Re: Even the reference to Australia?

Yes, the reference to Australia. It helps people hear the accent.

Re: Christianised classical heritage

Reading those texts that I mentioned is following the Byzantine educational system. The great fathers; Basil, Gregory, Gregory, John Chrysostom and Julian the apostate would have all started with those texts, then moved on to Lysias and Sophocles and then eventually on to Demosthenes. Later student...

I've been fairly heavy on a reading-grammar methodology, but since this is a one trimester elective, I plan to experiment with a much more oral/aural, conversational method.

Re: Classical Greek Grammars for High School Students

I used Crosby & Schaeffer supplemented with Athenaze. If I get enough students for next year's Greek elective, I plan to use quite a different approach, but probably with Athenaze as the base text.

Re: John 3:8 τὸ πνεῦμα ὅπου θέλει πνεῖ

Perhaps someone can offer me an explanation for what seems to be a overwhelmingly accepted translation of the this verse by the body of scholarship. In the vast majority of the English translations τὸ πνεῦμα ὅπου θέλει πνεῖ is translated as "The wind blows where it wishes." I find this rather inter...

Re: Perhaps you mean Thaddeus?

The issue in the above remark is not about the missing verb (ἐποίησεν, fecit) in D d – a “missing middle” example –, but about the name ΪΟΥΔΑΣ, iudas in the nominative form – cf. W… – not agreeing with the missing verb , as do the eleven other names (in the accusative form). Maybe someone would say...

Re: Perhaps you mean Thaddeus?

You and me know that the Gospels  ( The New Testament ) were written, rewritten and “corrected” along the first years of Christianism – less of Marcion and more of “Luke” in Luke , this Gospel of the Lord revisited –, until this garbage of Byzantine Text (or the Peshitta against the Vetus Syriaca …...

Re: An accusative absolute ? [Mk 3, 15var] [W 032]

[Okay, we have two ablative-absolute constructions here, illo exercitum vel per senatum vel per tribunos obtinente and illo patiente atque obtinente provinciam , neither of them problematic, so far as I can see. However, this forum is for discussion of Greek syntax and grammar; let's not get more d...

Re: Perseus, Alpheios, and Corpus-Based Language Learning

At the Perseus site, I can click any word and use the Perseus word tool to get all the goody info on the word. It too will prioritize the lemmata if there is more than one possibility. I know that Alpheios works independently on any site that is written in the target language, but how does the resul...
