Iliad 1:87

eu)xo/menoj Danaoi=si qeopropi/aj a)nafai/neij,
I learned that the participle can be translated as temporal, using when/while or after, depending on the tense in relation to the main verb.

If I do that in Iliad 1:87 I get something like; ...while praying you reveal oracles to the Greeks.
Two translations that I checked have it like; ...you pray while you reveal the oracles to the Greeks.
In this last case I would have expected the first ...

ou) in Iliad 1:86

Iliad 1:86- ou) ma\ ga\r )Apo/llwna dii/filon, w(|= te su/, Ka/lxan,

What does ou) mean in this sentence. It surely can't mean -not- or -no- can it?
Achilles' reply to Calchas would not be very heartening if it was; No, by Jove, I will not help you.

How do I understand this?

The media

I posted this on another forum: The Media thread at sc4ever.com
It's about the media and how/if it dictates our actions, or not.
Now this isn't really a textkit debate, but I'd like to hear your opinions, too (posted on this forum, but of course you can always reply to a thread on the other board).

Wm away for a week

Tomorrow I leave for darkest California, to that city known universally among my friends, regardless of sex or orientation, as Man Diego. There I will spend a week in the company of other Unix geeks and NT/Windows admins as we try to come up with ways to keep the intenet, or at least those portions for which we are responsible, working.

Spam is always an especial topic of discussion and venom at this annual conference, ...

Finally.. I found it!

After 2 1/2 years of searching, I'm a very persistent person, I'm now holding a 1913 copy of North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition - a classic! I ordered it from overseas and it arrived today after about 5 weeks of waiting.

I'm going to get this posted ASAP. Sorry, still looking for the key. The keys are almost impossible to find. Should anyone be near a good college library, and you're in the mood ...

Studying and Employment (from Violation of Human Rights)

It's quite easy in canada to go from working to learning and back again. A person can take part time or distance learning courses while they work, or they can quit work and get financing to go back to school. My mother went back to university after 25 years of being out, and because she was a single mom the government handed her all sorts of money that she didn't have to pay back... and ...

Latin : Latinity :: Greek : ?

This is making me crazy.

When you want to talk about the correct, classical quality of some random Latin text, you talk about the latinity. Then you can say things like "Cicero would never have used a subjunctive that way" and you go correct the phrasing.

I haven't been able to find an appropriate word for this in Greek which we can also use in English. My first guess was something like Helleneia, but that ...
