Plutarch

So, I'm trying to translate this bit from Plutarch. The reference says "Plutarch, Dem. 7". But I can't figure out what work this is... I want to find an english translation so I can check my work. Perseus doesn't seem to have it. Does anyone know what this is and where I can find it?

:)

More Verse: Hipponactean Tetrameters

I motivated to play with a different metrical form last week. Technically, the verse is a trochaic tetrameter catalectic scazon. Isn't that a lovely name? Before I explain the meter, here are the symbols I'll use:

~ is a resolvable long (i.e., can be replaced by two short positions)
- is a long that must remain so
u is a short position
x is anceps, either long or short

The usual trochaic tetramenter catalectic is ...

easy traslation

Hi,

I started to learn Latin and trying to translate some easy passages. I want to ask an easy sentence to translate:
'Damocles, amicus Dionysii, divitias tyranni semper laudabat et dicebat Dionysium fortunae filium esse.'

I translated this sentence like that: Damocles, the friend of Dionysius, praised the riches of the tyrants and always said that the fortune of Dionysius is his son.

Is that correct? I believe it's not ... please help..

Which is the correct way to pronounce this?

I have seen GINOMAI pronounced with the ending AI sounding like a-hee. But then again I have seen it pronounced as AI just like the way it looks "ai" as in aisle. Are both pronounciations correct? Why would there be a difference between some grammars?

Online courses

I am new to this group, and I hope someone can assist me with my question. I would like to learn New Testament Greek, but I do not live in an area that offers these courses. I have been looking at a few colleges that offer Greek through distance education (e.g. Moody Bible Institute). I would like some opinions on whether or not a person can learn the language adequately without interaction with a professor. ...

What study techniques do you use?

I am thinking about changing the way I am studying and I was curious how other people study. I have not been using any sort of organized study plan. I was previously just doing the excercises in each chapter of Wheelock. I also have the Workbook (3rd edition) but was not using it yet.

I am considering the following method:
1. Read the chapter
2. Do all the excercises at the end of the chapter ...

a)/nqrwpoj o(, h( qeo/j o(, h(

In Rouse's "A First Greek Course"
a)/nqrwpoj is listed as a)/nqrwpoj o(, h( and qeo/j as qeo/j o(, h(
Have any of you seen these two words used in the feminine gender?
h( qeo/j in particular would surprise me considering that there is a feminine counterpart qea/

Representing Greek

Instead of this complecated system of representing Greek,
isn't better to have a tool for writing Greek letters or upload Greek fonts?
