χθὲς νυκτός, εἶδον τοὺς ἀστέρας ἐν τῷ αἰθέρι. ἐμπρέπουσι οὗτοι καὶ ἄξιοι τοῦ βλέπειν! θαυμάζω δὲ τὴν τῶν ἀστέρων συλλογὴν, ὅταν τε φθίνωσιν, ὅταν τε ανατέλλωσι. φέρουσι γὰρ χεῖμα καὶ θέρος τοῖς ἀνθρώποις. τούτους δὲ τοὺς ἀστέρας κάτοιδα.

Aeschylus, Agamemnon 4-7: ἄστρων κάτοιδα νυκτέρων ὁμήγυριν,
καὶ τοὺς φέροντας χεῖμα καὶ θέρος βροτοῖς
λαμπροὺς δυνάστας, ἐμπρέποντας αἰθέρι
ἀστέρας, ὅταν φθίνωσιν, ἀντολάς τε τῶν.


ἄστρων κάτοιδα τὴν τῆς νυκτὸς συλλόγην, καὶ τοὺς ἐμπρέποντας αἰθέρι ἀστέρας, φέροντας χεῖμα καὶ θέρος τοῖς ἀνθρώποις, ὅταν μὲν φθίνωσιν, ὅταν δ' ανατέλλωσι.

ἐν ταύταις ταῖς ἡμέραις, ψυχρός ἐστιν πρωὶ μέν, μεσημβρίας δὲ θερμός. μόνον οὖν πρωὶ χρείαν ἔχω τοὺ θερμοφόρου. ἡ γὰρ ἥλιος θερμαίνει τὴν οἰκίαν καὶ τῆς νυκτός μένει θερμή.

Ἐν ταύταις ταῖς ἡμέραις οὔκ εἰμι ἐν τῇ Διδακουπόλει. Χθὲς μὲν γὰρ ἦν ἐν τῇ Μαρίας Γῇ , ἀπελθὼν δὲ σήμερόν εἰμι ἐν τῇ Οὐισκονσινίᾳ. Ὁ μὲν ἐνταῦθα οὐρανὸς ὑπὸ τῶν νεφέλων κέκρυτται, ὁ δὲ ἀὴρ ψυχρότερόν ἐστιν ἢ οἴκοι.

Ἐν τῇ Οὐισκονσινίᾳ ὤν, ἀκούω τὸν τοῦ ἀνέμου ψόφον. ὅς μὲν κινεῖ τοὺς τῶν δένδρων κλάδους, ἀναίρει δὲ τὰ φύλλα. Ψυχροῦ δὲ τοῦ ἀέρος ὄντος, ἐθέλω ὅμως βαδίζειν ἔσχατον. Ἐπαύριον φὰρ οἴκαδε πτήσομαι.

ψυχρὸς νῦν ἐστιν, ὡς μάλιστα! χθὲς δὲ νιφὰς ἔπεσε. λάμπει μὲν οὖν ὁ ἥλιος, δύναται τήκειν τὴν νιφάδα δ' οὔ. σήμερον οὖν βραδέως περιπατήσω ἵνα μὴ ὀλἰσθω.

Outside of ἐν τῇ εμῇ γῇ or ἐν μοῦ γῇ instead of ἐν εμῇ γῇ, I don't see any mistakes. Well done!

You should, though, add more connectives. This is much more of an art than a science. I don't have control of this yet. My use of connectives strikes me as not very artful,not quite right. But I do think the only way to get better at this is just to try out various styles and then take note of what you see in real Greek. I'll take a stab at adding connectives to your narrative.

Paul and Mark might well have written:
πάντες μὲν οὖν ἡμεῖς γογγύζομεν. ἅπαξ γὰρ μόνον ἔβρεξεν ενταῦθα! καὶ ὄντος θερμοῦ τοῦ ἀνέμου, ἡ βροχή οὐκ ἔρχεται. καίπερ δὲ μὴ ἐρχομένης τῆς βροχῆς ἐχθές ἤκουσα την βροντήν. καὶ ἀκούοντος μου τήν βροντήν οἱ μαθηταί μου εἶπον ὅτι αὕτη ἡ βροντή σημαίνει ἔρχεσθαι τὴν βροχήν ταχύ.

