ἐπεὶ πρωία ἤν ἔβρεχε. ἔπειτα ὁ ἥλιος ἔλαμπε. ἐχθὲς ὁ δε τῆς θερμασίας ἄκρον ἦν εἴκοσι καὶ ἑπτὰ τήμερον μὲν ἑπτακαίδεκα. «μετάβολον έσται» εἰπὲ οἱ σοφοί.

τὴν μὲν οὖν γὴν θερμαίνων, πᾶσαν ἡμέραν ἔλαμπε ὁ ἥλιος. πολὺν δὲ χρόνον, τὴν βροχὴν οὐκ ἑωράκαμεν. καὶ τὴν θερμασίαν μισῶν, λυποῦμαι δή.

ἐπεὶ ἢν πρωία εβρεχε καὶ ἐπεὶ ἢν μεσημβρία ὁ ἥλιος ελαμπε. βέβρεκται ὥστε τὰ φυτὰ εισι ἄσμενα. ὁ ἥλιος λέλαμπε ὥστε ειμι ἄσμενος ἐγώ.

τήμερον τε ὁ ἥλιος ἔλαμπε καὶ ἔβρεχε ὥσπερ ἐχθὲς αλλὰ ψυχρότερον ἤν. τὰ φυτὰ χαίρει χωρὶς τῆς ἀμπελοῦ. ἡ ἄμπελος ἔχουσα βαθοῦς ῥίζας ζήτει τὸν ἥλιον ἀντί βροχῆς.

τήμερον ψυχρότερός ἐστιν ἢ ἐχθές. καὶ οἱ σοφοὶ λέγουσι ὅτι ταύτης τῆς ἑσπέρας ἡ βροχὴ ἐλεύσεται. πότερον δὲ σοφῶς ἢ οὐ λέγουσι, οὐκ οἶδα. σοφοὶ δὴ γάρ εἰσιν οὐκ οἱ δοκοῦντες εἶναι σοφοί, ἀλλ' οἱ ὄντες σοφοί. μόνος δὲ ὁ Θεός ἐν ἀληθείᾳ σοφός ἐστιν κατά με μὴ ὄντα σοφόν.

πρώτως ἔβρεχε. παύσαντος βρέχειν ἤλπιζον τὸν ἤλιον λάμπειν αλλὰ νεφέλαι ἐκάλυπτε τὸν ἤλιον. επειτα πάλιν ἔβρεχε. τέλος ἔλαμψε ὁ ἤλιος αλλὰ δύων μόνος ἀσθενῶς.

ἄρτι νῦν, ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ὥρᾳ, πολὺ ὕδωρ ἐκ οὺρανοῦ πίπτει. ὕει γὰρ ὁ Θεός. βρέχεται δὲ ἡ γῆ. οὐκ οὖν δύναμαι τὸν ἥλιον ὁρᾶν. καὶ ψυχρός ἐστιν ὁ ἀέρ. χρεῖαν οὖν τοῦ ἐμοῦ εὐρίπου οὐκ ἔχω. διὰ τοῦτο, χαίρω ἔγωγε.

τῆς πεμπτῆς ἡμέρας πολλάκις ἔρχομαι εις μέσον Λονδονου ὡς τήμερον. ειδον τους σοφοὺς λέγοντας ὁτι οὐ βρέξοι. επει ἐπανελθών, κατέβην εκ τῆς ἁμαξοστίας εβρεχε. μέντοι ἔδοξεν ἐμοὶ οὐ τρέχειν, τῆς βροχῆς οὐκ ἰσχυρῆς οὔσας. αλλὰ ἔπειτα τῆς βροχῆς γιγνομένης ἰσχυρῆς ἔδραμον οἴκαδε.

Δαυιδ, ἐχαρήν λίαν ὅτι συ εχρήσω τῷ λόγῳ “εἰ.”
εἰ ἐδεξάμην τήν βροχήν σου, ἐχάρην ἄν. ἀλλά οὐ ἐδεξάμην βροχήν σου. φευ!
(νύν δε συ βλέπεις ὅτι εγώ πειρώμαι χρήσασθαι τῷ λόγῷ τῷ “εἰ.”
αρτι χρήσωμαι πάλιν τῷ “εἰ.”)

σήμερον οὐ δύναμαι τὸ ὐμβρέλλα εὐρίσκειν. διὰ τοῦτο, ἐὰν βρέχῃ, δευθήσομαι ἐγώ.

I am writing in Ancient Greek not because I know Greek well, but because I hope that it will improve my fluency in reading. I got the idea for this from Adrianus over on the Latin forum here at Textkit.

ἀλεκτοροφωνίας οὔσας εἶδον τὴν σελήνην καὶ τὸν οὐρανὸν ἄνευ νεφελῶν. ἐνόμιζον ὅτι προέκειτο μοι εὐδία. μέντοι ἐπεὶ ἠγρόμην νεφέλαι ἐκάλυπτε τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ νῦν βρέχει.

Forgive the English but it is harder for me to talk about Greek rather than English.

What I intended was an unreal present conditional. The intended implication that on a different day such as today that was raining I might be able to give Saulos some of our rain was of course a joke.

Smyth, Greek Grammar, 2302-03 wrote:
In present and past unreal conditions the protasis implies that the supposition cannot or could not be realized because contrary to a known fact. The apodosis states what would be or would have been the result if the condition were or had been realized. The protasis has εἰ with the imperfect, aorist, or pluperfect indicative; the apodosis has ἄν with these past tenses.


Yes, you absolutely produced a correct "contrary-to-fact" conditional sentence. I was not correcting you, but rather I was adding my own conditional sentence, in this case a "future more vivid." I like Paul's idea about prompting each other to produce various grammatical constructions using vocabulary like "it is raining," that we have of necessity used over and over again on this thread. As he is wont to say, shield the vocab, but not the grammar.

εἰ βρέχοι, δεύοιμι ἄν.

Smyth, Greek Grammar 2329 wrote:
Less vivid future conditions (should . . . would conditions) have in the protasis εἰ with the optative, in the apodosis ἄν with the optative.
εἰ ταῦτα ποιοίης, καλῶς ἂν ποιοίης or εἰ ταῦτα ποιήσειας, καλῶς ἂν ποιήσειας if you should do this, you would do well.


Now I'll give you guys one:

τὸ "ὡς" σημαίνει πολλά. αἰτοῦμαι ὑμᾶς, παρακαλῶ, γράφε τι περὶ τῶν καιρῶν χρώμενος τῷ "ὡς."
