kai usage

So, suppose I want to say something like "many dreadful noises" (accusative), would I say it like this:

polla\j deina\j klagga/j

or like this:

polla\j kai\ deina\j klagga/j?

I think I'm supposed to do the latter form....

I translated this,

We who are dead to sin, how yet shall we live in it?

The pronoun threw me off. Any comments would be helpful.

Initially, my comments are these:

Interrogative sentence #1: "nomen" is the accusative singular, and "filiae" is the dative singular leading into the genitive singular "Latonae." Is analysis ...

Any study groups for White's First Greek book starting?

Hi all,

I am new to this site and am interested in the idea of a study group. I am just now downloading White's First Greek book and am wondering if there may be any interest in a study group for Greek newbies like myself.

In the pasture of this world...


In the pasture of this world, I endlessly push aside the tall grasses in search of the bull.
Following unnamed rivers, lost upon the interpenetrating paths of distant mountains,
My strength failing and my vitality exhausted, I cannot find the bull.
I only hear the locusts chirring through the forest at night.

Reverse synergy?

Any ideas on how the word subiata works in the following quote?

subiata quicunque parte integrante tollitur totum

I think the translation is roughly: if you take away an essential part you take away the whole but how the first word operates is not clear.

Semper fidelis,
