Let's draw something


Tell me what I should create or draw. In Greek. I will ask you questions if I don't understand you. In Greek.

Difficulty: I can't draw!

Why am I doing this? I have this crazy theory that communicating in order do or create something is a great language learning activity.

A syntactic skeleton from Herodotos

This is about Alyattes the Lydian King who made a large dedication to Delphi. I've made use of the first half but not the second half.
Hdt. 1.25.2 ἀνέθηκε δὲ ἐκφυγὼν τὴν νοῦσον δεύτερος οὗτος τῆς οἰκίης ταύτης ἐς Δελφοὺς κρητῆρά τε ἀργύρεον μέγαν καὶ ὑποκρητηρίδιον σιδήρεον κολλητόν, θέης ἄξιον διὰ πάντων τῶν ἐν Δελφοῖσι ἀναθημάτων, Γλαύκου τοῦ Χίου ποίημα, ὃς μοῦνος δὴ πάντων ἀνθρώπων σιδήρου κόλλησιν ἐξεῦρε.

This is about Henrique of Malacca who ...

ἤ in 1Corinthians 14:36

Hello everyone!

I am 27, German and currently studying theology and working as a bible teacher. I was wondering whether you could help me with a translation. The question is: How would you translate the ἤ in verse 36?

34 αἱ γυναῖκες ἐν ταῖς ἐκκλησίαις σιγάτωσαν, οὐ γὰρ ἐπιτρέπεται αὐταῖς λαλεῖν· ἀλλὰ ὑποτασσέσθωσαν, καθὼς καὶ ὁ νόμος λέγει.
35 εἰ δέ τι μαθεῖν θέλουσιν, ἐν οἴκῳ τοὺς ἰδίους ἄνδρας ἐπερωτάτωσαν, αἰσχρὸν γάρ ἐστιν γυναικὶ λαλεῖν ...

Odd adjective noun agreement

Hey guys, it's winter break for me right now, and I'm doing some Latin translations to sharpen my skills for the upcoming semester. Usually Wheelock's answers all my questions for me, but not this time.

In the sentence: Sumus sapientores illis, quod nos naturam esse optimam ducem scimus.

(Working translation: we are wiser than them, because we know nature is the best leader)

Can the ablative be used sans prepositions to work as a comparison? ...

Translations (Please correct!)

I would like to do some translation to give the chance for others to correct me where I misunderstand anything. Here is Ο ΜΩΡΟΣ.

ἴσθι σοφὸν δὴ ὄντα τὸν μῶρον τὸν παρ’ ἡμῖν· ἄκουε γάρ. ἐπύρεττε μὲν ὁ μῶρος· καὶ κατακλιθεὶς ἐπὶ κλίνης μεγάλῃ τῇ φωνῇ ἐβόα. μετεπέμψατο δ’ ἰατρόν, ἵνα σωθείη· ὁ δ’ ἰατρὸς ἐλθών, καὶ ψαυσάμενος αὐτοῦ, "οἴμοι, ἔφη, κακῶς πυρέττεις." ὁ δὲ μῶρος τοῦτ’ ἀκούσας ὠργίσθη, καὶ εἶπεν· "εὐφήμει, ὦ ἄνθρωπε· οὐ ...

quaeque, quoque, in a hard sentence

Boethius, Consolation, Book 2, Prosa 6

Context: in the body, considered by itself, the human is weak.

Quid vero, si corpus spectes, inbecillius homine reperire queas quos saepe muscularum quoque vel morsus vel in secreta quaeque reptantium necat introitus?

Now here is a truth: if you would examine the body, you would find humans very weak. Why, the bite of little flies often kills men, as can an invasion of them, crawling into ...

Declension of Ἐΰς

I'm starting my Homer courses soon, but I was slightly fazed by the adjective ἐΰς. The entries for this word in the various dictionaries seem quite scant, so I'm unable to acquire a good understanding of how this word is to be declined. Formally it seems similar to third declension -ύς, -εῖα, -ύ, but something doesn't fit.

Wikipedia suggests that this word comes from I.E. *῾συ-, which in strong cases should lead me to expect ...

Hello from Arkansas

Hello, my name's Alexander and I'm from rural Arkansas. I found this site while searching for Latin and Greek language learning textbooks online. Some friends and I have decided to start a group for men, young men in our generation specifically, but open to men of all ages, and one of the things we want to do in this group is study the writings of the Greek and Roman philosophers. We also have an interest ...

Key to Sidgwick and Morice's Greek Verse Composition

Dear textkiters,

Does anyone know where I can get a copy (or PDF) of this? It has been recently reprinted (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Greek-Verse-Com ... gy_b_img_y), but I see that in other of the Greek works reprinted by this publisher, the Greek has been completely mangled, making them useless! Any help gratefully received.
