Greek learning aid online. Being led by Dr. Mirjam Plantinga of the University of Wales Lampeter's Department of Classics, the project is aimed at beginners level students wishing to learn Greek.

I'm going to be administrating the project from a technical aspect come this October, so I'd like to know if there is anything you'd like to ...

Violated Copyrights on Textkit?

In another forum, someone asked if we could type out the practice sentences from Wheelock for him, so he wouldn't have to buy the book. Benissimus declined, questioning the legality of such an operation. I agree with him.

But we do this all the time anyway. What about when users of Wheelock posts the questions and their attempts, and then ask for feedback? Are they not still duplicating a copyrighted text?

For example, I suspect ...
