Alrighty. Starting chapter 2! We can extend the next chapter to 3 weeks if people aren't caught up enough.
Yeah, if you don't mind. I've had a busy couple of weeks. I worked from 5:30am to 3:00pm today, and I'm now home (5pm). I'm finally getting to sit down with Smyth and Dickey after giving two two-hour Hebrew sessions on Skype yesterday morning to a couple of students.

I've got a lot of reading to do, and I put together the vocab for the first five chapters of Dickey on Quizlet. Just haven't had the time that I wanted.

I'm requesting an extension of the activities of chapter 2. ;)

Wouldn't worry me. I am just into the Analysis exercises myself. Slowed myself down by typing them (probably be a benefit in the end) into a LibreOffice doc so I could apply Dickey's analysis method from Appendix C more rigorously. And had to switch keyboard mappings on the way due to problem with one of them. Oh well.

Thx

We've now had 3 weeks for chapter 2, so it's about time we start on chapter 3. I, however, won't be ready for a couple days (it has been a few busy weeks for me). We can move on anyway and I can get caught up, but full analyses for ch 2 haven't been posted yet, so I'm guessing we're not ready yet. So I guess we'll extend for a few more days

I plan on posting my analyses for chapter 2 in the next two or three days.

I just finished the analysis section of chapter 2. I tried to follow the instructions from chapter 6 and from Appendix C on how to perform the analysis. I didn't follow the "name that rule" instruction at all. It just doesn't stick for me that way.

I'm just beginning to read chapter 3. By the way, I looked forward to chapter 5 the other, and it's gonna get interesting.

I'm just well behind in every aspect of my life :)

But I have the advantage of having done several chapters of this book already, so I'm hopeful of joining back in the fun soon.

Hey, Seumas. A little off-track, but I just saw your LGPSI yesterday. Have you passed it through competent editors to get corrections?

Not in the sense that a competent editor has deliberately and systematically reviewed it, no.

But the whole project is essentially an Alpha release. And a work in progress. And open to input and corrections from anyone, so feel free to send me your own. But if you catch "bad Greek" from it, well, I take responsibility but not blame.

Will start exercises tomorrow hopefully.
