Re: Life after a basic grammar

I second what Drs. Shirley and Randall said about speaking Greek to yourself (including reading aloud, which can count as speaking). A fun way of doing this is by speaking to your pet if you have one. You can say things like: ιδου υδωρ ζων σου (Here's your fresh water), ιδου ο βροματος σου (Here's y...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Yes, it is fine to read other Bible versions. I am making my own, in fact (Here's a link to my post here about my blog, where you will find it in the near future: [http://www.ibiblio.org/bgreek/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4427 ). When I'm reading devotionally, not for teachng or preaching, I tend not...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Hi, Mindy, Another site for reading Westcott-Hort online is BibleHub, http://biblehub.com/whd/matthew/1.htm. This link does work. I checked it yesterday and this morning. The text does have accent marks and breathings. Concerning the King James Only and Majority Text views, I might have unintentiona...

Re: Online Texts (Byzantine Majority; Westcott-Hort)

Hello Mindy, A good source for Westcott-Hort (both text to read and audio to listen to) is John Simon's http://greeknewtestamentaudio.com . His reading uses a modified Historic/Modern Koine accent and is much better, and easy to listen to. Not a slow reading, but not fast either. There is a link the...

Re: public domain audio recording of Matthew in ancient Greek (the non-modern pronunciation)

The group may be interested in the note on pronunciation I put on the Resources page of my blog, Let Ancient Voices Speak ( http://letancientvoicesspeak.wordpress.com ): A Note on Greek Pronunciation There are several accents used for Ancient Greek: a reconstructed Attic or Classical one, the tradit...

Re: Modern Koine pronunciation resources

I downloaded the LXX files and they were very well done. I think the set is complete except for a few of the Psalms. I hope that Bible.is will be able to put them back up at some point. They were originally at the Vivlos site (Greek Bible Society) which used Flash player. Adobe announced they will n...

Re: Perseus Scaife Viewer

Seems strange. Not that I mind using it in Firefox. I like FF fine. Any ideas for a workaround? Or are you using an update past 10.12?

Re: Perseus Scaife Viewer

Interesting, because I just had upgraded from OS X 10.11 to 10.12 before trying it in Safari (about 2 days earlier). Are you both using Safari for Mac, or for Windows? Anyway, in Safari I get an error message that it can't load the viewer.

Re: Perseus Scaife Viewer

It works well in Firefox, so far, but not in Safari yet. (For Mac, at least.) Nice to see that they finally made it possible to enter Greek in Greek , and not have to use that ugly, clunky Betacode. Looking forward to exploring it more. The highlight feature to check morphology is welcome, too. Δεβέ...

Re: My New Blog-Ancient Language Aids, Bible Studies, κτλ

Οf course I should have written εταιροι, not ετεροι. As it happens, I pronounce both ε, αι as ε.
