Hello everyone!

I am finishing my second year of N.T. Greek and wish to continue my
learning. I used Summers text for the first year and Vaughan/Gideon this
year. I have Machen, Dana & Mantey, and Nunn as well as some other
grammars. I am interested in what steps I should take next to continue my
learning at home. It appears to me that I would like to learn the Modern
Greek pronunciation in order to be able to use my sense of hearing to fix
the syntax and euphony of the language in my mind. So I was going to spend
a year going through Machen's Grammar using Modern Greek pronuciation and
doing all the English to Greek exercises. At the same time, I thought I
would begin to translate one verse a day from the Gospel of John and diagram
it. Am I on the right track? Is this the right forum to discuss textual
issues? Will I be wasting your time with things you all already know?

I would also be interested in obtaining the capability to type the Greek
lanquage with all the diacritical marks. Do any of you know how I could do
this? Thanks for your help. Theophelous(Theo) Michael Pope...No the Pope
is not Greek!
