[Dickey] Ch 0: Exercise A

Post by EricSowell » July 21st, 2019, 10:30 pm

See this thread for general info and discussion about what we're doing here

This week our goal is to complete the first part of the book, the pre-work on accentuation, pages 1-7. I've attached a text file containing all the material to be accented, without accents, so you don't have to type everything from scratch. Our goal is to have this completed by July 28th.

If you don't have the book yet, this section of the book is in the free excerpt here.

When you complete yours, reply to this thread with it. If you have anything to discuss, reply to the thread.

Note that I've changed the topic to include only Exercise A (from pages 5–6). There is a LOT to cover in that one exercise, so I figured it was a good idea (as someone suggested) that we break it up by exercise and not by chapter.

I hope that's acceptable!

I did the exercise and found a few things on mine to correct. No need in this case to paste a copy of things. However, I did find a couple differences of the same kind that I wanted to discuss, the feminine accents for γενναῖος and ἀνδρεῖος.

Me: γενναία (fem), γενναίας (gen), γενναίᾳ, γενναίαν, γενναῖαι, γενναίων, γενναίαις, γενναίας (acc)
You: γενναῖα (fem), γενναίας (gen), γενναίᾳ, γενναῖαν, γενναῖαι, γενναίων, γενναίαις, γενναίας (acc)

Me: ἀνδρεία (fem), ἀνδρείας (gen), ἀνδρείᾳ, ἀνδρείαν, ἀνδρεῖαι, ἀνδρείων, ἀνδρείαις, ἀνδρείας (acc)
You: ἀνδρεῖα (fem), ἀνδρείας (gen), ἀνδρείᾳ, ἀνδρεῖαν, ἀνδρεῖαι, ἀνδρείων, ἀνδρείαις, ἀνδρείας (acc)


In the nominative and accusative singulars, I believe the -α is long, so that would force the penult to be acute. I think the rule that the α as long following ε, ι, ρ would mean that this is the case.

Thoughts?

I believe you're correct in the context of the exercise, since it concerns adjectives whose masculine ends in -αῖος; see Smyth § 286a "When ε, ι, or ρ (30, 218) precedes -ος the feminine ends in -ᾱ, not in -η.

That's how a read Dickey on this. Dickey does mention, in a parenthesis to rule 5 on page 4, that first dimension adjectives in α always have a long α.
John Lee doesn't describe it in the same way but he gets to the same accenting.

Thx

You're right. I had ἀνδρεῖα (neut. pl.) in my mind, and I carried it over to the feminine (*ἀνδρεῖαν). I have to confess that huge walls of text like this just exhaust me.
