Re: Diogenes 4.4 - supported reading and searching of Greek and Latin Texts

Great, thanks. I downloaded the library files yesterday. Will install everything this weekend and try it out. Have used the older Mac version of Diogenes for several years now, but lacked access to the TLG archives, except for the demo version online. It will be nice to have the Latin also. Up to no...

Re: Diogenes 4.4 - supported reading and searching of Greek and Latin Texts

Nathaniel, thanks for sharing the Diogenes text file links. I hope to download them soon. Where do I need to install them on my Mac? I already have the Diogenes update itself, but haven't installed it yet.

Re: συνεχύθη in Acts 2.6

Hi Barry, Thanks for your comment on Jerome's rendering of קרן which resulted in the horned Moses. I'm considering a blog post on that for my second Latin piece in the Ancient Language Aids category. As I don't have access to HALOT, I appreciate the citation. I will consider it along with other data...

Re: Might the Romans have spoken Greek with an "Italian accent"?

And of course, some of them, at least, spoke Latin that way :D . At least, the average Roman in the street probably did.

Re: Typing Tutor for Ancient Greek

Hi Jonathan, If you don't mind using the Hebrew QWERTY keyboard, the Nikud are available on it for Mac. Just go to the Systems Preferences and activate it under the Language and Region options for keyboard input. Once you have the keyboard activated, you just press the option key and you can see the...

Re: Typing Tutor for Ancient Greek

Besides these excellent suggestions by Nathaniel, many computer systems (and phones too, probably) offer apps with on-screen keyboards. These can be toggled on and off as desired. They also show which keys and combinations are needed for polytonic Greek if such a keyboard is available for your OS. A...

Re: A Graded Reader keyed to Duff's Grammar

The Greek Font Society has a selection of very nice free fonts from various periods that support polytonic. Many of them are Open Font License. Here's a link: https://www.greekfontsociety-gfs.gr/typefaces They even have an uncial font that resembles that used in manuscripts.

Re: Greek Byzantine New Testament MP3

Well, it says the LXX audio is included, but when you download it (I did, just now) and open the package, only the GNT is there. Hopefully they will update the package to include the LXX at some point. Mark Cain has an ongoing project to make the Hebrew OT available for listening while you read at h...

Re: Editors Needed for Greek Lexicon

Abbott-Smith is old, but good, and still helpful. I use it quite a bit. Some years ago I found it online for download in an HTML edition. It opens in your web browser. It is probably available now in additional digital formats. A-S focuses on the GNT, but also covers some Septuagint vocab. Like BAGD...
