Did the Ancient Greeks know they were Greek? I know there were terms such as Hellene and Achaean, but at least in Classical Greece, their first loyalty was to the Polis.

Χριστὸς ἀνέστη?

Χαίρετε!

I am writing Χριστὸς ἀνέστη with a grave accent at the end of the noun. Is that correct for two word phrases? Modern Greek uses an acute, but it got rid of the grave and circumflex accents.

Principal Part Question

Χαίρετε

For indicative, a velar consonant before an ending tends to become an ξ in the future and aorist tenses. Example: δοκέω, δόξω, ἔδοξα. But then I read ἀδικέω, ἀδικήσω, ἠδίκησα. Why did the second set of verbs keep the κ? Just because it is a bit irregular?

Re: This and That

In Unit 13, Part III, exercise 5, I was supposed to write, "Those beloved children" in the accusative. I wrote, "Ταῦτα τὰ φίλα παιδία." The answer book wrote, "ἐκεϊνα τὰ φίλα παιδία.." I am unable to fine the line between Ταῦτα and ἐκεϊνα . Would different authors have written different words for it?

Re: Contract Verbs in--έω

Is the ω a contraction of ε and ε? It seems like that would be an ει. Maybe it is a contraction of the final ε plus the ω? What process is being used to get from the original to the contracted form?
