Genre of Luke and/or Acts

The Hermeneutics of Lucan Historiograph, By Roger Stronstad
http://enrichmentjournal.ag.org/top/Hol ... 200609.cfm

Luke 1:1 Ἐπειδήπερ πολλοὶ ἐπεχείρησαν ἀνατάξασθαι διήγησιν περὶ τῶν πεπληροφορημένων ἐν ἡμῖν πραγμάτων, 2 καθὼς παρέδοσαν ἡμῖν οἱ ἀπ᾿ ἀρχῆς αὐτόπται καὶ ὑπηρέται γενόμενοι τοῦ λόγου, 3 ἔδοξε κἀμοὶ παρηκολουθηκότι ἄνωθεν πᾶσιν ἀκριβῶς καθεξῆς σοι γράψαι, κράτιστε Θεόφιλε, 4 ἵνα ἐπιγνῷς περὶ ὧν κατηχήθης λόγων τὴν ἀσφάλειαν.

Lines 28-33

........ ὡς δὲ πέτρος ἢ θαλάσσιος
κλύδων ἀκούει νουθετουμένη φίλων,
ἢν μή ποτε στρέψασα πάλλευκον δέρην
αὐτὴ πρὸς αὑτὴν πατέρ' ἀποιμώξηι φίλον
καὶ γαῖαν οἴκους θ', οὓς προδοῦσ' ἀφίκετο
μετ' ἀνδρὸς ὅς σφε νῦν ἀτιμάσας ἔχει.

As a rock or sea-wave she hears her friends, being rebuked, unless sometimes having turned her all-white neck, she cries out to herself over her beloved father and land and home (pl. indicates rooms?), which she deserted ...

Codex Sinaiticus

During some reading about biblical textual traditions in Wikipedia, I came across an article on the Codex Sinaiticus with an image of part of Luke 11:2. I don't think I yet have rights to post a link or an image, but I will try to put the address below:

Thrilled at a chance to test my Greek on genuine unedited text, I went ahead and tried ...

How do I pronounce δυναμική (dynamics)

I am involved in aerodynamics. The above Greek (δυναμική) is the root of what in English we call dynamics. I believe that the word itself means motion or movement. How would I pronounce this phonetically?

Thank You

Nominative or genitive?

Would "the belly of the beast" be "de venter bestiae" or "de ventris bestiae"? I would think the nominative, but it's not a complete sentence, so it's hard to say. Google Translate (I know, I know) accepts both.

This is being used as a title for a project, not in the context of a long passage.

Beekes' Etymological Dictionary of Greek

Beekes is now out in paperback, and has been since 2016, actually, though I just found out. If the $575 hard back price tag scared you away before, the paperback is $120.

I can photograph some entries if anyone is interested. Looking over it so far, it seems to incorporate a lot of Frisk. My etymological knowledge is just about 0, however.

How to say..

Ok, I have seen that to go from the phrase, I came, I saw, I conquered, to WE came, We saw, We conquered, you would change it Veni, Vidi, Vici to Venimus, Vidimus, Vicious.... However, I work with a robotics team that is trying to say "We Came, We Saw, We Built" (as in, built robots etc). What would be the correct latin for the "We Built" part?

Cicero's Third Catilinarian

Is it my imagination, or is the Third Catilinarian a bit structurally less complex, less periodic, than other orations of Cicero? It is supposed to have been addressed to the people in general. Do we have an example here of how Cicero might have adjusted his normal speaking practices to suit a broader audience than usual (even taking into account that he certainly edited the speech for publication)?

Plato, Resp. 353 b8

Εἶεν, ἦν δ’ ἐγώ. οὐκοῦν καὶ ἀρετὴ δοκεῖ σοι εἶναι ἑκάστῳ ᾧπερ καὶ ἔργον τι προστέτακται; ἴωμεν δὲ ἐπὶ τὰ
αὐτὰ πάλιν· ὀφθαλμῶν, φαμέν, ἔστι τι ἔργον;
Ἔστιν. (5)
Ἆρ’ οὖν καὶ ἀρετὴ ὀφθαλμῶν ἔστιν;
Καὶ ἀρετή.
Τί δέ; ὤτων ἦν τι ἔργον;
Οὐκοῦν καὶ ἀρετή; (10)
Καὶ ἀρετή.
Why is ἦν (which I take to be imperfect of εἰμί) rather than ἔστιν there? Thanks in advance.
