Thank you for your charitable approach -- I was too telegraphic in my
reply; I meant to add that there were _pronunciation_ tutorials ( and
practices ) side by side withe the ones for accentuation..

And, yes, for someone who announced that " I am teaching myself Biblical
Greek " I thought a general caveat might be appropriate for a page which
announces itself as a tutorial in Attic Greek.
