I've been lurking here a little while, but this is the first time that I have ventured into the Homeric forum- had to register to thank you for that first link, especially. I've been studying Greek for a couple of months: I did an intensive six week summer course, and since Feb have been studying Plato in Greek II at uni. Homer was my motivation in learning Greek, but he is not taught here till Greek III. Until I read that article, it didn't even occur to me that I can always just start him on my own!
(This site is a godsend. I can't afford a dictionary, and it's a bugger spending all day in the library looking up words- when the sole large Greek dictionary isn't in use. Tonight I downloaded a Plato text here that actually had a dictionary appended to it! Glory be! I'll have much more time now to actually READ THE GREEK!!)
