Re: Modern Greek equivalent of Loebs

Those editions look intriguing. I have been buying up as many of the ΠΑΠΥΡΟΣ editions as I can find. They look really cool, are cheap, and the translation is an older form of the modern language. A lot of the vocab is the same and the syntax is closer to the original while filling in what is difficu...

Spanish equivalent of Loebs

Does anyone know if there is any collection of books that would be the Spanish equivalent to the English Loeb series with Latin and Spanish in paralinear format?

Re: Modern Greek equivalent of Loebs

Yeah I've been working with a book store owner in Athens and have been slowly collecting the ΠΑΠΥΡΟΣ series. They are a beautiful set with fake gold inlays. Looks cool. Also I like that the translation is "light-katharevousa". It's like reading a "leveled" version of the ancient Greek.

Modern Greek equivalent of Loebs

Are there any editions of classical Greek texts containing modern Greek on one side and classical Greek on the other? Like the Loebs but in modern Greek instead of English.

Occasionally it is asserted that a word in a clause is placed at the begining or the end because the author is trying to highlight the word.

My question is which holds more weightiness? The front or the back of the clause? Also why would you choose one or the other?

Re: Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp

Instead of "Οἱ δὲ μόλις παυσάμενοι."

Perhaps "Οἱ δὲ ὀλίγου δεὶ παυσάμενοι."

I've seen μόλις used in more of a sense of "difficulty finishing" than a "lack of completion" sense.

But maybe there is some semantic shift in koine.
