Greek accents

Hi Will,

If you have seen the newly published (2003) "A New Short Guide to the Accentuation of Ancient Greek" by Philomen Probert (Bristol Classical Press), I'd like to hear how useful you'd find it for someone who is just nearing the end of Hansen & Quin.

I discovered it by reading a recent Bryn Mawr Classical review of the book and am considering whether I'd benefit from using it.

BSD § 47 p. 21 Ex II.4

I translated "The farmer gives her daughter water" to "Agricola filiae agricolae aquam dat" but the key presents "Agricola filiae aquam dat", that I would translate back "The farmer gives water to the daughter", not stating whose daughter would receive water.

Anyone can explain why my answer (an odd one, indeed) is not the correct one, and why the correct one is correct?

Thank you very much.

BLD § 31 p. 15 Ex. II.1

Dear friends,
I don´t know English very well but I do think the key has some mistakes. I suggest this answer:

The sailor fights
The sailor is fighting
The sailor does fight
The sailors fight
The sailors arefighting
The sailors do fight

Best Regards

digitum minimum movere non potes

I have been trying to trace the origin of a short Latin quotation:

"Et digitum minimum movere non potes ut non mundum universum excites."

I stumbled across this on a Russian website (http://giscraft.ru/methods/method8.shtml). The authors of the site are convinved that the words are those of Pierre-Simon Laplace, a mathematician with strong deterministic beliefs who wrote during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (see ...

BLD §95 II Tranlation Q's

(Timicus lamentat) :(

§95 II.

"Alto muros, longa at dura bella, clara victorias quis non laudat?"

Isn't "victorias" the accusative plural of victories? So I translated this as "famous victories" rather than "famous battles" (claras pugnas).

(sigh) The previous set of excercises really threw me. I must have gone over §86 10 times without getting it right. I've had a lot of difficulty selecting the proper case ...
