Question about Collations

Postby jaihare » Tue Mar 17, 2009 10:51 pm

In lesson 3 (§8), one of the assignments given is:

2) the declension of βουλή, καλὴ βουλή (659-662), and
write out the declension of κλαγγή and Χρύση.


As far as collation goes, would we just ignore this and expect that we would do this individually? I mean, it's not quite possible to collate entire noun declensions and verb conjugations, is it?

Or, could we ask that everyone post their answers into a thread here on the forum?

I haven't gotten any response to this question, but since I was sincere when asking (and it actually has relevance to the group), I'll rephrase in hope that someone will comment. :)

There are things that the book assigns that will be hard to post in a collation. While I can imagine typing up our poetry translations using the collation (and there are mark-ups specifically set for this in the collation code), I don't know what to do regarding assignments when we are told to write out paradigms for noun declensions or verbal conjugations. Should we start threads on here for this type of assignment? Also, what do we do to check the assignments when we label the syllables and feet of a poetic line? Is this all supposed to be done alone rather than as a group?

Thanks,
Jason

We have never bothered with the "write out declensions" assignments — only the exercise sentences (both G->E and E->G) and after lesson 13, the Iliad translations (which you should do in the order G->E, Iliad, E->G).
