Toughest Greek you've read....?

I thought I'd ask y'all what the toughest Greek you've ever read is? For me...if would probably have to be Sophopcles (O.R.) or Philo. As far as the New Testament goes....I just read through Hebrews and it kicked my butt fairly well....Lukan stuff isn't nearly as hard as people make it out to be (IMHO), and James can be a bit thick.

Well......how about you??

Looking for languages with nasal vowels

I’d like to hear what those ancient nasal vowels sounded like. Yes, you could use the theory of just nasalizing the regular vowels to get nasal vowels but.... I’m having some difficulties with Modern French and that approach.

Adjectives

In the case of an adjective such as a)/dikoj - which has 2 sets of endings (masc/fem and neuter) in the positive degree, and forms comparatives in -teroj and superlatives in -tatoj - does it retain 2 sets of endings in the comparative and superlative degrees, or does it form separate masculine, feminine and neuter forms?

G'day

Just a post to introduce myself. (According to local forum customs. :) )

I live in Melbourne.

I'm a university student. And I've just started learning ancient Greek independently (using John Williams White's book).





In High School I did two years of Latin, so learning the grammar should (hopefully) be easyish. 8)

Logic and Infinity

Hello everyone, I hope that you accept me as a new member of this wonderful forum. I also hope that you accept my broken English :oops: because it is not my mother tongue.

linking verbs (sum and esse)

Forum:

Now that I understand the function of an infinitive: What in the world does this mean?:

--The infinitive of sum is esse, to be.

This line stems from a chapter of my study text. It also speaks of these words as linking verbs. Can an example or two be provided in context?

Orpheus et Eurydice

I have posted this topic, regarding Virgil - Orpheus et Eurydice, in the Open Board since it requires some analysis of the English rather than the latin. Here is the English for the Latin that I have covered so far. I should be very grateful if some one might answer any of the questions below!
