Beta Testers Wanted

Hi All,

For the last two years I have on and off been writing Windows-based software that 'assists' in the translation, annotation, and printing of ancient greek.

A couple of our generous peers here at Textkit have already begun beta-testing this software. And I am now looking for more volunteers.

If you are interested; and are a user of Internet Explorer release 6+, please visit http://www.greekgeek.org. Once there, in ...

lacrima et annus

hey,

I'm looking for possible synonyms for lacrima and annus.

Specifically, I want to find a way to make the ablative plural of "tears" rhyme with the ablative singular of "year". So right now I have anno and lacrimis, which of course do not rhyme.

Any ideas?

I wanted to check Perseus but it appears to be down right now...

Latin or Greek?

Hello, I was under the impression I wanted to learn latin. And when I searched on google for information textkit was the first to come up and seems to hold the possibility of being an excellent resource.

However I was perplexed at the first page offering ancient greek lessons.

My goal is to learn a new language and I figured latin would give me an edge in moving on to others. Is this still so ...

Modern to Ancient Greek et alii

I know nearly nothing about Modern Greek, and I have been wondering if one can make a Modern Greek word (say τηλεόραση) conform to the grammatical structure (and dignity) of Attic. I hear that Modern Greek still has a case system.

Oh, and could someone give me a definitive character map of SP Ionic, please.

Grand Finale

I am nearing the completion of my Latin studies in school for this year, but as I am self taught I have no available form of final test. I have worked through the first and second part of D'Ooge and am seeking a reasonably comprehensive Latin to English translation test.

Please post any suggestions on how to find/make a Latin final.

P.S. the advisor correcting any test doesn't know much Latin so an answer key ...

create accounts but do not post - why so?

Anyone notice how many members create forum accounts but they do not post. You don't need an account to view the threads so I'm not sure why this happens.

My only thoughts are that perhaps visitors get confused with subscribing to the newsletter and registering in the forum. You need a newsletter subscription to download the keys.

The other thought is that I ask people to register on the download page. But that's with the ...

Greek Teachers' Corner

Did I or anybody posted this already?

http://www-unix.oit.umass.edu/~glawall/grkteach.html

Various teaching materials for Greek.

Most of the materials are not complete, however. I think they are only teasers.

Looking for an online catalog/list of Greek learning books

I was at a used bookstore the other day, and I saw a very nice (older, certainly out of print) book for learners of Greek. This book's strategy was to teach Greek by making the student start reading right away. There weren't many pages devoted to explanations of grammar, just reading passages. The first half of the book contained short readings (just one or a few paragraphs) and some brief exercises, and the second half ...
