Textkit Wish List

"It never hurts to ask" and "ask, and you shall receive" are two of my favorite sayings that are remarkably true.<br /><br />With this in mind, I'm asking for help in finding more of the harder to find grammars and readers. You should know that I don't have access to a college inter-library loan program, so it is very difficult to find quality books that are printed before 1923. Most I find through auctions and ...

As a rule the breathing mark on a diphthong is above the second vowel.<br />Why is it over the first when the word is a compound word starting with e)u/.<br />I see that eu itself is listed both ways - e)u/ - eu)=.
