Re:I can't work out this form:

Could I have a go and suggest this might be:<br /> the indicative middle perfect third person plural of<br />[size=150] ἀνοικοδομέω <br />with a meaning something along the lines of:<br />they have built themselves up/ built up for themselves?

[size=150] 0Ὠ Ἑλληνισται σοφωτεροι<br /><br />Just a note to say that I commend you on this enjoyable site; it has spurred me on to learn ‘a little Greek’ – and am using with some profit the first Greek book by J J White. Could I ask a couple of questions arising?<br /><br />On page 86, para 342, Q 1 there is<br />[size=150]ἑπεσθαι<br />now, is this the aorist infin of e9pomai and if so, why/how?<br /><br />Secondly, if I might ask you (in my best optative), what might a good translation be of para 375, page 96, Q 9, that goes:<br />[size=150] και συν αὐτοις μεν ἀν τιμιος, αὐτων δε εἰ ἐρημος εἰην, οὐκ ἀν ἱκανος εἰην τους φιλους ὠφελειν.<br /><br />With thanks and [size=150] χαιρε :)<br />
