On another thread (http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic.php?t=217), Koala, has
begun to put up answers for discussion. This is really helpful for a beginner like me. However, I have one or two questions..
For In the village were tents
Comparing one of Koala's answers:
Koala wrote:Paragraph 47<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />e)n tai~j kwmai~j h]san skhnai/.<br />[/face]
[face=SPIonic]e)n tai=j kw/maij skhnai/ h]san[/face]
Apart from my, probably, dodgy accents (they're causing me some problems..) is there a concensus (for a beginner) on word order. I guess, a bit like may occur in German, I put the verb at the end...
They have tents and slings
I put: [face=SPIonic]skhna8j kai sfengo/va/j e)/xousi[/face]
[face=SPIonic]skhna\j kai\ sfendo/naj e/)xousin.[/face]
The final [face=SPIonic]n[/face] being because it ends the sentence? Is that right?
Finally, why does Koala have [face=SPIonic]kai\[/face] and I only have [face=SPIonic]kai[/face]? Why the different [face=SPIonic]i\[/face]?
Many thanks for any help.
