Re: Personality Types

INFP, with a high degree of certainty. But the NF are fairly weak and I share traits w/ ST.
Hmm... Let me see...
INFP
That about sizes it up.

Re: Methods for learning Greek

If anybody wants to try it out, I have some flashcards there I could make public. I would be interested. I am signing up for an account there even as I type. I most definitely tend to prefer actual things to virtual simulations, and I am putting a lot of work into creating cards to use with White. ...

Does anybody use VocabWorks?

I'm hoping somebody has already made up a complete or near complete set of vocabs for White's book in VocabWorks. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Re: GreekGeek.org

I can tell you what happened. This sort of thing is fairly common on the web with sites owned by individuals. The previous holder of the domain name let it lapse, whether intentionally or not. Then some company or person snapped up "GreekGeek.org" cheap, and threw up a quicky site with lots of links...

Thank you, Markos, for the answer. Although Scott beat me to asking the question, your answered mine as well, and very nicely.

Re: Newbie questions, What are realistic expectations?

And I have John Dobson's book, but I have a hard time with his highly inductive approach. Scott, I began with Dobson and really loved him until about lesson 18. Then I hit a wall. I have discovered, on the web, that I am not the only person for whom that was the magical chapter. I really love the i...

new books arrived!

Not that anybody should care, but I don't have anyone immediately to hand in my life who could get properly excited for me. I just received by mail my copy of the intermediate Liddel and Loeb's Lucian, vol. 1. I am still waiting for Patristic Greek Reader . Reading Lucian is way way way down the roa...

Re: Newbie questions, What are realistic expectations?

Howdy! Welcome to Textkit. I am so happy to read your question, not because I have any answer for you but because I could have written it myself, almost word for word, and have in fact been thinking about how to word it. I start and end with the desire to read the New Testament. But it seems that ma...

Re: Tips for Beginners?

I have been plunking around with learning Greek for some time, but only recently have gotten really serious. I had been using the 2nd edition of Dobson's book, which does not use accents, and have now switched to White's First Greek Book , which does. The only thing more confusing to me than not hav...

Complete download found! [was: Re: Pages still missing....

I found a PDF of the entire book, with no (as far as I can see) pages missing. If there are any pages missing, they are not the same ones missing from the Textkit version. Since I am new to this forum and can not post links, I will tell you that if you go to Google Books (books.google.com) and searc...

Hello, all. I am Sean, new (again) to this forum. My interest is in Greek, primarily for New Testament reading. However, I refuse to "learn NT Greek" in terms of decoding one document. I want to learn the language, and, within that context, to be able to read the NT and other early Christian writing...

Dear Norbert, I thank you for this. I am certainly no expert, just a learner, and I admit I have not used your new tool enough yet to know if it will prove useful. But I certainly like what I see and believe it will prove useful as an adjunct to my other resources. And it is even sort of fun as an a...
