Greek characters on Android?

Is there a way to type in (polytonic) Greek in Android? I kind of doubt it but I'll probably be needing some help with Lysias I (when I get to it), which in the Loeb has a very non-literal translation, and I'm stuck on my phone. Otherwise I guess I'll have to use a transliteration with macrons and iota adscripts. Thanks!

"X lines to do" in old novels

In Victorian literature, you sometimes run across college students talking about the numbers of lines that they need to do/study. Here is an example from an Anthony Trollope short story:

"Frank," said the sister to her elder brother, knocking at his door when they had all gone up stairs, 'may I come in,--if you are not in bed?"

"In bed," said he, looking up with some little pride from his Greek book; "I've one hundred ...

Introduction

Hello I am retired and enjoying my retirement. So I want to get back to what I fell in love with in High School and that's Latin. I know that a lot of it I have forgotten, looking to download on here some beginning Latin material and going from there. Also, on the Greek side of things I am studing a Biblical Greek textbook. I have some college behind me. So I do have some ...

Pl. Ap. 18c3-8.

Can someone please help me understand the syntactic structure of the following passage (Pl. Ap. 18c3-8).

ἔπειτά εἰσιν οὗτοι οἱ κατήγοροι πολλοὶ καὶ πολὺν χρόνον ἤδη κατηγορηκότες, ἔτι δὲ καὶ ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ἡλικίᾳ λέγοντες πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν ᾗ ἂν μάλιστα ἐπιστεύσατε, παῖδες ὄντες ἔνιοι ὑμῶν καὶ μειράκια, ἀτεχνῶς ἐρήμην κατηγοροῦντες ἀπολογουμένου οὐδενός.


There are a few things I don't understand:

How are both participles related to the main verb (εἰσιν)?; are they nominal predicates ...

looking for interlinear of Caesar's Gallic War for Kindle

Hello everyone,
I am looking for Caesar's Gallic War, an interlinear version that would work well on a Kindle. I looked at archive.org and google books, but they don't seem to work well. I also went to Amazon and found two that would work: "Caesar: The Gallic War in Latin + English (SPQR)"; and "The Gallic War: Parallel English/Latin Version."

I am looking for something to read as opposed to study. I am using Inductive ...

Arnold's Greek course, Ollendorff, and Fraser's

I discovered Frädersdorff + Arnold + Browne's English-Greek Lexicon due to a recommendation of Blackie in the appendix to his Colloquial Greek course. Thomas Kerchever Arnold (not the great Thomas Arnold Tom Brown's School Days fame) also wrote a "Practical Introduction to Greek Prose Composition" following the Ollendorff method, as well as a "Practical Introduction to Greek Accidence." I know that some people have started threads looking for an Ollendorff method applied to Greek from ...

Pronouncing accented short vowels such as "i"?

Greetings all,

I am teaching myself Latin using Wheelock's Latin 7th Edition and supplementing with Ecclesiastical, Medieval, and Neo-Latin Sentences. I'm trying to understand the pronunciations of certain vowels. The books and sources I've seen primarily show similar long/short vowel pronunciations between Classical and Ecclesiastical Latin. However, I'm getting rather caught up in correctly pronouncing the short vowel "i".

Wheelock's discusses "i" vowel pronunciation as "ī as in machine: hīc, sīca" and "i as in ...

Greetings from an Ohio State grad!

Hello all,

I'm an Ohio State engineering graduate with a great interest in learning Ecclesiastical Latin. I'm using Wheelock's Latin and am supplementing my independent study with the book Ecclesiastical, Medieval, and Neo-Latin Sentences. I'm currently in Chapter 3 of WL, so I'm fairly new as I am just now learning 2nd declension nouns. I'm particularly interested in Ecclesiastical Latin so that I can enhance my religious life and studies with Latin Church documents and ...
