Re: Composition based on ἀνακαθίζειν.

Thanks. So it's sitting propped up with your arms, a nice parallel with αναστηναι. By "for composition" do you mean "In what scenarios might a person use such a word?" Hearing a noise outside, he sat up in bed and looked out the window. The boss found him slouched in his chair. When the boss walked ...

Re: Cardo rhos fixed

Eeli, Brilliant. Thanks much. In the image you can see how serious the flaw was. Also in the image, you can see that somehow, you have fixed a problem with BOLD and ITALICS. They never displayed correctly.

Re: John 17:3 ινα + subjunctive = to an infinitive?

The two grammar excerpts did not help me. Let me try conjecture. Scott’s composed sentence reads: αὕτη δέ ἐστιν ἡ αἰώνιος ζωὴ το γινώσκειν σὲ. [This then is eternal life: to know you] Would it work to include in this sentence an Accusative of Reference ( “Accusative as Subject of an Infinitive”). Co...

Re: Noto fonts from Google

That would be great. It's simply a matter of too much space between the rough breathing mark and rho.

Re: Noto fonts from Google

Noto Serif isn't bad for polytonic Greek.

Cardo is still my favorite for my class notes. It does have one glitch - the rough breathing mark + rho doesn't look right. I've tried and failed to contact the creator.

Re: Listing verbs in infinitive form

Alan, Seems to me you have to choose what's best for print or what's best for digital, not both. If the lexicon is digital, is there any big obstacle to a user being able to enter ANY form and reach the entry? If that is possible, then I would certainly be in favor of the Infinitive being the headwo...

Re: Accute or Grave accent?

Carsen's book is very good. If you are not writing Greek much, it's more than you need. Just read a basic description in just about any Greek beginning grammar. I write a lot of Greek and made a study of Carsen's book, but still have trouble with accents. Yes, when quoting the single word υἱός (or r...

Re: Beginning Greek - syllabi, Learning Objectives, etc.

Shirley, I don't have anything already written that would serve, but since I just now studying curriculum/syllabus writing, I wouldn't mind giving it a shot for practice. I assume that the course will be using Grammar-Translation Method. That makes it quite easy. I would need more detail, though. On...

Re: "zero" - My rational for μηδέν rather than οὐδέν

I see what you are saying, Stephen. I haven't looked at usage at all, but theoretically, your view of μηδεν and ouδεν mesh with my understanding of the μη/ου choice.
