Re: Decode No More: Gestures

thanks so much for this detailed explanation. All my teaching is online, and I seriously doubt I'll get it together to make any videos myself, for awhile at least. So basically I'll be hoping to persuade students to make up their own gestures, to help with their language acquisition. Hence my hoping...

Re: How to choose UTF-8 encoding in Internet Explorer 9

The problem is in Yahoo. The character set should be in the html code, but Yahoo doesn't support it. For the IE, does this help: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-your-Internet-Explorer-language-settings ? well, I thought the problem was in Yahoo too -- right up until I was ap...

How to choose UTF-8 encoding in Internet Explorer 9

I'm a member of a small Yahoo group whose members use unicode Greek. For the first couple of weeks, we were all seeing the unicode displayed properly in our individual emails forwarded through the Yahoo group, but when any of us would try to look at the same posts within the online Yahoo Group, the ...

Re: Decode No More

this gesturing idea holds great intuitive appeal to me, maybe because of my Eastern European heritage and lifelong habit of "talking with my hands" :-) I teach intro Greek online, and would like to suggest this method to my students. Do you have or might you be willing to make some really really beg...

Re: αγωνιζομαι

thanks so much, everyone -- I especially appreciate the specific reference to Mounce MBG 46.4 -- I had only been looking at the v-2a(1) list of verbs... It's comforting, that the 3rd person plural uses periphrasis; makes me feel better that I couldn't think of or find any perfect indicatives... :-) ...

αγωνιζομαι

I've been taking to heart the many exhortations on b-greek to try to learn to form my own Greek sentences... as you've always claimed, it's a very helpful practice. Thanks! I want to paraphrase 2 Tim 4:7 for my students, and can't figure out what to do with ηγωνισμαι. I'm wanting to make the 1st per...

Re: Online Course by Steven Runge of Logos

Sometime back I bought Steve Runge's "Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament" and really like it... I just now ordered the video version of the course described on this thread... Doktorvater, pandering, b-greekally incorrect, macht's mir nicht... I think he highlights some tools and perspectiv...

Re: Why fonts matter ...

I've received quite a few emails over the years asking me to help someone with their chosen Bible verse for a tattoo, in Greek or Hebrew. I always send pdf (with embedded fonts) or jpg, ink-ready so to speak. Sometimes I do a little pastoral counseling about choice of text and literary context on th...

Re: Three Methods for Helping Beginners Learn to read Hel. I

does anyone know of, or is anyone working on, a 'leveled reader' like what Jeffrey Quadt describes? "What I have suggested in the past is more of a "leveled reader" approach. This kind of approach would only serve the function of teaching students to read and comprehend Greek, and would not meet the...
