Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I've started creating Quisition packs for each chapter's vocab. I found that my major struggle thus far is not knowing the accents and endings. As I quipped on social media, I wish I could go back in time and scold my undergrad self! :D

Just search for Dickey in the pack library.

"Old Testament Quotations in the New Testament: A Complete Survey" by Archer and Chirichigno has a full treatment of all quotations in a nice format, I don't believe there's much analysis, so you'll have to supply your own.

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I've finished chapter one's sentences and analysis. I was having a bit of trouble with the translation in a a few of the analysis sentences. Since the purpose of the exercise is to evaluate the articles (or lack thereof), I had mercy on myself and consulted an English translation of Anabasis (which ...

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

Yup, can confirm there's no key for the accentuation. I've been using Perseus to spot check forms I was unsure of.

OK, here we go. Among other things, this should provide good polytonic typing practice. :-)

Re: Minimal Pairs for Greek Phonology

This has been a stimulating topic for me. Now I'm looking into how the python Levenshtein module handles diacritics. A question arose for me: Are there any minimal pairs (in terms of Greek phonology) which have an edit distance of two or greater? Presumably a diphthong swapped with a single vowel wo...

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I just got the book, but haven't had much time to evaluate how the exercises are laid out. Anyone have an opinion or feedback on pacing?

Re: Anyone want to work through Dickey's Greek Prose Composition book?

I've ordered the book and should have it some time next week. We've spoken with a few others in side channels who are interested, so it looks like we've got a group of interested folks.

Re: Linux: Greece Polytonic Keyboard (Gnome)

This may be getting a bit past b-greek's core topics, but... It is possible to transition Linux systems from one desktop environment to another without a re-install. However, it may not always be supported by your typical distribution. IIRC, Ubuntu has the ability to install LXDE (the desktop enviro...
