This very old book by Farnell on Greek Conditional and Relative sentences will be useful to those like me who find the treatment in general textbooks is too brief.

There is a similar free offline app for the iPhone/iPad – it's called Logeion, created by the University of Chicago Classics Department.

You can use the app to search many of the reference works in the Perseus Classical collection in both Latin and Greek, provided you install the Greek keyboard layout on your device.

Two resources of Ancient Greek and Latin texts in French:

Hodoi elekronikai du texte à l'hypertexte
http://mercure.fltr.ucl.ac.be/Hodoi/con ... /intro.htm

For Ancient Greek Texts, the Home Page lists authors whose texts are in the collection, and its coverage is similar to Perseus's.

With the individual work for each author, there is a separate page for

- a list of word forms in the work
- an inverse list of word forms, in alphabetical order by LAST letter of the word

e.g., for δ
21 δ
1 οὐδ

- frequencies of words
- appearance of the words in other texts
- the context of the words in the current text
e.g., for Plutarch's "Sylla":
Chapitre [33] γέ τοι βουλόμενος οἰκειώσασθαι τὸν Μάγνον,

- the context of the words in the current text, but by last letter
- a link to the Bibliotheca Classica Selecta (BCS)

For many but not all of the works there is a French translation. Except for the translations in French, I would guess you could make use of this site even without a knowledge of French.

Their site for Latin texts is here:

ἐς Τροίαν πειρώμενοι ἦνθον ᾿Αχαιοί,
καλλίστα παίδων: πείρᾳ θην πάντα τελεῖται.

1) Geoffrey Steadman's digital editions of Greek and Latin texts: http://geoffreysteadman.com/
There are now editions similar to Steadman's, but not digital, and not, as far as I can tell, free in any way.
The authors of one set of such words are Evan Hayes and Stephen Nimis, and the author of another set is C. T. Hadavas. All three are academics, and you can probably find their works at your favorite bookseller.

This is a list of works originally composed in Latin for which a Greek translation exists on the Internet (mostly on Google Books). Obviously, the percentage of Greek works translated into Latin is much higher.

I have added a pdf with the section on Book 1 of Xenophon's Anabasis
from
Expeditio Cyri / Xenophon; by J.F. MacMichael.

It is crude ( I used a camera not a scanner) but nonetheless usable.
You will find it here:
http://kart-hadasht.co.uk/anc/greeklang/

(scroll down to the section headed Commentaries)

Ouch! :oops: And not the first time I made that mistake. However this gives me a chance to mention that now also downloadable from the same page (http://kart-hadasht.co.uk/anc/greeklang/) is Commentary on The Oeconomicus by A.H.N. Sewell which is a proper scan. Sewell did include the Greek text along with his commentary but suspect most will go to Perseus for that.

Thanks for pointing out my error I apologies to all who followed the link in vain.

Just FYI, that's known as the "lunate" sigma, meaning it's shaped like a half-moon. The OCT actually published some texts using it (Diggle's Euripides, for one), but that was also the time when they switched to prefaces in English. And the prices have gone through the roof as the bindings have gone to hell. I can't believe OUP thinks they deserve our money any more. (I guess this post went kinda sideways...)

State of the art free software project as of 2018: alpheios Firefox Browser addon
-featurecomplete
a "mouse over look up" included, on key (doubleclick)
-waterproof a syntaxmachine for words and even sentences
-linked to off(?)- and online Greek main web dictionaries?
What do you neet more?
-Understanding the code of a grammar machine these days, might be the most proper way of being occupied with it - for some to note: You could start with it now.

just for completeness I used:
Up to now
-for simple grammar I use https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altgriechische_Flexion, which is really other than complete,
-for translation beneath reading I used for bible koine: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?s ... T;LUTH1545
-and for dictionary I mark, copy a word (with the finger) on my android smart phone, switch the browser window and paste it, being online it to lexiconkatabibloncom,

Julius Tomin owns a website (http://juliustomin.org/home.html) that features a number of items concerning Ancient Greek. Of most interest to me is a substantial number of readings. There are readings of 16 dialogues and of the Seventh Letter of Plato, as well as some readings from Aristotle, Homer, Xenophon, Isocrates, Alcidamas, Lysias, Pindar, and the New Testament.

I sampled his reading of Phaedo, 57a1-58c5 (2:39 minutes), and found it clear and understandable.

With a couple of exceptions that he notes, Tomin's pronunciation is in accord, apparently (he does not quite say so specifically), with the CD "Speaking Greek" produced by the Joint Association of Classical Teachers, and published by the Cambridge University Press.

Tomin is Czech. Here's Wikipedia's bio of him. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julius_Tomin

καλλίστα παίδων: πείρᾳ θην πάντα τελεῖται.
