A group of us have decided to work through Eleanor Dickey's An Introduction to the Composition and Analysis of Greek Prose , which can be purchased online at Cambridge press or Amazon .

Re: Use B-Greek for Dickey's composition book?

Jason proposed that we start this off with a thread or two and make sure it has momentum before creating a sub-forum. I agree. Sounds fine to me. Also: Dickey's book is not easy. Plan on going slow. People may move at different rates. Just be aware of that ... Yes, it is quite difficult :D

Re: Use B-Greek for Dickey's composition book?

Assuming no objections come from the moderators/administrators, could somebody please create a subforum for us in the "Writing in Greek" section?

[Dickey] Group Proposal

I am once again desirous of working through Dickey's Greek composition book with other people. A few folks on Twitter and I chatted about it the other day and at least a few of us thought a forum would work well for this. I'm wondering if anyone would mind us using the Writing In Greek section for t...

Re: Athanasius Contra Gentes

I'm having a tough time finding a digitized version of the Greek text of this online. Anyone have a link?

Re: Syntax in Josephus Antiquities

Yes, this is a common thing to do in Greek. I don't know what the phenomenon is called, but I assumed it for the purpose of clarity of grouping.
