greek dialects

Hi again,

I've been searching the internet for more detailed linguistic informations

about the greek dialects ( phonology, syntax etc) but I can't find anything.

Do you know some site with such informations. I don't want to buy

Buck,'s book "Greek Dialects" but I want the information inside it.

Thanx,

Máximo

Pharr section 202 line 4

I am almost getting excited about translating a fairly long sentence without help, but...before my elation gets the better of me, I should have it checked first.

Greetings from a Beginner

Hello everyone.

I came across this site by luck whilst searching for online based latin teaching sites. I am quite impressed with this site, a fine selection of ebooks.
Anyway, I am totally new to Latin, I think I may have learned the odd word back when I did Classical Civilizations back in college, but I cannot remember a word.
I have downloaded all of the Latin Grammars, I shall look through 'Beginner's Latin Book' ...

reflexive partitive genitive; nostri or nostrum?

Part of ourselves. Pars nostri? ...or Pars nostrum?

If I were to use the first person plural reflexive in the partitive genitive sense would I use nostri or nostrum? I mean nostri is the reflexive form, but would one use the same form in the partive genitive case?

Cambridge Latin Project sucks.

http://www.cambridgescp.com

If they want people to learn latin, they should not charge insane amounts.
And why on earth would you need a teacher? And for Book I of that already stupid Cambridge latin course. I mean, for 300 pretty glossy pages they don't even mention the ablative!

Some organisation should give free, productive services if people are to learn latin. Yes I know that this is unreal, but what about all the money wasted on ...

How many ancients greek dialects there were?

I don't know if if I am just a sily beginner but my sometimes my greek

grammars ( I have 3 or 4 of them ) don't seem to match. For Instance, in

There are so manyquestions!

Can some help me? Please?

Does Latin lack in exactness?

After reading more and more Latin, it got me thinking as to the stengths and weaknesses of English compared to Latin. One of the ideas that struck me was the fact that a lot of the texts leave a lot of the passages up to individual interpretation as to exactly what the author was trying to say rather than being concrete about what one is trying to say.

Latin is certainly much more concise than ...

Great IDEA!

It just looked sad that no one posted to this one yet :( , so I decided to go ahead :D

I love this textbook. It works great along with the Green textbook available right here on Textkit. They follow a similar approach (nouns first, verbs later...). I'd reccomend using them together.

I've got tons of questions about ...
