Below are my attempts to the English to Greek exercises out of JJW - they may be of use to other starters like me. All corrections welcome of course? once the errors have been ironed out, we could perhaps put together a collective Key to the volume, such has been already started for the Greek to English sections.<br /><br />Paragraph 42<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />makra\j h(me/raj.<br />mikrai~j stratiai~j.<br />e)n th|~ a)gora|~.<br />h( xw/ra mikra\ h]n.<br />mikra\n oi0ki/an e/)xei.<br />[/face]<br /><br />Paragraph 47<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />e)n tai~j kwmai~j h]san skhnai/.<br />e)n tai~j skhnai~j sfendo/naj e/)xousin.<br />ai( ma/xai foberai\ h]san.<br />oi)ki/a mikra\ h]n e)n th~| kw/mh|<br />skhna\j kai\ sfendo/naj e/)xousin.<br />[/face]<br /><br />Paragraph 58<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />a(rpa/zei.<br />a/)gomen.<br />bouleu/ousin.<br />pe/mpeij, pe/mpete.<br />lu/w.<br />[/face]<br /><br />Paragraph 60<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />fulakh\n (Ellhnikh\n e/)xei;<br />ou) lu/omen ta\j pu/laj.<br />fulakh\n pe/mpw.<br />kalh\n oi)ki/an e//)xeij.<br />ou) lu/ei ta\j oi)ki/aj e)n th~| kw/mh|.<br />[/face]<br /><br />Paragraph 65<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />ta\j trape/zaj lu/omen.<br />ou)x a9rpa/zousi ta\j a(ma/caj.<br />ai( ge/furai makrai\ kai\ stenai\ h]san.<br />ta\j maxai/raj e)pi\ th~j a(ma/chj a1gei;<br />e)k tw~n kwmw~n ei)j th\n qa/lattan ou)k a1gei th\n fulakh/n. <br />[/face]<br /><br />Paragraph 72<br />[face=SPIonic] <br />e1luon.<br />ei/)xomen.<br />e)/pempej e)pe/mpete<br />e)bou/leue.<br />h/(rpazon.<br />[/face]<br /><br />

Thanks for the post Koala and the confirmation Skylax.

A question. For §60, #5 the English text is:
He is not plundering the houses in the village

Would this be a valid translation?

[face=SPIonic]ou)x a(rpa&zei ta&j oi0ki/aj e0n th~| kw&me|[/face]

Thanks. -TJ

Don't forget your final sigma ([face=SPIonic]j[/face]) differs from internal sigma ([face=SPIonic]s[/face]).
