Excuse me for being slow; I am Canadian of Greek descent. It is easy enough posting a new topic, but how the heck do you post a reply to someone's query?

Thanks

Correction in Greek Grammar example

Sorry about that. I used the wrong example to ask my question about whether or not verbal forms like participles take a singular form when their subject ( i.e., referent) is neuter.

Example:ta\ te/kna e)po/menon h)\ ta\ te/kna e)po/mena;

Also, with participles is the accent persistent (like nouns) or is it recessive (like verbs).

Almost forgot. To represent the letter ksi and chi using spionic what symbols do I use? I noticed that the same ...

Greek Grammar

Greetings to all

Bare with me here. I know that a finite verb which has a plural neuter noun as its subject is singular. Does this apply only to finlite verbs or does it include verbal forms like participles as well?

Example: ta\ te/kna e)poreu/eto h)\ ta\ te/kna e)poreu/onto;

Hearing alot of good stuff about the Schaeffer & Crosby text. If anyone is using it would appreciate your thoughts on it.

Thanks

Paragraph 179, line 3

My translation reads:

and for the truth they were proceeding to the river?

How is this truth intended? Is it asking whether in all honesty they proceeded to the river or did they proceed to the river in order to find the truth?

Participles

Hi, my name is Peter. I am studying Attic Greek on my own. Everything was going great until I hit the participles. That is when you realise a textbook can only go so far -- especially one that doesn't come with an answer key!

I have a fairly good idea of what participles are and how they are used. However, I do have a problem when I encounter the participle wn ("being") in predicate position ...

On the Matrix (from 'Nonessence' @ The Academy)

Only the first part mind you... you don't need to see part 2 and 3 :wink: .

The pronunciation of omicron

Vox Graeca uses the german "Gott" for omicron and Received Pronunciation "saw" for omega. From my Harper's German-English dictionary, that implies that they only differed in quantity. But it explained that omicron isn’t pronounced as a close mid o like French beau. Yet then again, the chart clearly indicates a difference in quality in pronunciation with his use of two different characters to represent the pronunciation of omicron and omega. ...???

Sturtevant: “That o was ...
