Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

What has just occurred to me is that, even today, different people-groups 'see' colors differently. Many years ago I taught a class composed entirely of Iraqi students - and they had great difficulty in distinguishing between 'blue' and 'green' (It was a Chemistry class; one of the tests for an alka...

Re: Colors in Ancient Greek

- - - snip snip - - - I would love to have the opportunity to teach Greek directly, in a classroom or to individuals. Living in a small rural community as I do, though, the interest isn't there. So I hope to provide some materials like this to help teach indirectly. That, and articles I write for m...

Re: prep phrase position

Hello, I am brand new here and I have what is probably a very basic question but it's finals time and my brain isn't functioning. :D When using a prepositional phrase to modify a noun, does the placement before or after the noun matter to the meaning? for example: ηλθον προ εμοῦ or προ εμοῦ ηλθον T...

Re: New Greek Teacher

how much value is added to New Testament interpretation by reviving Koine and turning it into an anachronistic living language usable only by the rare folk who care to learn it? I don't think my students would be interested in using Koine as a spoken language. Their motivation for taking my class h...

Adam Denoon, - - - - snip snip - - - Text: If you like Grammar Translation methods, then Mounce, Croy, Machen, etc., all are the same to me. The only one that is a bit different is Dobson - less metalanguage and more simple practice. But our B-Greek member Shirley Rollinson improved on Dobson consi...

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

Perhaps you meant to place your question in the beginners forum? It could be placed there. The word ἕν is not alone here. It is part of a phrase: πρὸς ἓν τέλος, which means "toward one end." The word ἕν "one" is neuter because it agrees with the word τέλος "end," which is neuter. I see now that the...

Re: Hi Friends

Hi friends. Jesse here. Just found this forum via Google, as I'm learning Greek solo and my few expert friends are probably getting tired of me sending them questions! I'm working from Mounce's BBG (3rd ed). Currently on chapter 11, so wrestling with 3rd declension and personal pronouns right now. ...
