H&Q Unit 1

Postby bingley » Thu Sep 11, 2003 8:58 am

Could someone check my answers to this English to Greek translation exercise, please. I'm using the book as a revision text. We didn't really cover accents at school, so if you could particularly check for them I'd be very grateful.<br /><br />The themes for the unit are:<br /><br />First and Second Declension Nouns<br />The Article<br />Word Order<br /><br />1. The god educates the men.<br />2. the man sends Homer’s brother to the marketplace.<br />3. Man, Homer’s brother sends to the gods a gift from the island.<br />4. With his stories Homer educates his brothers on the islands.<br /><br />[face=SPIonic]o( qeo\j tou\j a)nqrw/pouj paideu/ei.<br /><br />o( a)/nqrwpoj ei)j th\n a)gora\n to\n O(mh/rou a)delfo\n pe/mpei.<br /><br />w)= a)/nqrwpe o( O(mh/rou a)delfo\j to\ e)k th\j nh/sou dw=ron ei)j tou\j qeou\j pe/mpei.<br /><br />o( O(/mhroj tou\j a)delfou\j e)n toi\j nh/soij paideu/ei toi\j lo/goij. <br />[/face]

Thank you Skylax. <br /><br />I did have [face=SPIonic]toi=j[/face] on my handwritten answer sheet. It's taking me a while to get used to typing in Greek. You'd be surprised how many pi's started life as mu's.
