Please help

This sequence from Catullus 101 is giving me trouble :(<br />I think I have the gist of it, but the intertwining structures are rather confusing.<br /><br />Nunc tamen interea haec, prisco quae more parentum<br /> tradita sunt tristi munere ad inferias,<br />accipe fraterno multum manantia fletu,<br /> atque in perpetuum, frater, ave atque vale.<br /><br />I have no trouble with the last line, but even heavily annotated, ...

Enclitics and accent

As I know, when the postpositive conjunction "-que" is added, the accent is placed so, as if it were a single word. When the preceding syllable is long, there is no difficulty to place it: "senatus populu'sque romanus" and so on. But where must the accent be placed in such cases as "corpus animaque"? (It is nominative; so the "i" and last "a" both are short.) I’m not sure that "ani'maque" is correct.

Book recommendation please

Two books have been recommended and I would like your opinion on which one is the best.<br />1. Athenaze by Maurice Balme and Gilbert Lawall<br /> Reviews on this book vary from "the best" to " horrible" with nothing inbetween.<br />2. Beginning Greek By S.Paine. This book came highly recommended. What makes me hesitant (besides the price)is that this book prepares a person to read the Anabasis. I have nothing against that but some of ...

Pronounciation of "chi"

In JWW First Greek Book it says in 1., that c is pronounced like the "ch" in the German word "Buch". The German "ch" is pronounced very similarly to an "r". <br /><br />That does not really make sense to me, since I thought c was nearly pronounced like a "k". In addition, the German "ch" pronounciation for c sounds weird to me, since it sounds nearly like a r.<br /><br />I would greatly appreciate ...
