Declension question


I'm on Lesson VI in Pharr's book and it is explaining the second declension. My question is do nouns only belong to a single gender and declension (suppose first declension feminine
for a word like boulh/) while adjectives must have a male, female, and neuter declension? And that the adjectives gender is "chosen" out of the set of available declensions, like: kalo/j, kalh/, kalo/n--which are second declension male, first declension feminine, and second declension ...

Here at William's Grammaticarium, we've had a bit of snow. Not as much as my father, who lives in NY, who is going to get (24+ inches) later, but still. A nice little storm.

I love snow.

I also love how all the city lights are diffused during a nighttime snow storm. One can take photos with a still camera and no flash (click image for larger).

Then of course, it's all so ...

Boukman Eksperyans : Revolution

A few days ago in a used music store I picked up the album "Revolution" by the Boukman Eksperyans, a Haitian group. I was familiar with one of the songs (Baron) and it was only $6, so I went ahead and bought it. What a bargain! A few of the songs are nothing special, but this CD has some great stuff. If you want to hear some different music, I recommend this album.

The biggest ...

Two Biblical Greek Resources Online

Perhaps people are already aware of these sites, but I thought I'd post them. I just discovered them, but they seem promising.

http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/gopher/text/r ... /lxxmorph/

This is a text only site that lists all of the words of the LXX in verse order, indicates the form of the word, and gives the root. It's in code, not a Greek font, and the key requires a bit of deciphering, but ...

Spanish-Kit..it's here (almost)

Hi Everyone,

It's still very beta. I'm finalizing the site copy and getting some additional readers in place. In the next few weeks I'll get a Spanish Forum running. A long-term project is to find/develop free Spanish audio content. Oh, and I need to build some more Spanish vocabulary courses. At the top of my list is irregular verb forms.

One new and different feature is that there's an online Spanish grammar. It's online so ...

Sappho poem

This line is from Sappho and I do not understand it:

"ti/na dhu~te pei/qw mai~s s) a/ghn es san filo/para;"

my attempted translation is:

"whom now again I believe ('mai~s' I don't have a translation for) to you should bring it, beloved?"

Any help please? I'm really clueless on this one....
