Pharr: Lesson 15, trans. (G-E), #3


It appears that the Homeric board has been a tad quiet of late. Time to rouse it up!

In Lesson 15, trans. (G-E), #3, we have the following clause:

to\n ga\r basileu\j )Atrei/dhj e)xo/lwsen (for the king, son of Atreus, enraged him)

Does not the verb in the clause take a dative object? If so, should it not be tw|= instead of to/n?

Thank you,


P.S. How is the diaeresis represented in SPIonic?

SEE NOW http://phileleutherus.fortunecity.co.uk/Booklist1.html

Over the last few months I have, as is my wont, being buying more classics books. Since I posted the last list I have had some interesting comments on some of the items therein (albeit primarily by the list's being picked up on google), and I thought the much updated version of the collection might be of interest to some, however few. Cheers.

Balloon Club Motto

I would like to create a motto for our Hot Air Ballooning club. Stealing from Descartes, I would like to say: "I am safe; therefore, I am".

My assumption is that the word Incolumis is closer than Salus regarding the meaning I would like to convey. Would "Incolumis Ego Sum" be correct?

Any help would be appreciated.

modern Greek?

I have been studying koine Greek for awhile. I have recently purchased a couple of modern Greek books, one is "Travel Talk" and another is "Conversational Greek." I have noticed some differences in sounds of letters and differences in some vocabulary words. But I figured right now would be a good time to learn some modern Greek just incase I eventually would like to speak Greek. I figured learning to speak it would be helpful ...

I have two questions on Latin pronunciation:

I. Does Latin use the trilled R in every Latin word with R in it or just in the alphabet?

II. Does the short o sound like the o in pot or the o in pole?

Amor vincit omnia...

I'm currently reading the Canterbury Tales, and in the prologue this Latin phrase is mentioned, "Amor vincit omnia". With my rudimentary Latin skills I translated this "Love ___ all," and inferred "Love conquers all." I'm just wondering if I am right. :)
