Re: Daniel Streett's New Blog

Nice blog post. There is one aspect in Daniel's post I have a concern about: 2.You are not having to look words up in a dictionary.

Re: LSJ abbreviation

Thanks, Daniel, for the example. It's definitely Heliodorus. Instead of using LSJ at Perseus, I recommend that you use it at TLG instead: http://stephanus.tlg.uci.edu/lsj/ This one does a better job at resolving abbreviations, and it can even bring up a snippet of the cited text in context. Stephen

Re: Does pronunciation matter? If so, why?

May I have one last question: I suspect that anyone who has decided to adopt a certain system, the same person would use that system when reading any piece of ancient literature, regardless of its age.

Re: Accentuation of contracted verbs

It should have a circumflex. I don't know why Perseus lists a paroxytone for this verb. Perhaps a dialectal form?

Koine pleasantries

Tomorrow, another semester of teaching Greek begins for me, and on the first day of class I want them to engage in some Koine pleasantries.

I would welcome any suggestions. Some ideas I have include:

χαίρετε, ὄνομά μοι Στέφανος. τί ὄνομά σοι;

Any others I can work in?
