πεπαίδευνται is a little tricky, but we do utter this combination in English: seventy ˈsɛvnti A bit off the point, but that final "t" in "seventy" is simply an unaspirated "t."

Re: New Greek Teacher

Adam Denoon, You love Koine and you have a desire to help your students learn and love it, too. That’s the main thing. GNT: Your choice of GNT is good. I use a similar book and love it. Interlinears are unnatural spawn. Recommendation about classes: You are learning to teach a language - not an easy...

Using this set (currently, 64 words) to define a concept is called an explication (via the process, called reductive paraphrasing ). This is said to avoid the typical pro...

Re: Ancient Greek Dictionary in Ancient Greek

I bought it. The price is high because it is a well made, quality book, especially the weight of paper. It has plenty of room for notes. If a person wanted to have an sort of "dialogue" with the author in Koine, I think it could be a fruitful learning exercise. I haven't done so yet, but still hope ...
