I have a very basic question. I am working on the practice sentences in Lesson XI of Pharr and I can't understand some of the forms given.
[sorry I'm missing the diacritics]
6. Î¿Ï„Îµ ÎºÎ±ÎºÏ‰Ïƒ Ï€ÏÎ¿ÏƒÎµÎµÎ¹Ï€ÎµÎ½ Î‘Ï„ÏÎµÎ¹Î´Î·Ïƒ Î§ÏÏ…ÏƒÎ·Î½, Ï„Î¿Ï„Îµ ÎµÏ‡Î¿Î»Ï‰ÏƒÎµÎ½ ÎµÎºÎ·Î²Î¿Î»Î¿Î½.
I'm reading it with the aorist, as "When the son of Atreus spoke wickedly to Chryses, he then angered the free-shooter." But what is going on with "Ï€ÏÎ¿ÏƒÎµÎµÎ¹Ï€ÎµÎ½" and "ÎµÏ‡Î¿Î»Ï‰ÏƒÎµÎ½"?
If the verb is third person aorist singular active, shouldn't it be "Ï€ÏÎ¿ÏƒÎµÎµÎ¹Ï€Îµ" and "ÎµÏ‡Î¿Î»Ï‰ÏƒÎµ" without the "v"? Is it because the next word starts with a vowel?
Thanks for any help! I just bought myself Pharr for my debut in Greek and so far things are slow but very interesting.
