An Introduction

Hello. I've been lurking in the shadows for the past month. I'm very interested in learning Attic Greek, and eventually the Homeric dialect.
I have been studying White's First Greek Book, and have finally decided to join the community!

Well, talk to you later. :)

Singular noun with plural pronoun

Hi all, this is from Matthew 1:21:
au)to/j ga\r sw=sei to\n lao\n au)tou~ a)po\ tw~n a(martiw~n au)tw~n
Well lao/n is singular but au)tw~n is plural. Why is that?

Test yourself

http://www.aqa.org.uk/

This site is the qualifications and assessment site for England and Wales. Select the qualification you are interested in and the subject. GCSE (!6+ exams) has a syllabus page for Latin and Classical Greek with useful vocab lists. AS and A2 (18+) also have syllabuses. Both areas also have sample exam papers and mark schemes. I have found them quite useful to gauge progress.

)Atrei/dh, nu=n a)/mme pa/lin plagxqe/ntaj o)i/w
a)\y a)ponosth/sein, ei)/ ken qa/nato/n ge fu/goimen,
I am having trouble translating these lines using the accusative of a)/mme I think the meaning is -" Son of Atreus, now, we have been beaten back again, I think we shall return home, if indeed we are to escape death".
Or maybe like this-" Son of Atreus, now, I think having been beaten back again we shall return home, if indeed ...

physically and mentaly abused, and opressed? (the list can go on)

i believe it is not ...

This French site has things some of us have long been looking for: a dictionary of synonyms (admittedly you have to know French to be able to understand it), easy readings (all in Latin so you don't really need to know French). Of course those who know French will get more out of it, but even if you don't you could still get something.
