word choice: "Another Perspective"

Hello all, I'm trying to figure out a good way to say "another perspective" in Greek. I'm thinking "ἄλλος/η/ο ______", but can't figure out what to put in the blank. ὄψις? ἄποψις? Or what? What I'm really trying to say is "a different perspective", which I think in English is connotated by "another"...

The only thing I'm still a bit confused about is, how can πάντα τὰ ὑπά?χοντα be the subject of συνᾴδει? Isn't πάντα τὰ ὑπά?χοντα neuter plural, while συνᾴδει is singular?

Negative passive periphrastics

I am a bit confused about how negative passive periphrastic sentences work. The future passive participle contains the notion of obligation. So, for example, "Carthago non delenda est" appears to me to mean something like "Carthage is not needing-to-be-destroyed", or in other words, "Carthage doesn'...

And how about tempus?

You would think tempus must be 2nd declension masculine, wouldn't you? But only after seeing its genitive (temporis) would you know that it is actually 3rd declension.

Even then, how can you determine the gender? You can't, so the dictionary has to tell you.

Accents on nouns are called persistent . They try to stay on the same syllable throughout declension. You must simply memorize where the accent on a given noun is. Verbs' accents, however, are recessive . They go as far back as possible in the word. (i.e. if the ultima is short, the antepenult is ac...

Aurelia wrote:ἡ τῆς βασιλείας φιλία ἐστὶ τιμὴ τῆ νύμφη.[/size]
The friendship of the queens is hounour to the bride.
Queen would be singular there.
Aurelia wrote:τὴν δόξαν τῆς )αρετῆς ἔχουσιν[/size]
He has the reputation of the virtue.
ἔχουσιν is plural there (They have..). The definite article can also be used idefinitely with abstract nouns (I dunno if that's the right way to say that, but what I mean is ἡ ἀρετή can translate as 'virtue'.)
Aurelia wrote:Athena praises the wisdom of the Muses.
ἡ ἀθηνα )επαινεῖ τήν τῶν μουσῶν σοφίαν[/size]
-I just wanted to make sure I'm putting the Posessive Genitive in the right place.
That's fine. You can also repeat the article of the modified noun and then put the modifying noun (τὴν σοφίαν τὴν τῶν μουσῶν) or put the article of the modified noun after the modified noun (σοφίαν τὴν τῶν μουσῶν).

The way you did it emphasizes the possession. The other two make it more of an afterthought, the last being more afterthought-ish.

Here's my shot at a line of hexameter. Please point out errors:

I'm relying on the fact that the last syllable would be long because it is the last of the verse.
