Homeric conditional sentences

I wrote this up for the Pharr-a group. Some others might find it useful.

http://www.textkit.com/groups/pharr/conditions.pdf

The chart on the last page is probably the most useful part. I would like eventually to add more specifically Homeric examples, but not just now.

Feel free to suggest improvements.

could someone help me out with translating these phrases?

1. Came but for friendship, and took away love.

2. To love another person is to see the face of God.

3. Where there is love, there is life.

4. To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven.


Thanks.

Ch. 5 question

On #6 Practice and Review it brings a word that I can not find the meaning for; manebant. I looked in the dictionary and previous chapters but could not find this word. What page can I find its definition, or, do any of you know what it means. Couls it be a typo for monebant?

I guess I'll slink back to my chair, not read papers for a while and nurse my ego back to health... heck, even the senate Republican Majority grew bigger...

Perhaps in coming years things will change.. ...

About Voting

My friend had an interesting thought. He noticed that canidates target younger people to vote for them. This is becase they do not have experience living in the real world. Or maybe not enough. They wouldn't be wise enough. Come on. Would a kid in your AP chem class really no exactly who he wants for president? Not really. He hasn't even left the nest yet. People even in their 30s might not have enough ...

Continental vs. English Dipthongs for Greek

I want to take a poll of all Greek studiers (this will determine which is the best method of pronunciation for me to study), about whether or not you use the CONTINENTAL (which I have used so far) or the ENGLISH way of pronouncing the dipthongs in greek. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here are examples:

Continental
ai = "eye"
au = the "ow" in "now"
ei = the "ay" in "say" ...
