Attic and Homeric

I have a book on Attic greek, but I really would like to read homer. How different are both dialects? It's better to learn one after the other, or would be nice to learn both together? or just one?
thanks

Quid and Quod

I'm having some trouble with the pronouns quid and quod. It seems to me that Wheelock's uses the former in places where it should use the latter. For example, I translate SA4 in chapter 30 (Nunc scio quid sit amor) as "Now I know what may be love." Shouldn't the Latin word for "what" be a relative pronoun instead of an interrogative?

Thanks to anyone who can help.

frequency list

Is there a list available that shows how often Homer used a particular word?
It would help in determining how much effort to put into memorizing that word.

Irascor?

Please bear with me...

Why do infintives like 'to grow hungry' end in -r instead of -er?

This verb has not entered into my grammatical studies so far and muddles my translations!

Okay, this one might be new to you...

I came up with an idea for a program that allowed you to enter words and their translations, which could then be searched either way. It's more complex than a database, since some words mean more than one thing (moneo, as an example). So if you were trying to find the translation for 'cogitare,' you could enter it and the program would spit out the various meanings. You could also search from English to Latin ...
