Is Anyone Else Studying Chase and Phillips?


I'm in the 14th chapter of Chase and Phillips' A New Introduction to Greek. If anyone else is studying Greek through this book, I'd be grateful to be a partner in learning with that person. Let me know!

iterative e)/ske in Iliad 3:180

dah\r au)=t' e)mo\j e)/ske kunw/pidoj, ei)/ pot' e)/hn ge.

I can't seem to translate the iterative e)/ske iteratively (is that a word?)

Isn't iterative characterized by repeated action?
I can understand 'he used to be' or 'he was' but not 'he was again and again.'
Is there another aspect indicated by an iterative ending?

Translation question

I have yet another translation question.

Vosne easdem litteras ad eum mittere cras audebitis? My attempt = Will you dare to send your same letter to him tomorrow? My question has to do with the Vosne. My translation doesn't quite read right to me.

Vos, easdem, and litteras are all accusative plural. Is the Vos just there for emphasis or am I missing something.

Thanks for your help,

Who Can Do This

For what values of x is the inequality true?

8|sin x - (x - 34pi)| < 0.8

And I so far have this

-0.1 - 34pi < sin x - x < 0.1 - 34pi

I figured someone might be bored enough to help.

Help! on new Greek texts discovered.

Hello friends,

I am a Spanish colleague, great lover of the classic languages. I am great enthusiastic of the Greek and Latin Paleography.

In recent date, we have discovered in a Archive of a particular collection manuscripts written in Greek, that apparently date from century X or XI AD.

Most of the text is a geographic description of the Mediterranean. The reading is very difficult by the so precarious and fragmented state of the codex, ...

Euripides, Xenophon, or something else?

Hey everyone! I would like to begin translating on my own through one of the Classical texts I own. Currently, I have a copy of Euripides Fables, Xenophon's Anabasis (books 1-4), the New Testament, as well as a copy of Harry Potter (in Greek). What would you guys recommend for someone with limited experience in Greek (limited being about studying independently for a year, going through one correspondence course), etc? Thanks for your help!!

Latin Beginner's Textbook???

Hey everyone, I have studied Classical Greek for about the last year or so, and am interested in picking up Latin at a slower pace, over the next year. I was wondering what you guys and gals might recommend as the best beginner's Latin Textbook? I have enjoyed the Athenaze textbook for Greek (if anyone is familiar with it), and am wondering if the Oxford Latin Course is a worthy investment? I have purchased prematurely ...

The thread dealing with the Basics of Biblical Greek study group was basically a poll to gauge interest.

Looking for TV film

A very long time ago (must be 20, 25 years ago) I saw a TV film about the murder of Julius Caesar. I have been trying to find it for some time, but I do not have enough details about title, actors etc to get anywhere.

I was wondering if any of you might remember it. The film was situated in modern times (the atmosphere of a 20th century South American dictatorship was created, there ...
