New to the board

I am just starting to learn and there are many things that are new to me. I have had some learning from a freind and we used John Grescham Macheans(spelling?) Greek for new testament begginers. after that I had some help from one of the proffesors at PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) and we read half way through 'ATHENAZE I'. That was several years ago. and much of what I learned then has been forgotten.

So ...

clauses of comparison

hello chaps, i don't think i've done this lot very well. I've been on drugs (legal) over the weekend cos one of the glands under my ears has swollen hugely. I've got a big uneven face at the moment. I havent been able to concentrate much. Anyway, enough excuses:

1. Although the Gauls were exhausted, they fought until the chief was captured.
quamquam Galli confecti erant, tamen pugnaverunt donec principem captum est.

On which verb is this result clause contingent?

Ne`mo` fuit qvi` no`n intellegeret Canachi` signa rigidio`ra esse qvam vt imiterentvr ve`rita`tem.

Noone was, who did not perceive that Canachus' statues were too rigid to imitate true form.

I ask because, if 'vt imiterentur veritatem' is contigent upon esse and not intellegeret, the sentence is rendered 'nemo fvit qvi non intellegeret Canachi signa rigidiora esse qvam vt imitentvr veritatem'

Videor demonstrasse qvales essent di.

The indirect question, 'qvales essent di,' depends upon the ...

Stem? Base?

Section 462 of the appendix in D'ooge lists the Second Declension nouns
as "o-stems". The "stem" of dominus is listed as "domino", and the "base" as "domin".
I read in Henle's, and other grammars, that the "stem" is that part of the word which remains the same in spelling throughout the declension.
Henle (and others) lists the stem of dominus as "domin", not "domino".
DominUS, dominI, dominO, dominUM, dominO??? The "stem" is clearly changing here. ...

Imperatives: Aorist stem, -mi verbs

I have two questions about Greek Imperatives, either in general or as they concern New Testament Greek in particular.

1. Are all imperatives built off the aorist stem thereby considered aorist in tense? Or, can you build, for example, a present tense imperative off an aorist stem?

2. What are the rules for forming the different imperatives of -mi verbs? I can't seem to figure out any consistent rules. Is it best to just memorize ...

Introducing Quotations

I notice that sometimes when a quote is introduced, instead of just saying "Quote:", it will say "Somebodys-Name wrote:".

How do you do that?
