Re: Free Liddell and Scott Greek-English Lexicon for the Kin

And wouldn't you know it but I just got a kindle 3 keyboard for Christmas. Do you think the wife will notice if I swap it for a touch?!

Nonetheless thank you for the response and your work on the dictionary.

Re: Free Liddell and Scott Greek-English Lexicon for the Kin

It seems I can make the lexicon my primary dictionary on the kindle, however, the automatic look up still doesn't work. Does anyone else have this working? I am using two different editions of the Odyssey found on Mobile read.com...

Re: Transitional Readers: Anyone familiar with this series?

Lina, I have worked through much of the Plato book and have generally found it useful. Essentially what they do is take a passage, simplify its syntax (ie changing participles to finite verbs, changes to the word order..etc) for the first reading and then slowly add those elements back into the pass...

Re: greek text on android

The Logos app also has free access to the entire Perseus library in Greek, Latin and English. Dictionary lookups, however, work relatively well for the Greek, but not so well in Latin, unfortunately. Something to build upon for later releases, I suppose...

polytonic greeknon android

This is to update a thread a while back about polytonic Greek text on android. I recently installed the Opera browser available in the app market on my Acer Iconia A500, and found that it does indeed do polytonic Greek, at least on this system. I have viewed a blog with some Greek text, Perseus and ...

Re: What are you reading right now?

I just received my copy of Pharr's Aeneid and plan to tuck into that right away. Until now I have been busy with Nepos' life of Alcibiades and finding it rather difficult, this despite other's claims that he is one of the easier authors!

Re: New Members Introduction Thread (New Users Post Here!)

Hi All I am a long time lurker and only recently have I decided to become a member here. I have taken some instruction in Latin, but only one year. Since, I have continued my Latin and am making some gains, and even reading Virgil and Ovid with some profit and pleasure. During a recent deployment to...

Phaedo 57a

Hi All I am a long time lurker first time poster who finds himself stymied by two words at the beginning of the Phaedo: τί οὖν δή ἐστιν ἅττα εἶπεν ὁ ἀνὴρ πρὸ τοῦ θανάτου; καὶ πῶς ἐτελεύτα; ἡδέως γὰρ ἂν ἐγὼ ἀκούσαιμι. καὶ γὰρ οὔτε [τῶν πολιτῶν] Φλειασίων οὐδεὶς πάνυ τι ἐπιχωριάζει τὰ νῦν Ἀθήναζε, οὔτ...
