Italian Grammar For The Beginner

I intend to learn Greek (JWW) within the next couple of years at least up to intermediate level; however I think myself presently to be incapable of doing thus. For, accompanied by Latin, it would be too intense.<br />I want to learn Italian this year also. Knows anyone, of a beginners Italian Grammar (accompanied by exercises and vocabulary). <br />I find Dr. Benjamin L. D'Ooge's grammar so simple, so compact with its welcome want of ...

Hi there

Bon soir.<br /><br />I, Ansgar, am neophytically joining this forum today with great expecations. I hit on this source while searching for some web sites on "classical" Greek, which I have set my mind to re-learn after a break of, I believe, 21 years ("ante Keesa nata," I am afraid) and only two years of high school exposure.<br /><br />I found browsing the forum encouraging in a hard-to-determine manner; it must have been the exuberance ...

Pardon my senility!

I blame it for why I have not been introduced.<br /><br />Greek I am learning to decipher that famous passage of Homer concerning names of places and how many men and ships they had and too many names of generals to remember afterwards. A passage so tedious and yet a part of our great literature surely must hold some secret!<br /><br />You who know me from the Academy, you also know of my relationship with ...

Delphoi

Hello everyone,<br /><br />I'm German so please be patient with my English. I'd like to ask your advice: I'm trying to find out the right Ancient Greek spelling of the famous Delphic inscription "Know Thyself".

I've come across a different version where the last word is written with an "epsilon" behind the "sigma". <br />I'm also trying to figure ...
