Differentiating male and female Dat. and Abl

Learning Latin



Differentiating male and female Dat. and Abl

Homeric Hymn X (to Aphrodite), meter

Homeric Greek and Early Greek Poetry



Homeric Hymn X (to Aphrodite), meter

After working on it for months, I think I figured out the meter to the tenth Homeric hymn, dedicated to Aphrodite. Ultimately I want to craft a workable melody so that I can sing the song myself, so this is the first step. I’d ...

Sexual Desire: πυροῦσθαι (burned) and ἐξεκαύθησαν (inflamed)

Koine and Biblical Greek



Sexual Desire: πυροῦσθαι (burned) and ἐξεκαύθησαν (inflamed)
