Re: Use B-Greek for Dickey's composition book?

Jason proposed that we start this off with a thread or two and make sure it has momentum before creating a sub-forum. I agree. Sounds fine to me. Also: Dickey's book is not easy. Plan on going slow. People may move at different rates. Just be aware of that ... Yes, it is quite difficult :D

[Dickey] Group Proposal

I am once again desirous of working through Dickey's Greek composition book with other people. A few folks on Twitter and I chatted about it the other day and at least a few of us thought a forum would work well for this. I'm wondering if anyone would mind us using the Writing In Greek section for t...
