Scanning Homer

Inspired by the iambics and the Will's Intro to Greek Meter (great piece Will!!) I'm trying my hand at Homer. I 'm slowly working through Pharr. I have some doubts about scanning this line however:

ˉ ˉ | ˉ ˉ | ˉ ˉ | ˉ ˉ | ˉ ˘ ˘ | ˉ ˉ |

Is that about right? It seems rather loose for dactyls...

But my question is what rules, if any, are available to let me know that pollwn goes with kakwn? Would I know that they form the phrase ...

Dictionary compilation

Is there a simple piece of software that allows one to compile a simple dictionary for print? Or even a Word macro. I did much searching, but at no avail.

COMP: gardening iambics

Chad

i'm giving it a test run and I am liking it very much. However, I'm stuck!!

(perhaps this ought to be moved to the greek forum at this point)

I'm trying to say:

standing in the pleasant garden I
am receiving all the gifts of Apollo (i.e. sunrays)

Online Latin Courses

(I did a search of the forums but turned up nothing)

I've seen the Cambridge Latin Course online but I wonder if you know of, or can recommend, any others. Have you tried them? I can study at home and Textkit is a great resource but doing a course provides some motivation which is difficult to get as a self-study student.
