Re: Learning pronunciation for "Living Greek"

I had to write something up on Greek Pronunciation for a course I just took and thought I would share it here : We don’t actually know how Ancient Greek was pronounced. Today, there are four main schemes followed in pronouncing Ancient Greek. Modern Greek pronunciation is not recommended because it...

Re: New Linguistic Theories to learn

On a semi-related note, at some point I am going to have to take the dive down the rabbit hole and start reading work on second language acquisition. Has anyone else found this a benefit for teaching introductory Greek? Yes, it has been helpful in my teaching. Starting points might be listening to ...

Re: απτω

In Koine, Active Voice is "ignite" or "light" Middle/Passive is "touch." According to the search I just did of my Koine corpus (GNT, LXX, Josephus, Philo, pseudepigrapha, Church fathers, etc), there are only 14 hits on ἁπτω in the Active voice, all collocated with something that can be lit, πυρ, λυχ...

Re: What software doesn't do ....

What I would like to see is software that would show collocations like AntConc does for English and other languages. http://www.laurenceanthony.net/software/antconc/">http://www.laurenceanthony.net/software/antconc/ As an aside, a new Logos Bible Software tool I just found amazes me.

Collocations in Koine

Anyone have a list of collocations* in Koine. Or, even better, if you know how to search for collocations using Logos, I could research my whole Koine corpora. Σαῦλος * collocations - Words that go together. E.g. English adjectives: Strong smell, argument; heavy rain, drinker; big mistake, surprise;...

Re: 2nd year Greek for middle/high schoolers

Garrett, That sounds wonderful. So, it sounds like Barry's advice to read and use grammar as a reference to increase comprehensibility is a good plan. Have you tried to simplify stories for them? Sometimes it's called Leveled Stories, sometimes Embedded Readings. You take a text, and simplify it 2 o...

Re: 2nd year Greek for middle/high schoolers

Don't you think texts from the Bible will be far too difficult for beginners? If you could pull off doing TPRS with them, or Where Are Your Keys, you could tailor it to the right level (and it's much more fun). But that is a heavy load on you. You need to be the fluent speaker of Ancient Greek. If t...

Re: Hoping for real reading proficiency

Jonathan,

Thanks for posting your doc on asking questions in Koine.

How about adding μη & ου questioning?

How about a short bit on Answering? Are there normal and emphatic ways of answering? E.g. Εγω versus εγω γε.

The Jannaris chapter was interesting, but yours is much more useful.
