Perhaps I'm using the wrong board to ask questions about Greek words. Which forum would one use as a beginner?
Notice the tag for "quote." You'll want to keep your
words separate from those of others. Try to indicate when you're speaking and when you're posting the words of another forum user.
This is, of course, the right forum for asking questions and for getting started with Greek.
The question is, though, what you mean by "beginner". If you're starting to study Greek, then you're a beginner. If you're not intending to study Greek but just want to ask questions about individual words and never begin to understand anything about the structure and feel of the language, then you're not a beginner. You might be a dabbler or simply curious, but you're not a beginner.
So, with that in mind, I'd challenge you to BEGIN with Greek! Don't just call yourself
a beginner, but actually become
one! If you don't want to invest in a Greek textbook at this point, then I suggest that you start with something like First Greek Book
by John W. White. It's freely available from this very website for download. If you open that up, begin to learn the Greek alphabet, start to look at Greek as a language and have any questions or difficulties with it, then we (the lovely users of the Textkit forums) will support you, cheer you on, help you through difficulties, advise you on the direction of your study, and maybe even pick up the exercises and study along with you!
Pick up a Greek textbook and start studying. That's the only way to get to the type of knowledge that you have expressed curiosity about.
