What is DECODING and GRAMMAR/TRANSLATION?

There have been a few discussions on Grammar/Translation and Decoding in the B-Greek archives. One was started in 2009 labelled Grammar-Translation http://lists.ibiblio.org/pipermail/b-greek/2009-August/050028.html and another as recent as Feb 2011 titled "DECODING?" http://lists.ibiblio.org/piperma...

Share your learning experience...and how it rates

I'm sure a number of people would love to hear how others first learned ancient Greek, and what they think of it in retrospect. The point here is not to trash teachers or books (you can be frank about the books), but to try to highlight the kinds of exercises, activities, were more helpful than othe...

Re: Best textbooks (Beginning, Intermediate)

Each grammar has its own strengths. Buth's forte is phrase-replacement and audio association with sounds. Croy is is LXX quotations and scripture passages which are representative of the points he is trying to demonstrate. Mounce is excellent on morphology. He's got one of the most complete and orga...

Re: Favorite Greek-related Blogs?

I don't browse blogs much. Ones I find that have interesting resources related to Greek in some way I'll put here. Koinonia: biblical-theological conversations for the community of Chist http://www.koinoniablog.net/ is a blog hosted by Zondervan Academic. It has posts from Mounce and Wallace, among ...

What Next after First Year Greek?

I'm sure that many who have spent the time and effort to study through a whole year of Greek are wondering where do I go from here. Do I read through a book of the New Testament? Should I get a Greek reader like Mounce's Graded Reader or Deckert's Koiné Greek Reader? Should I read through another be...

Re: Policy: Unicode and Transliteration

A very handy tool for transcribing from Betacode to Unicode is by Tom Moore, one of our B-Greek members, on his site Katabiblon.com. It's called the "Hopperizer" because it lets you also link texts to the Perseus LSJ lexicon/parser. http://www.katabiblon.com/tools/perseus-hopperizer/index.php If you...

Songs as a method for internalizing Greek

One of the things I've been involved in over the last several years has been to translate Praise and Worship songs, Children's song, and many secular songs into Koine Greek. Why would I do this? Why is this valuable to those wishing to internalize Greek? 1) Songs are stored in the memory different t...

Re: Does pronunciation matter? If so, why?

I think the first thing that those who listen to Greek audio of the New Testament is that they pronounce the accents correctly and consistently, and that they produce the vowels, diphthongs and consonants consistently. (I keep a resource page on audio recordings of the Greek New Testament at http://...
