The Sound of Ancient Greek - Classical Pronunciation

The Sound of Ancient Greek - Classical Pronunciation<br /><br />Sound clips of excerpts from Homer(Iliad), Aeschylos(Agamemnon), and Plato(Symposion).<br /><br />I don't know whether it's the most plausible sample. Just the longest I picked up in the web surfing.<br /><br />Also try the "visit-also's" there ; Ancient Greek Music and Homeric Singing.

Greek = tonal language?

Geía sou<br />I'd like to know if the accents (grave, acute, and circumflex) were pronounced as in Mandarin Chinese (high-falling, low-rising, and high-falling suddenly to low-rising again). They exist in Spanish and Latin (except the circumflex) but are not tonilised. Euxasistw' gia to boh'qhma saj

"Humanities and the Liberal Arts" by William Harri

http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/<br /><br />Web site of emeritus professor of classics at Middlebury. While there is plenty of non-classics content, the Greek and Latin sections are wonderful. Essays on random classical topics, some language and grammatical discussion. He also has commentaries (with greek text) on poems by Archilochos, Sappho, Pindar and Homer. Some Latin poets and prose, too.<br />

Is there an obscure rule, subsumed with the other rules by the concept 'Euphony of Consonants,' to which one can ascribe the present perfect active form of the verb pe/mpw being pe/pomfa? I really do not want to have to memorize six principal parts of each verb; the four principal parts of Latin verbs are hard enough to remember... (all I do is complain ;) )

I see from LSJ (http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/pt ... %3D%231212) that a)delfo/j means brother or more specifically son of the same mother.<br /><br />Does this mean it usually refers to half-brothers? If so, what about half-brothers through the father or full brothers? What were they called?

My English to Latin translations are:<br /><br /><br />1.
