:lol:

I am to begin the Ancient Greek episode in the near future; I want a good primer, admittedly as similar to that of D'Ooge as possible, without obviously the hic haec hoc. I want a harsh old book, but one with exercises and lively content rather than JWW.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/0715612581/qid%3D1081094080/sr%3D1-3/ref%3Dsr%5F1%5F2%5F3/026-5841586-0180401

Does any one know this book? If it is bad, do you have any recommendations?

Thank you, ...

Free PDFs

http://oll.libertyfund.org/

Go to the link that says "All Titles" at the bottom of the page. There are some works by Greek and Latin authors there, but I don't know if any are in the original language. I downloaded one dialogue of Plato, and it was not in the original. I haven't had time to download any more yet, with my slow dial-up line.

I did download Dante's Divine Comedy, ...

Textkit is still in my Favorites folder...

Hi, everyone!

I had a few minutes to myself, so I thought I'd stop in and see how you were doing, catch up on reading a few threads, and even post myself to let you know that yes, I still love Textkit, and yes, I will be back!

The nursery is thriving, which, of course, is good for business, but makes a great deal more work for us. In addition to that, my sister and ...

Actually, I've been hanging here for quite a while. Though I'm not a hard working autodidact, this place really teaches me a lot.

BLD: §82 II.2 Problem

Greetings!

Many thanks for the BLD answer key. I have been trying to catch up on the forum and am steadily working through the text. I hope that someone can help me over a little difficulty I'm having at the moment.

Here's my synopsis of the problem:

Introduction

Hello,

I would like to introduce myself to the Textkit community. I studied Ancient History a long time ago, and am now trying to get back into it.

Part of that is taking up Latin and Greek again. That will be a bit of a struggle, since I haven't done anything with it for, say, 10 years now.

I'm sure I will be back with questions!

Regards,
Adelheid

vowel quality

Hello! I'm new to this fabulous site and a relative beginner in the study of Ancient Greek. There is a matter for which I have yet to find a satisfactory answer. It may have already been addressed in these posts (though I haven't found it if it has). So, at the risk of being accused of beating an apsyxos hippos (if I could get the SPIonic font to kick in, I would), here is my ...
