Re: Word for a crab's or scorpion's pincers?

Thanks! I had a feeling it would be astronomy/astrology-related. :)

Word for a crab's or scorpion's pincers?

Perseus has σκενδύλη, which seems to be very rare, for "pincers" and λαβιδόω for "seize with pincers". Does anyone know of examples from literature of people talking about crustacean or scorpion pincers?

Re: The section on stress in Vox Graeca

There's a chapter about it in the last edition of Vox Graeca, although some printing errors on the formulas make it hard to parse. Accent and Rhythm has a longer discussion. Martin L. West has a critique of the theory it in his review, which can be found on JSTOR. Here's the quote I'm referring to....

The section on stress in Vox Graeca

Can anyone give a better explanation of the rules of the hypothetical stress accent described in the last section of the last chapter of Vox Graeca, or give some examples? I find it rather difficult to follow. I think jeidsath also mentioned that there are typos in this section. Is that right?

Error in (Italian) Athenaze? ἐνοπλίος vs ἐνόπλος

Is this an error in the Italian Athenaze? This sentence is in the margin on pg. 208: Ὁρῶσι τὴν εἰκόνα τῆς Ἀθηνᾶς, ἐνοπλίου οὔσης καὶ Νίκην τῇ δεξιᾷ φερούσης. And this fragment occurs in the main text on 209: ...καὶ τὴν τῆς Ἀθηνᾶς εἰκόνα, μεγίστην οὖσαν, ἐνοπλίον καὶ δόρυ δεξιᾷ φέρουσαν. ἐνοπλίος mea...

Is this somewhere in Vox Graeca, or somewhere else?

Remnants of locative case in Greek

So, I know οἴκοι and ἐκεῖ are relicts of a locative case that existed at some point, but I haven't found a source that comes right out and says χαμαί is. Is it, and if so, what was the noun it was the locative of?

Are there any other examples of such relicts?

Re: The final word on Greek pronunciation

Perhaps this is a good opportunity to ask people around here. What do you think about Stephen Daitz's pronunciation of Ancient Greek? Has anyone listened to his recordings? I have listened to his The Pronunciation and Reading of Ancient Greek: A Practical Guide and to several lines of his recitatio...

Looking for some Comenius transcriptions

I was watching one of Randy Gibbons' Youtube videos, and he mentions an Orbis transcription by a Stephen Hill, and a Janua transcription by someone named Felipe Vogel. Does anyone have links to them or copies of them? I haven't been able to find them anywhere.

Thanks,

Edward

Howdy

Hi everyone, My name's Edward. I live in Atlanta, and I'm a web developer by trade, with a background in biology. I'm here mostly because I'm trying to learn Ancient Greek. I had 4 years of Latin in high school, ~20 years ago, and I actually wanted to move on to Ancient Greek back then, but it never...

Re: T. K. Arnold's Greek Ollendorff translation

It sounds to me like you are volunteering. :D I suppose his personal papers are in a library somewhere . The other thing is to see if his descendants have any sort of Facebook page. Along with Evan, I would love to see a Greek Greek Ollendorff. First step might be to put Jeidsath, who is really goo...

T. K. Arnold's Greek Ollendorff translation

I have a copy of Kendrick's "Greek Ollendorff", and it seems very good, but Evan der Millner of Latinum mentions an unpublished full translation of Ollendorff for Ancient Greek: Thomas Kerchever Arnold, M.A. apparently made a full translation of Ollendorff's text into Ancient Greek, but did not publ...
