peira/zwmen gra/phein e)n th^ E(llh/nika A)rchei/a



I was thinking that it might be fun to start a topic of writing to one another in Classical Greek (it seems like all of these have been Latin) . . . So if anyone wishes, they can respond.

? on accent

Quick question. In the Woodhouse dictionary, the accent on the word number is on the antepenult (a)/riqmoj); however, in the Little LS, the accent is on the ultima. Which one is correct? Are they both correct?

Thanks

Comparison between suus and is (Exercise 117)

I was wondering if someone can straighten me out on some word ordering.

Compare the following two sentences (#5 and #7 from ex. 117)

English: "Another woman is calling her chickens (not her own)".
Key's translation: Alia femina eius gallinas vocat.

English: "The Gaul praises his arms (not his own)".
Key's translation: Gallus arma eius laudat.

In both cases we are using the non-reflexive possesive eius. However, in #5 the key places eius before the ...

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 compare French nasal vowels with another (living) language that has nasal vowels, but I don’t know of any. Old French has quite a few more nasal vowels than modern French. 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.

The IPA transcription is ...

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)