ἐν μὲν τῇ γῇ μου οὐδέποτε εἶδον κρυμόν ἤ νιφάδα ἐπι τοῦ ἐδάφους. ἐν δὲ τῴ Οὐισκονσινίᾳ αὐξάνων εἶδον δὴ τα αμφότερα.


If I took more time to rewrite what you wrote, I might well change the word order, precisely because for me the connectives one uses largely determines the word order, since certain sound combinations sound better than others. And the use of connectives are determined above all by a desire to avoid monotony. At least this is how is works for me. I THINK it worked the same for the Ancients, which is one reason why I am a Semantic minimalist. I could of course be wrong.

The word order that you use above does strike me as in the main euphonically sound.

Bedwere and Franmor, to name but two, are much better at this than I am. I wonder if in a sense good Ancient Greek prose writers are born, not made.

Genug! With the English enough already!

τρία ἐρωτήματα ἔχω...

ἄρα πόση νιφάδα ἔχεις; βραχεῖα ἤ μακρά ἡ ἐπὶ τοῦ ἐδάφους νιφάς;

ἄρα ἐσώσθη ἡ χεῖρ σου ἀπὸ τοῦ χείματος;


Σαῦλος wrote:ἐσώσθη

ἐν τῇ γλῶσσᾳ Chichewa, οὐκ ἔξεστιν λέγειν το παθητικόν ρῆμα χωρίς τοῦ λέγειν ὅς ἐποίησεν (ὡς "ὑπο αὐτοῦ)." ἄρα ἐρώτημα ἔχω. ορθῶς ἔγραψεν "εσώσθη" χωρίς "ὐπὸ τίνος"??

αἱ νεφέλαι κάλυπτε τον οὐρανὸν ἀλλὰ οὐ φέρει βροχήν. τὸ ἐν τῷ ἐμῷ κήπῳ δένδρον ἔτι ἔχει φύλλα ἀλλὰ πλεῖστα κεῖνται ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

ἐν ταύτῃ τῇ ὥρᾳ, ἀναβλέπων εἰς τοὺς οὐρανοὺς, ὁρῶ φωστῆρα μέγαν!

Gen 1:16: καὶ ἐποίησεν ὁ Θεὸς τοὺς δύο φωστῆρας τοὺς μεγάλους, τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν μέγαν εἰς ἀρχὰς τῆς ἡμέρας καὶ τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν ἐλάσσω εἰς ἀρχὰς τῆς νυκτός, καὶ τοὺς ἀστέρας.


νῦν μὲν οὖν μεσημβρία ἐστίν. βλέπω οὖν τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν μέγαν εἰς ἀρχὰς τῆς ἡμέρας. (λέγω δὴ τὸν ἥλιον.) τὴν δὲ σελήνην (τούτ' ἐστιν τὸν τὸν φωστῆρα τὸν ἐλάσσω) οὔ. οὐδὲ τοὺς ἀστέρας δύναμαι νῦν βλέπειν.

μόνη ὀλίγη νιφὰς ἔπεσε. νῦν δὲ τέτηκε.

καίπερ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ οὐκ ἄνευ νεφελῶν ὄντος ὁ ἥλιος πολλάκις ἔλαμπε. θερμασία οὐδέποτε ἤν μείζων ἢ ὀκτώ κατὰ τὴν τοῦ Τσελσιου κλίμακα.

ὁ μέγας φωστὴρ ὁ ποιηθεὶς ὑπὸ Θεοῦ εἰς ἀρχὰς τῆς ἡμέρας νῦν λάμπει. ὁ δἐ φωστὴρ οὗτος τὸν ἀέρα θερμαίνει. εὐχαριστῶ δὲ Θεῷ τῷ δίδοντι τὴν θερμασίαν τοῖς ἀνθρώποις. εὐδίαν γὰρ ἔχομεν.

νύκτωρ πρὶν ἤγειρον ἔβρεξε. μέντοι καίπερ νεφελων καλυπτόντων τὸν οὐρανὸν, οὐκ ἔβρεχε τήμερον.
