[Dickey] Ch 0: Exercises C & D

Post by EricSowell » July 27th, 2019, 4:00 pm

For information on this, see this starter thread.

Odd note: I thought I had posted this a couple hours ago but I don't see it. Maybe it went into a review queue? Or maybe I'm just absent-minded and forgot to hit the submit button (this happens). Either way, here are exercises C & D (possibly again).

C

καλός τις
καλοί τινες
καλοῦ τινος
καλῶν τινων
καλαῖς τισι
δένδρον τι
δένδρα τινά
δένδρων τινῶν
δένδρῳ τινί
δένδροις τε
μικροί τινες
μικρός τε καί
μικρά γέ ἐστι
μικρῶν τινῶν ποτε
ζῴου τινός
ζῷόν τι
ζῷά τινα
ζῴων τινῶν
ζῴοις τέ τισι
λέοντός τινος
λεόντων τινῶν
λέοντά γε
μάχη τις
μάχαι τινές
μαχῶν τινων
μάχαις τισί
μάχης γε
μάχης τινός
νῆσοί τινες
νήσων τινῶν
νῆσόν τέ ποτέ ἐστι
παιεύομαί τε
παιδεύομέν γέ ποτε
ἐπαίδευέ τίς ποτε
ἐπαίδευόν τινα
παιδεύετέ τινές γέ ποτε
παιδεύει τινας
παιδεύω γε
παιδεύοι τινάς
παιδεύσετέ τινα
παιδεύσομέν γέ τινα

D

εἴ τίς ποτε παιδεύοι
αἵ γε καλαί
εἴ τι οὐκ ἔχεις
ὅ γε αἴξ καλός ἐστι
ἥ γε κακή ἐστι
ἔκ τε δένδρων

What's the difference between these? I accented them the same: παιδεύει τινάς and παιδεύοι τινάς.

I don't see the reason for the acute on αἴξ. There's no enclitic following it, so it should be αἲξ.

Thanx for these. Helpful corrections though some of my errors were different. I really wish Dickey had included answers for the accenting. Though there are other shortcomings in Lee I like the fact that all his exercises have answers. Using his exercises with Dickey's explanations is good though.

Thx
