Amygdalos

Yesterday afternoon when I was eating almond nuts I suddenly wished to know its greek name. (That was partly because I was pretending to teach my daugher the name of what I was eating. :) )
And I found that it was a)mugda/loj which was very close to the name of Queen of Nabu in Starwars Ep. I., Amidala. Do you guys think Lukas had that in ...

The origin of the word "quantum"

I guess this word has a Latin origin.

Can anyone here shed some light on it?

Pharr's "Homeric Greek" copyright 1920?? (public d

I just ordered a worn old copy of Pharr's "Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners," after which I noticed the copyright date is 1920, according to the seller's description. If the description is correct, wouldn't that mean this edition is now in the public domain?

Sadly, some of the pages have become discolored over time.
(But the price was unbeatable!)

finally!!!!

After nearly two years of futile search, I have finally found a really great used bookstore in this city.

It doesn't have as much classical as my favourite store (which is in Regina so I hardly ever get to go there), but it has some really good stuff and lots of different languages, old and rare books, collectors items, etc. They also boast a HUGE selection of koine, hebrew, biblical studies, theology, etc. I could ...

Greek accents

Hi Will,

If you have seen the newly published (2003) "A New Short Guide to the Accentuation of Ancient Greek" by Philomen Probert (Bristol Classical Press), I'd like to hear how useful you'd find it for someone who is just nearing the end of Hansen & Quin.

I discovered it by reading a recent Bryn Mawr Classical review of the book and am considering whether I'd benefit from using it.

Thanks.

BSD § 47 p. 21 Ex II.4

I translated "The farmer gives her daughter water" to "Agricola filiae agricolae aquam dat" but the key presents "Agricola filiae aquam dat", that I would translate back "The farmer gives water to the daughter", not stating whose daughter would receive water.

Anyone can explain why my answer (an odd one, indeed) is not the correct one, and why the correct one is correct?

Thank you very much.
