Homeric Singing

Does anyone know any good internet sites which give audio recitations of the Iliad or Oddysey??

The following Ancient Greek music link is interesting:

www.oeaw.ac.at/kal/agm

It has the music for fragments of ancient greek songs and also a link to homeric singing.

ginomai, gegona, gegenomhn: overlapping forms?

Is ginomai a deponent verb?

In that case how can it have a form both for perfect active gegona
and a form for perfect passive/middle gegenhmai? Is not just one form enough? The same seems to happen with the aorist with egenomhn and egenhthen.

Could anyone translate these forms so that I can see the difference between them or provide meaningful examples?

Another question is: why do I encounter ginomai in Mounce and gignomai in ...


Netscape and SPIONIC

Hi All,

A simple question for any of you using a Mozilla browser to view textkit: do you see SPIONIC text as greek glyphs?

If so, would you be so kind as to post the requisite browser settings?

I cannot get NN 4.7 or 7.0 to behave. I have no difficulties with IE.

Thanks.

Cordially,

Paul

Exercise 111 Part II #1 and #7

I was wondering if someone could explain some grammer in these two sentences.

#1 - English: "The men of all Germany are preparing for war". My translation: Viri totus Germaniae bello parant. Is it correct to use bello here (dative singular since the men are preparing "for" war) or bellum (accusative singular), which is what is in the key? Why?

#7 - English: "Among the Romans (there) is no lack of grain". My translation: Apud ...

Participle help - again

Xai/rete, :)

I read somewhere that the key to learning Greek syntax, and therefore Greek, is a thorough understanding of the Participles. Truly, in my studies so far, that is indeed the case. Hardly a sentence goes by without a participle! I am not complaining. It is I suppose what gives Greek its esthetic beauty alongside its logical structure - no wonder the Romans learned Greek and ...
