Ancient Greek Dictionary in Ancient Greek

Hi All, Does anyone know of a dictionary of classical or koine written classical or koine ? This might sound mildly mad but I think it would help with immersion in the language. The only example I have is Juan Coderch's translation of the Little Prince into Attic, which provides vocab helps in Attic...

Interesting. Is there a table of contents for this book? Amazon doesn't list it.
I was wondering that. Took a few searches but here is one:https://www.bokus.com/bok/9781556714139 ... cal-greek/

Re: [Dickey] Ch 2: Analysis

Comparing the two, I think that you are right that the first clause is subordinate not independent as my diagramming shows.

Re: The discursive use of και

I've been doing some reading on my own through Runge and Levinsohn's discourse textbooks, and I'm wondering something. If και used connectively typically joins two items of equivalent value, what are we to make of 1 Pet 5:13 ἀσπάζεται ὑμᾶς ἡ ἐν Βαβυλῶνι συνεκλεκτὴ ΚΑΙ Μᾶρκος ὁ υἱός μου. Can we real...

Re: Translation of the Words ἓν, ἤρξαντο, ἀναφορὰν ἔχειν

All the bible software function as diglots. This is horribly wrong! They need to dream in the ancient language. You can almost always find a way to use a tool badly. But perhaps a bible software or two might be persuaded to offer a mode where certain features don't work, specifically so that things...

Re: Confused about case endings for φῶς

It has to do with stem variation. Here's what Smyth says: 253. Variation of Stem Formation. – Many words of the third declension show traces of an original variation of stem that is due to the influence of a shifting accent which is seen in some of the cognate languages. In Greek this variation has...

Re: Books omitted from LXX

They're all present in my copies of the Septuagint. Here , for example, is the text of Baruch. The whole of the Septuagint is on that site. Thanks. Yes, I do know that these books exist in most editions of the Septuagint. That requires no explanation. My question pertains to why they are absent fro...

Re: In John 19:27 is it "to his own [home]" or "as his own [mother]"?

[Jhn 19:27 MGNT] (27) εἶτα λέγει τῷ μαθητῇ ἴδε ἡ μήτηρ σου καὶ ἀπ’ ἐκείνης τῆς ὥρας ἔλαβεν ὁ μαθητὴς αὐτὴν εἰς τὰ ἴδια Given it's neuter plural I would have taken it as "for his own possession/among his own possesssions". But that literal a thing here seems problematic. And "for his own" though I l...
