Re: Looking for a study-partner

χαιρε, ω φιλε Ενακ! I would be happy to chat in Greek with you if you could do it via Google Hangouts. I understand you need a smartphone to do Whatsapp, and I don't have one. If this would work for you, let me know and we'll arrange a time. Otherwise, you could message me here with PM and practice ...

Re: KOINE PHRASEBOOK

χαιρε, Σαυλε!

I'm not seeing the updated link to the phrasebook. I just see a snipet showing the phrasebook columns. When I click on that nothing happens, though. I'd really like to have the update. I do use Google Docs and Sheets, so I'm fine with those formats.

Re: Nunn's Syntax of Attic Greek

Thanks for this info, Jean. I had seen earlier that Archive.org has books to borrow, but hadn't thought to check on borrowing Nunn. I'll gladly look into it.

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

Hi Stephen, Thanks for the helpful feedback! Yes, I chose ξανθός for the bread because of the crust color. I'll keep it and the choice for red for now. As for λευκος, you're right that it doesn't go as well with βιβλιον, although the one pictured does look that way. It is, of course, an idealized on...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

Χαιρε, ω φιλε Στεφανε! Ευχαριστω σοι υπερ το εργον των χρωματων! This is great, Stephen! This is exactly the sort of everyday vocabulary that is commonly part of the early stage of learning a modern language. Sadly, it typically isn’t common for it to be part of first year Ancient Greek, of any vari...

Re: Koine NT in UNCIAL script ONLINE

Hi Tim,

Definitely a cool edition! Thanks for sharing. A slight correction, though: you have Η ΚΑΙΝΕ ΔΙΑΘΗΚΗ for the title. ΚΑΙΝΕ should be ΚΑΙΝΗ.

Re: New Greek Teacher

Adam and Dr. Shirley, It seems I left the wrong impression with my comment about how native languages are learned. I only meant to say that we become good readers in our first language because we have learned to communicate in it, i.e., we have internalized it. So, we need to internalize the Greek i...

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

So, are we positing a schwa or "uh" sound between the upsilon and the nu? Not an exact parallel, but I've heard a modern Greek speaker do this between π and ν in πνευμα. Ιt's in an audio of the Koine GNT produced by an Orthodox monk for the Greek Bible Society.
