How many ancients greek dialects there were?

Hi, Everybody,

I don't know if if I am just a sily beginner but my sometimes my greek

grammars ( I have 3 or 4 of them ) don't seem to match. For Instance, in

dual should I use tó and toîn with female nouns or tá and taîn?

Is there a order to learn greek?

What greek dialect we learn in a common grammar?

There are so manyquestions!

Can some help me? Please?

Does Latin lack in exactness?

Latin is certainly much more concise than ...

Great IDEA!

It just looked sad that no one posted to this one yet :( , so I decided to go ahead :D

I love this textbook. It works great along with the Green textbook available right here on Textkit. They follow a similar approach (nouns first, verbs later...). I'd reccomend using them together.

I've got tons of questions about ...

Thankyou for this forum!

Welcome to the D'Ooge forum every wise being who has chosen the best beginner's grammar going. Well deserved.

Thankyou textkit for this forum and the great book - I for one am actually learning Latin hence. Quite easily, may I add.

New Textbook Boards

We have added several new boards to encourage learners using specific textbooks to meet and help each other.

We're hoping the new boards will encourage more targeted discussions that are easier to find and follow and also to bring in new visitors who perhaps think that Textkit is a place for learning only through public domain grammars.

So if you're using any of these books, please begin posting in the respective boards.

thanks again!

Jeff

I just wanted to formally say hello to everyone and to say how glad that this place exists. I look forward to many a winter's night in front of my computer, slogging through my D'Ooge and discussing the finer points of grammar or literature with all of you. Why not some Claudian made available some day or Ammiannus Marcellinus?

talatta or talassa?

I was reading JWW's First Greek Book and I found a lot of words with a double "sigma" in my dictionary; qhile in that book they have a double "tau" instead
e.g.
tessara => tettara (four)
thalassa => talatta (sea)
et cetera
why that difference?
which is the correct form?
