How much do you know at this point? Are you comfortable with
the alphabet? Can you read simple sentences? Have you read
anything in Greek? The next step depends a lot on how far
along you are already. I'm self-taught, as are several others
here. This is a great place to ask advice!

Well, it *does* tend to be all about that. If I leave out most of
a w-, you can probably g- what I mean fairly easily because
of the c-. The sentence structure carries a lot of the meaning.

There isn't anything that is very far along yet, though there are
at least two sites starting on this, and a third which I know
about. In a year or so, this should be easier to find.
