Does any one have a link, or a list of what the names of the consonants are?

Long Vowels vs. Short Vowels

Ok....I've read the first chapter in D'Ooge, and I have a question about the vowel O and U in both long and short varieties.

When you pronounce these long and short is there a noticable difference?

Thanks ...

Critical Apparatus

Would anyone be so kind as to briefly explain how an <i>apparatus criticus</i> works? I understand the basic principle that alternative readings are recorded at the bottom of the page, but I am at a loss as to what '' signify, let alone abbreviations like 'ath.'.

New Greek student finding trouble....

Hello, everyone. I just joined this wonderful community today, and I've been taking advantage of the incredible useful resources posted on the site. Kudos for this; it's exactly what I've been looking for. Anyway, I consider myself a student of language, but other than a terrible first-year Latin class, a year of French and two years of Spanish, I don't have much formal training. So I find myself needing clarification on some of the stuff ...
