I've rekindled my passion to learn Ancient Greek. I am a Linguistics major and a polyglot, so I don't often have trouble deciphering what's what and why's why. Putting aside this "difficulty of learning a language," as well as cost for the most part (I've saved a bit for this purpose), what books would you guys recommend? I'd like to learn to write, too, so if there are any series that emphasize that, I would be very happy to hear about it!
Also, are there any specific recommendations on the books of this website? I have looked at a few but am still unsure of which to try.
A Brief Introduction to New Testament Greek, Samuel G. Green
A First Greek Course, Sir William Smith
A Short Syntax of New Testament Greek, H.P.V. Nunn
First Greek Book, John Williams White
First Greek Grammar Accidence, W. Gunion Rutherford
First Greek Grammar Syntax, W. Gunion Rutherford
Homeric Greek - A Book For Beginners, Clyde Pharr
Introduction to the Language and Verse of Homer, Thomas D. Seymour
NT Greek in a Nutshell, James Strong
I also own:
Oxford Grammar of Classical Greek, James Morwood. Seems more like a reference grammar than anything else.
An Introduction to Greek, Crosby and Schaeffer. Personally, this book seems unappealing because it does not really teach the alphabet, other than provide a list of them with the sounds all at once; and everything is IN Greek.
Thanks very much, I remember how helpful people were last time I came around the boards
Also, does anyone have a review of:
Learn Ancient Greek OR Learn Latin
