Ancient and Modern Greek on LingQ

I don't think there was ever a general announcement here, but after a long wait we finally got Modern Greek added as a supported language on the language learning website http://www.lingq.com . (full disclosure: I'm just a happy user of the site.) There is a fair amount of MG material online to use,...

Re: Anyone interested in a Greek reading group for the Odyss

I would be interested in participating, have you started already? Are you located in Europe? I'm in France, and I've found I don't work very well with reading groups on other continents, no matter what time they're set up. :)

Re: Rome, July 2018: Ancient Greek Intensive Course

FWIW I took these classes four years ago and they were fantastic. I went from having a basic understanding of the grammar (having worked through the first ten chapters of Hansen & Quinn previously) to reading Koine Greek directly from the bible during that summer.

Highly recommended.

This is really excellent: will there be a Latin and Greek side-by-side version available in paper some day? I would certainly buy it!

Re: Books of a Nature not Necessarily Academic but Nice*

Wonderful, thank you. I'm noting all of these down, and I'll be purchasing a good deal of them. (I'm hesitating between making 2014 a Homer year or a Heidegger year; as a Germanist, I'm much further along in the latter. ;) ) In any case, please feel free to throw in the "proper" Homeralia as well, I...

Re: Books of a Nature not Necessarily Academic but Nice*

Wonderful thread, thanks guys! Might I be so bold as to ask, in a similar vein, for five or six titles specifically on Homer, for a classics oriented but still less than professional academic readership? Say you were going to teach a seminar on Homer and Greek epic poetry to a group of highly-motiva...

Re: Bible commentary in Koine?

Great, thanks!

On a side note: I'd like to order at least one copy (vol. 2) from Lulu, can you tell me how the print looks? The preview looks slightly rough, but perhaps that's just their poor resolution for the pages they display on the website? Have you had a chance to see them on paper?

Bible commentary in Koine?

Does anyone know whether there exist commentaries of the Bible written in Koine? I'd like to include a Koine commentary along with my English commentaries as I work my way through the Greek NT. Even a paraphrase (à la Gaza) would be helpful.

Re: Vocab sorted via NT book?

As far as I remember, both Anki (flashcard program) and Memrise (website) offer decks that are keyed to common textbooks. You just have to search a bit. I use both services every day, but in Anki I use the 80% Greek vocab deck, and on memrise I'm working through Greek Prose Composition (thanks Bedwe...

Can someone recommend resources for reading about the relationship between Hellenistic philosophy and the development of Christianity?

Re: Whic GNT do you use?

I was in Rome in July and bought a paperback copy of the UBS Greek New Testament A Reader's Edition at a book store near the Vatican, and I've come to really enjoy reading it. I also have a cheap interlinear that I've stopped using all together, and I spend a fair amount of time using Logos on my co...

Interference between dialects?

As someone who is interested in learning it all (Attic, Koine, Homeric, Church Fathers, LXX, etc.), I'm curious whether I should be wary of vocabulary and grammatical interference when reading different dialects. I started with Attic last December, and worked through most of Hansen and Quinn, while ...

Bookstore suggestions in Rome?

Salve!

I'm currently in Rome taking part in the Polis summer school in Ancient Greek, and I'm having problems finding a quality bookstore that might have classics texts such as the Italian version of Athenaze and other Vivarium Novum books. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Reading Plato 2013

I would certainly be willing to participate, but since I'm also a relatively new to Greek (through chapter 5 in Hansen and Quinn, but moving fast. :)), I might not be very useful to the undertaking. However, if you'd like to work through something like Steadman's Symposium (also downloadable as a pd...

Hello everyone, does anyone know where I might find a copy-and-pastable list of exercises for all the Hansen and Quinn chapters? I'd like to input the Greek sentences into an anki deck, and I'm not excited about typing them all in by hand myself. I thought if someone had already done the work, I mig...
