Tribute to Glenn Hoddle!

I don't know it in latin (probably Quam homo or hominem or something - someone!) so I'll just say it in french:<br /><br />Quel homme!<br /><br /><br />Glenn Hoddle is the former manager of the England football team. He was sacked thence for his comment regarding disabled people: "You and I have arms and legs and half decent brains; because of bad karma working from another life". Debateable indeed!<br /><br /><br ...

Introduction of myself, Nancy,studying whites First Greek B

Hi, I just began using this system and I am quite new to chat rooms. I have been reading your messages and find them very helpful. I am from Toronto Canada, in my early 60's and I was first introduced to First Greek Book by White by my highschool teacher Mr.Lorne Smith. Over the years I have tried to study and often very frustrated by not remembering everything. One thing I have learned and that ...

Aoidoi: Simonides' "Danae's Lament" commented

I just finished adding vocabulary and grammar notes to Simonides 543. It is a very charming poem, and I think anyone who has mastered the fundamentals of Greek should be able to read the poem with the help of the notes.<br /><br />http://www.aoidoi.org/texts/simonides/543.php<br /><br />There's even one athematic second aorist imperative! :) <br />

eyenonto

In the vocabulary section of Pharr it says that e)ge/nonto is 2ndaorist of gi/gnomai.<br />With e)geno/mhn listed as the 3rd principal part I would have expected e)ge/neto.<br />Is the one a regular form and the other a variant?<br />Thank you.<br />Bert.

Iliad:54

th|= deka/th| d' a)gorh/nde kale/ssato lao\n )Axilleu/j<br />In the footnotes it says that kale/ssato is causative.<br />In section 1069 of Pharr it says concerning verbs with a causative sense;... the subject causes something to be done by another.<br />I don't see how the verb in question fits this description.<br />Achilles is doing the summoning. (Unless he is a commander and has someone doing the calling for him, but that can't be deduced from the context ...
