Crosby and Schaeffer Answer Key?

Postby Jefferson Cicero » Sun Aug 08, 2010 4:27 pm

Is there any such thing as an answer key for Crosby and Schaeffer's An Introduction to Greek, anywhere out there, online or off :?:
'Greek had to be simplified, and Latin had to be replaced with Italian, because we barbarians stole so many Greek and Latin words.'

I'm pretty certain that no answer key for C&S exists anywhere, in any form. It might be worth writing to the book's current publishers, Bolchazy & Carducci, to inquire further, however: http://www.bolchazy.com

There is a C&S Yahoo! Group whose coordinator has posted some answers (you'll need to join the group, of course, to see anything): http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Crosby/

Finally, I worked my way through the first 15 or so chapters 7 years ago and am giving it another go. I'd be happy to compare answers with you, if you like.

Hi Jefferson -- I found some resources after a Google search. Right now, however, I don't have privileges to post links in this forum so if you're inclined, please email me at gabbyhon {at} gmail.com

I'm also going through C&S on my own after a 7-year hiatus. I have previous answers up to Unit 15 that I'd be happy to type up for you, as well.

Thank you gabbyhon. I also have had a seven year hiatus from Crosby and Schaeffer. I intend to start back in two in three months when I finish refreshing my Latin.

I think Crosby and Schaeffer would be the perfect introductory Greek book for autodidacts who have had some Latin, if it had an answer key.

Also, thank you for offering to type up your answers, but I dont think there's any need for you to go to the trouble. From what I can tell, they intend to post answers in the Yahoo group.

I can really recommend the 'Yahoo' Crosby group. We're up to Chapter 24 now and still going strong. Excellent coordinator. Low attrition rate.

And our 'Answer Key' is growing naturally week by week.

At the very least, I recommend downloading the 'Unicorn' click-dictionary from this site:
http://www.quasillum.com/greek/greek-activities.php
It's a kind of Whitaker's Words for Greek - but even better in some respects. Absolutely invaluable tool.

Cheers,

Thank you, Interaxus. I'm joining the group. It's the perfect way to study Crosby & Schaeffer.

Actually, there was an original key (actually, Teacher's manual) to Crosby and Schaeffer. It can be downloaded from here:

http://cid-fee40656660aa288.skydrive.live.com/redir.aspx?resid=FEE40656660AA288!104
It does not include answers to the Greek-to-English exercises. But the rest is there.

Crosby and Schaeffer answer key

Postby rwhitnjapan » Tue Jul 12, 2011 4:21 pm

I took Greek back at UNC and kept all the correct answers in the book....somewhere. I can probably find the notebook that they are in. It was good to see that there is a site that gives the correct Greek translation for the English.
I also would like to join the yahoo group in going through this book and comparing answers, and ultimately creating an answer key for all. However, I will be starting from lesson 1 and I am sure if everyone else is pretty far along. Will there be a new class starting, and/or, can the people who have already gone all the way or part of the way through the book share their efforts? It would be appreciated.
