Question regarding accent marks.

What do the accute and grave acent marks indicate? I do not refer to those that govern breathing sounds (i.e., smooth-breathing and rough breathing). Also, what do the circumflex and the wierd half-circle thing indicate?

Hi, all!

Hi!<br /><br />I'm Myungsunn, from Korea. Recently joined the forum. I'm self-tutoring greek in a really slow progress. From time to time when I get leisure and when I feel like. I'm also interested in other old languages that will lead me to the ancient cultures, when people began to create from nothing. But I'm no dedicated student of humanties. It's like my hobby to learn the old tongues.<br /><br />----<br /><br />I'm currently editing ...

My own principle (not based on Freuds)

(I had thought of this before I heard of Sigmund Freud's law.)<br /><br />Some time ago, while sitting pondering, I had a thought: The single, most fundamental rule, upon which every other rule of human behaviour is predicated, is my rule, with the apt appellation, "The Law of Dividends". <br />This law states that nothing CAN be done that isn't within certain parameters of return for oneself. To attempt to violate the law is to ...

Word of the day Week of 8/18

Just a fun word:<br /><br />Persalutare: to salute one after another<br /><br />I came across this word in my Latin-Dutch dictionary, and I had this vision of a birthday party, everbody sitting everywhere, and each time someone new comes in they all have to stand up of for shaking hands and kisses. People, I'll skip the persalutatio today :).<br /><br />Ingrid

product wishlist

The question in the latin forum about calendars brought back an old idea for me... wouldn't it be great if someone were to start making latin products such as calendars, greeting cards, etc in latin and greek? <br /><br />or even if someone were to pull together what is there into one site... and redistribute... hm, maybe *I* should do that. <br /><br />i think there are latin fridge poetry magnets...<br /><br />if *someone* were ...

Word-a-Day Latin Calendars

Do any of you have one of these calendars just for fun? I'm talking about those desk calendars with the pages you have to tear off each day; and on each page they give you a Latin word or phrase.<br /><br />I'm just curious. It's almost 2004! They have these calendars for all sorts of things. I even saw one which gives you origami folding instructions for something different each day. I've never kept one ...

Embarrassing...

1. Num fugam temptaverunt? <br /><br />2. (Qui viri castra ponunt?) - Ii sunt viri quorum armis Germani victi sunt.<br /><br />I think I have some kind of block...nervousness before 3rd declension or something?<br /><br />And can interrogative pronouns be used in the plural to imply that the asker knows there to be more than one person doing whatever he asks about?<br /><br />Thanks.

Pharr section 31 line 1

I am reviewing what I have learned so far and I got stuck at section 31 line 1 of Homeric Greek by Pharr.<br />a)ei/domen qea\n qala/sshj deinh=j klaggh=| pollh=| I am not sure about the correct translation of the dative of the last two words. Is it instrumental, as in - we sing with a great roar-? A roar does not seem a good discription for singing a song or chanting a chant. Is this ...


Trouble with pronouns

Hi everyone. I'm new to Greek and have been trying to work through White's First Greek Book. I'm having a little trouble with Lesson XVII, specifically Paragraph 162, question 10 where it says "oi( te au)tou= e)kei/nou" I assume it is refering back to "the soldiers" but I was wondering why it was in the genitive singular. Does it mean "of that same"? I'm probably just overlooking some obvious answer but it's been driving me ...
