Randall Buth wrote:A Greek mono doesn't exist. What is truly a desideratum is a Greek-Greek tome....Greek-Greek dictionaries would both help and speed up your learning of synonyms and their relationships. bi-lingual is OK for a start, but you/we need Greek-Greek for arriving.
χαίρετε, φίλοι,Stephen Hughes wrote:You do something similar with semantic lexical meaning everytime you pick up a Greek to English dictionary. Rather than the word having a context in Greek with synonyms, antonyms and usual collocations, it is given outside its own Greek context with a (pseudo-)equivalence with English, or an English meaning / context explanation. There is some benefit in building up knowledge from those crutches and scaffolds, but it is not altogether a natural approach to mastery of a language as a language in itself.
