contracted vs uncontracted

Hi to all!
I am wondering what the difference is between the contracted form and the uncontracted form of a verb is. For example, love:

φιλῶ (uncontracted = φιλέ-ω) ω like o in bone ἀγαπῶ (uncontracted = ἀγαπάω)
φιλεῖς (uncontracted =φιλέ-εις) ς like s in send ἀγαπᾷς (uncontracted = ἀγαπάεις)
φιλεῖ (uncontracted =φιλέ-ει) ει like ei in eight ἀγαπᾷ (uncontracted = ἀγαπάει)

Is the uncontracted part '-ω, -εις, ει' just the personal pronoun, equivalent to ...

I am still working on my annotated and tailored resource lists for both languages, but as you can imagine this is more than a little useful.

My Introduction

I found Textkit while searching for translations of M&L missing from the utoronto site. I taught elementary and intermediate Latin in a Catholic seminary for several years and then was away from it for some time. I now have the opportunity to study again, so am using M&L as a review. I hope to respond and contribute where I have knowledge and to learn from the observations of others. (Especially to confirm where I think ...

Greetings All
I just discovered this sight and hope to share ideas and inspiration with all. I have a BA and MA in the Classics, both from Florida State University. I have taught for 17 years.

Currently I teach High School Latin and am very excited to ...

introducing myself

Hello Textkit members,

I have been learning Greek since 2008. My basic text was the JACT "Reading Greek", and after a year's study with this I joined the Open University for the level 3 course, which was then available, using the same book. From late 2009 I have read variously bits of Homer, Plato, and most of an anthology also by JACT. At the moment, having discovered that my composition is so poor that it ...

Ben-Hur Translation Page 12: Father and Son

Thank you for your corrections!

Click for image of the page in English

All the pages translated so far

But Ben-Hur fails to see the approaching peril. Another galley bent on overtaking a pirate ship will not spare the lives of those struggling in the sea.

Benhur autem advenientem periculum non videt. Alia enim triremis, quæ festinat ad navim latronum comprehendendam, nitentibus in mari non parcet.

Ὁ δὲ Βενὼρ οὐκ ὁρᾷ τὸν ἐπιόντα κίνδυνον. Ἄλλη ...

introducing myself

I'm Gary. I studied Latin at school but sadly let it lapse, and although i've long regretted this i'd never quite got around to doing anything about it. I first began to look at Greek many years ago, but unfortunately the textbook i had back then was not very good and i became discouraged. Of late, however, my interest in sncient languages has been rekindled as an offshoot of other interests, and i've been ...

Intelligence²: Greece vs. Rome

Intelligence² organised a public debate on the topic Greece versus Rome, featuring the Right Honourable Boris Johnson and Professor Mary Beard as the proponents. Various aspects of the respective cultures are treated of. It continues a tradition which has been especially strong in the UK, I think, but is hardly unheard-of elsewhere, either. What are your impressions of the discussion and its arrangement?
