Re:Plan of action

hey i like Xenophon :-) What's wrong with "the army of the greeks moved here.. the general's army shall move there, the army crossed the river, the army has 300 hoplites, the allies of the Greeks are brave, Cyrus commanded both a large fleet and army ..." ok, maybe I'm seeing your point.<br /><br />

Re:Easy readers

Will do, I have been a little too Greeky lately... right now i'm working on 2 Latin Books, Livy Books 1 & 2 from Ginn's CSOLA and Extracts from Cicero. The Latin Reader is from Harkness - sorta old. It'll have to get in line behind all the books that have already been photocopied - 6 or 7.

Re:Easy readers

Yes, of course - that sounds like a good subject. We really listen to our visitors in terms of picking what books to convert. It'll have to wait in line though, I'm up to my elbows in books that need to be put online :-)

Re:English to Attic Greek Dictionary

Hi Again,<br /><br />I understand your point and agree with you. I was pretty sure you didn't need my 'advice', but I wanted to make it clear for the absolute beginner that learning construction, syntax and vocabulary presented through grammar/compostion books is top priorty and best best use of tim...

Re:Classical Enthusiasts

hi Erica,<br /><br />Glad to hear that. If you wish to begin Greek - look for White's First Greek Book, which we will have posted within a week or two. It is a very good beginner's greek book.<br /><br />jeff

Greetings From Jeff

I read somewhere that creating a board for introductions and off-topic postings would help induce lurkers into posting. <br /><br />So I'm giving it a try.. ;)<br /><br />Welcome to my site. As you can tell, I like posting free downloadable Greek and Latin Grammars.

Re:English to Attic Greek Dictionary

hello yet again, i don't know if you need this advice or not, but just in case you or someone else reading this thread does, allow me to add my two cents about composition exercises....<br /><br /><br />Why do you feel you need a lexicon? If it's to help with your composition exercises then let me s...

Re:English to Attic Greek Dictionary

Hi There,<br /><br />For now, we don't plan on posting a lexicon such as Liddel & Scott. Reason being is that it would be extremely difficult to use the file without converting the scanned images to digital text that can be searched and navigated. We do like to post lexicons and vocabulary lists tha...

Hi there,<br /><br />I tested the file with both IE browsers and also Mozilla - everything checked out ok. I would suggest first trying to dowload the file before opening it. This will remove the browser from the equation and you can then see if its a problem with Acrobat Reader.<br /><br />As far a...

Re:Classical Enthusiasts

Hi there - count me in for wanting more participation. But I installed the forum so I guess that's a given.<br /><br />Forums take a lot of time to get off the ground. This forum has been crawling along.... :'( - but I'm patient.<br /><br />thanks for your interest..<br />jeff
