Re: [Dickey] Group Progress

We've now had 3 weeks for chapter 2, so it's about time we start on chapter 3. I, however, won't be ready for a couple days (it has been a few busy weeks for me). We can move on anyway and I can get caught up, but full analyses for ch 2 haven't been posted yet, so I'm guessing we're not ready yet. S...

Re: [Dickey] Ch 2: Sentences

This part added another hour and twenty minutes to the exercise. 22. Slaves, O young man, are never citizens. JH: οἱ δοῦλοι, ὦ νεανία, οὐδέποτε πολῖται. ES: οἱ δοῦλοι, ὦ νεανίας, οὐδέποτε πολίται. I assume νεανία is a vocative form? 23. Only the shameful citizen never had his sister educated. The sa...

Re: [Dickey] Ch 2: Sentences

I'm running late on this but will get it done in the next two or three days. Working through the first 21 sentences and then comparing them to yours today took me about an hour and fourty five minutes. So yeah. It's tiring. Here's my comments on 11-21. I think I made an average of about one mistake ...

g. οἱ οὐ κακοὶ μανθάνουσιν. // μανθάνουσιν οἱ οὐ κακοί.
It looks to me that this one is supposed to be general, so perhaps οἱ μὴ κακοὶ μανθάνειν.

Re: Dickey, Composition: Ch 2, Preliminary Exercises

I think most of the "recommended grammar reading" from Smyth is paradigms, accents, and the like. If someone has a decent grasp on basic declensions, that's unnecessary reading for this chapter in my opinion. It obviously won't hurt though. I read most of the recommended syntax reading and also read...

Re: Dickey, Composition: Ch 2, Preliminary Exercises

Alright, I'll start this one off. Here are preliminary exercises 1 and 2. I left out the ones that the answer key covers. Preliminary Exercise 1 j. the young women in the marketplace (dat. 2 ways) * ταῖς νέαις ταῖς ἐν ἀγορᾷ * ταῖς ἐν ἀγορᾷ νέαις k. slaves of the young men (nom) * δοῦλοι οἱ τῶν νέων ...

Re: Dickey, Composition: Ch 1, Analysis

What is the purpose of the ὅτι in the phrase ὅπως ὅτι ἀπαρασκευότατον λάβοι βασιλέα ? Wouldn't it be exactly the same without it ( ὅπως [...] ἀπαρασκευότατον λάβοι βασιλέα )? Steadman's reader, Mather and Hewitt's commentary, and Crosby's Lexicon on the Anabasis all say that ὅτι + superlative mean ...

Re: Group Working Through Dickey's Greek Composition

Alrighty. Starting chapter 2! We can extend the next chapter to 3 weeks if people aren't caught up enough.
