newbe

Just stumbled accross this website while looking for some greek conjugation tools, I didn't think there was anything like it around. I'm currently a student at SUNY Albany where I'm studying latin and Greek. Unfortunately greek is only offered at the 500 level as an independant study and only if you have prior experience. Needless to say I lied to get in, and the prof didn't check. Besides studying these two I have minors in ...

HELP: power and pronouns

HELP! PLEASE!

I'm writing a paper on how power is displayed in relationships by the use of a plural form of the pronoun "you" in a number of european languages. i know that these languages get their "voi/Lei" or "vous" or "vos/usted" from the "vos" in latin that showed up during the 4th century.

nekron Afrodith?

from the "Visual Cue Cards to Accompany THE ANCIENT GREEKS SPEAK TO US" :
nekro\n A)frodi/th Dionu/sou di/xa kai\ Dh/mhtroj.

nekro/n: adj. dead, neut. sg.
Afrodi/th: fem. sg.
Dionu/sou: Dio/nusoj, masc. sg. gen.
Dhmhtroj: Dhmh/thr, fem. sg. gen.
di/xa: in two ways
kai/: and

I can hardly find a match of grammatical construction in this proverb.

the aorist and the perfect tense?

What's the difference between these two tenses?


Also, is the Greek perfect tense conceptually different from the English equivalent in any way?




EDIT: Just to clarify; by 'differences between tenses' I meant in terms of what verbs of those tenses mean (not how they're conjugated :) ).

Verb form ?

Hi,

Would the 1st pers. aor. ind. mid./pas. of qea/omai 'to gaze' be e)qeasa/mhn? I entered the aorist form in the Perseus morph. analysis tool, but I get an error massage.

Thanks
