Greek audio

Postby Σεβαστός » Sun Apr 28, 2013 9:07 pm

I noticed someone had posted about Latin podcasts in the Latin forum. I just wondered whether anyone had any experience with Greek ones (or indeed any Greek audio material), and if so, what pronunciation they used?

This still-in-progress audio of the Greek Ollendorff is arguably the best available at any price (and it's free.)

I'd call it a cross between Erasmian and the so-called Restored Attic. It's sort of tonal and he does pronounce the iota subscript.

Thanks for this, Marcos. I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Ollendorff - how does it work (in a nutshell) and how are the podcasts related?

Thank you, Markos! :D

This is what I wrote in the blurb for my edition of the Greek Ollendorff:

This book approaches ancient Greek through the verbal repetition of a progressively or perpetually growing repertoire of phrases and idioms, which is Henri Ollendorff's methodology, a nineteenth-century German grammarian.


Markos asked me to make recordings of the exercises because he thinks (and I agree) that they may help people speak the language. As I wrote, they contain a lot of repetitions of basic vocabulary.

Oh so you recorded these? Good on you! Is there a link to a copy of this online, because the one I found on archive.org seems to be quite different?

Sure! The link is in Markos's (ah, the possessive case warms my heart! :D ) post above.

Sorry, I meant the book so I could take a look!

Sorry, I misunderstood. I used the copy from archive.org . There is a missing page, which I took from the copy on Google books, but all the rest is there.

Check my post with the solutions of the exercises:

Key to Greek Ollendorff. Please help!

I put a link to each page.

Do the book and the recordings teach Attic Greek or other variants?

Attic, more or less.
