Demonstrative Pronouns - Lesson VIII

Hello,

I have some questions concerning pronouns.....

Basically, how can o(, h(, to/ mean BOTH 'this', and 'that'? I see that it seemingly means 'this' much more often than 'that' and kei=noj specifically means 'that'. When would I use the former or the latter when trying to represent 'that'?

Also, what exactly is the relationship between table 765 and 774? I'm not sure what to use for 'this'.... The lesson forces me to learn 774, ...

Cases in Greek

Hey everyone, I'm working through the different cases (or at least some of them) presented in Athenaze, and is it just me, or does it seem like an awful lot to swallow at one time? Does anyone have an indepth recommendation for a chart of sorts for the different cases/genders/types of nouns/adjectives? Thanks again for your guy's help!!

Chapter 7 P&R #5

Salvte descipulii socii

P&R #5 reads as follows:
Quando homines satis virtutis habebunt.

virtutis is in the genitive singular. Does satis take a genetive much like many prepositions take the ablative?

I translate this sentence as: When will men have enough of wisdom? Meaning, haven't they had enough already?! Habere is a transative verb, so shouldn't vertutis be in the accusative, virtutem?

Valete,

The verb estin (he/she/it is) and related verbs

Hey everyone, quick question about this verb. In a sentence such as "He is waiting for the oxen," is it necessary to use "estin (sorry greek fonts don't work on my cpu)" or is "he is" contained in the verb for waiting? I know that most of the time it is like this, but are there exceptions? thanks for helping!

Reverse etymology

Hi All,

In my efforts to develop my beginner's vocabulary i, not surprisingly, find words with a clear relation to modern English the easiest. Dico, dicere; mitto, mittere are easy examples. Such words are so obviously linked to modern words i hardly need to look up the etymologies to verify them.

However, other words may well be the basis of modern English words which i haven't managed to guess. It would seem to me that ...
