Much Appreciated. 8)

Best textbook for someone interested in learning Greek?

My question is twofold: first, I'm looking for advice on the best textbook on Ancient Greek designed for the student who wants to learn on his own; second, I'm wondering if anyone knows if an answer key exists for Chase and Phillips A New Introduction to Greek This is the textbook from which I first studied Greek, and I actually managed to work my way through the entire text.

tollere

1) I find tollere an interesting verb because its perfect active, sustuli, is so differently spelled from its present active.
I notice the ferre group of verbs uses a 'tuli' base in its perfect active so I wonder if tollere and ferre are related.

2) Concerning the subjunctive mood, certain verbs look identical to the future active indicative mood, like agam (I will lead) and agam (Let me lead, if iussive). These two expressions have ...

Golden apple

Hiya Greeks. I need this for a painting I'm doing.

As you will recall, an apple of pure Hesperian gold was thrown down by Eris, when all the full-faced presence of the gods ranged in the halls of Peleus; the gleaming rind of which was inscribed with the words For the most fair. A feud thereupon arose, with question unto whom it were due, Herè, Aphrodite and Pallas each claiming this meed of fairest. And ...

Griesbach/scholz text

I realize this is more a textual criticism question than a Greek Q, but what can anyone tell me about the Griesbach Text and the Scholz text? In my slim readings these men vascilated in their theories on criticism and I'm not really sure where the texts bearing their names stand in relation to W&H.

Thanks in advance

TADW_Elessar omnibus sodalibus s.d.

Hattrick pediludium interretiale est ubi lusores vendere et emere atque cum multissimis hostibus totius orbis terrarum in certamen venire potes.

indirect questions

If I'm right, indirect questions are the question side of indirect statements, though they use subjunctive verbs and not the Accusative + Infinitive construction. My question is this:

Vident quid faciat. = They see what he is doing.

But vident is a complete thought in itself, so why does Latin not say:

Vident quod faciat.

Also, if I want to say, 'We know who she is,' is this correct:

Nescimus quis sit.

Te gratias.
